Anthony Martial has told his agent that he wants to leave Manchester United, news that has excited Tottenham Hotspur fans who would love to see him in a Spurs shirt.

Although a number of clubs will be interested in signing the France international, the Red Devils would likely prefer to sell him to a club outside of England.

However, with United also interested in buying Spurs’ central defender Toby Alderweireld, the North London club could pursue Martial as part of the deal.

The 22-year-old joined United from Monaco in 2015 and has so far made 136 appearances for the club, scoring 36 goals and contributing 26 assists.

However, Martial has gradually found opportunities harder to come by at Old Trafford, particularly since the arrival in January of Alexis Sanchez.

The Frenchman, who just missed out on being part of his country’s World Cup squad, seems to feel his best interests would be suited by a move away from United.

Tottenham, who have recently been linked with wingers including Wilfried Zaha and Malcom, could see Martial as a welcome addition to their squad.

A potential transfer would see him join wide men Heung-min Son, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou at the club.

Martial’s ability to also play as a centre-forward would interest Spurs, who currently only have Fernando Llorente as an alternative to Harry Kane.

After his agent confirmed that talks with his current club have stalled, with United keen to keep him but the player unwilling to stay, it seems clear he will be on his way out this summer.

However, Tottenham could still face competition for Martial’s signature with London rivals Chelsea also reportedly interested.

Nevertheless, that has not stopped Spurs fans taking to Twitter and giving their views on a potential move for the Frenchman.

And while the majority would love to see him heading to North London, there are a few who take a more sceptical view.
