Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Anthony Martial speculation
By Danny Wright
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter after rumours surfaced linking Manchester United’s Anthony Martial to White Hart Lane.
The Frenchman has struggled for game-time under Jose Mourinho and it has been reported that Spurs could be interested in trying to prise him from their Premier League rivals.
Martial was reportedly on the radar of Spurs before he moved to Manchester in 2015 in a massive £42million deal.
The 21-year-old scored 18 goals in his debut season with United, but has found times a lot tougher under Mourinho and has only scored three Premier League goals in 14 appearances during the current campaign.
Spurs fans were mostly positive on social media about the news, but also rather skeptical as to whether Mauricio Pochettino could pull off the deal.

We'd be lucky to get Shaw or Rashford for 20 mil. Martial would cost at least 30 mil. Never. Going. To. Happen.

Martial scored and bagged an assist in his last appearance for United against Watford on Saturday.
However he has only completed a full 90 minutes of Premier League football on just one occasion since Mourinho replaced Louis Van Gaal in the summer – when he scored in a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough on New Years’ Eve.
It’s worth mentioning that in each of the league games he has scored in, Martial hasn’t played in the game that followed.
In other Tottenham news, fans urge Pochettino to bring 22-year-old out of the cold for Europa League clash.
