Spurs still in the race to sign Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial could be on his way to White Hart Lane in this transfer window.

It has been reported that Anthony Martial could be on his way to Tottenham this summer, but with an £80 million price tag on him, a swap deal with Toby Alderweireld could be on the cards.

Martial has failed to impress Mourinho, particularly since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window.

It was reported that Spurs were unwilling to pay such a high price for the Frenchman, so the swap deal involving Alderweireld could be ideal for both clubs.

United have expressed an interest in the Belgium international and they have already had a £55 million bid rejected by the London club who have set a £75 million price tag on the defender.

United aren’t likely to reach the asking price for Alderweireld but with Martial being out of favour at Old Trafford a swap deal involving the two could be the only way the two clubs can capture their targets.

A deal will need to be agreed quickly though, with Italian giants Juventus also vowing for the signature of Martial.

Martial’s agent has revealed the Frenchman does want to leave Old Trafford.

“After thinking about all the possibilities and scenarios, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United.

”Manchester United want to extend Anthony’s contract and do not want him to leave, but we have not been able to find an agreement for several months.”
