Premier League Lifeline for Martial

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial could be set for a Premier League lifeline this summer as he prepares to leave the club with his contract expiring.

Tottenham Hotspur Interested

Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as potential suitors for the 28-year-old forward, who has also been linked with Inter Milan and Fenerbahce.

Juventus in the Mix

However, Spurs may face competition from Serie A giants Juventus, who are also considering a move for Martial to bolster their attacking options.

Financial Considerations

Tottenham could have the upper hand in the race for Martial as Juventus may struggle to meet the player's £240,000-a-week wage demands.

Playing Style and Options

If Martial were to join Tottenham, he could provide manager Ange Postecoglou with a more direct attacking option, potentially as a traditional striker or on the wing.

Struggles at Man United

Martial has faced fitness issues this season at Manchester United, making just 13 Premier League appearances and scoring two goals in 19 total matches.
