Reports: Premier League Club Make Audacious Move For Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial is struggling to make an impact at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho. He has been shunted out to the wing regularly, and anytime he does make an impact, it is usually followed by a stern Jose Mourinho demanding more.

An example came against Real Madrid in pre-season. Martial ruined the Madrid defence in assisting Jesse Lingard, to which a phlegmatic Mourinho responded by asking Martial for more consistency. He was rumoured as expendable when United were in pursuit of Ivan Perisic.

Given his precarious position within the United starting team along with his obvious talent, Martial - the most expensive teenager in world football - has been subject to a bid by a rival Premier League club....Tottenham.

Spurs have yet to sign anyone this season, and their issues are compounded by the sale of Kyle Walker to Man City and the unhappiness of Danny Rose, who has complained over a lack of transfer activity and the club's relatively stringent wage policy.

It seems that Spurs are now taking corrective measures, however, with RMC Sport in France claiming that they have had a bid for Martial rejected by Manchester United.

We'll see how this plays out. We can't see Mourinho strengthening the hand of a title rival, but he does like a relatively tightly-knit squad, and has sold the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku in the past.
