Anthony Martial & Tottenham
Last weekend, an eye-catching rumour was revealed by RMC Sport.
Usually a pretty reliable source, the French news outlet announced that Tottenham have had a bid rejected for Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial.
The RMC Sport article was incredibly vague on Tottenham’s offer. Moreover, the report revealed an apparent two-horse race for Martial, which also includes Inter Milan.
All RMC Sport revealed was that the Spurs bid which was rejected was for a permanent move. And, that Inter Milan’s offer for Martial was a loan bid.
Martial & Man United
Last weekend, Martial came off the bench and scored in Man United’s 4-0 win against West Ham.
But where is Martial is the Man United pecking order?
Rumours have been rife about Anthony Martial all summer, suggesting he could be set to leave the Red Devils.
Martial struggled for first team opportunities last season under Jose Mourinho and it looks like being the same situation in 2017/2018.
Martial’s cousin posts update
On Tuesday night, Martial’s cousin, who goes by @JemaMtl_22 on Twitter, posted an update about the Man United star.
Interestingly, @JemaMtl_22 the deleted his tweet.
Either way, it was claimed that: For Manchester United, Anthony leaving is not an option, even on loan. They rely on him.
Just under a month ago, @JemaMtl_22 also took to Twitter to again claim Martial is going nowhere.
At that time, JM22 announced that while Inter have indeed made contact with United about Martial’s availability, the French international is “focused” on Man United and the has no intention of leaving the club.
Je confirme l'intérêt de l'Inter pour Antho. Mais sa tête est à Manchester et il est concentré pour faire une bonne préparation.
