So why are we wasting our time then?
I think you might find that the "won't sell to us" stuff is an opinion rather than actually being any sort of ITK. It's pretty obvious why someone would think not. However the proof of this one will very much come later in the window

@bozzaSPUR Just because we get ITK about our club, doesn't mean the sources necessarily work at the club. They could be involved agent side or multiple other avenues.

I didn't quote your post as you might want to remove it. That sort of talk doesn't usually last in here for long (y)

Hertyid has said "Poch won't be selling Rose this summer".

That was in relation to us swapping him for Martial.
Good. I know we are looking at him through shit-tinted spectacles at the moment but the truth is when fit he's a very good player. We are already short at RB and we shouldn't mirror the situation. But even beyond that, we need to make it look like just being a nobhead in the media isn't what gets you a big money move out of Spurs.

One would imagine Wimmer would be gone if we sign another centre half and almost 20 mill from the saints seems like a good deal. I do like him but he has his limitations and he obviously wasn't trusted entirely by Poch last season. It would be nice to keep Sonny's best buddy though to keep him happy ....

I think we were told before that Levy's response to a Dier enquiry was 'only if you give us Rashford' as a bit of a mug off.

This feels similar. No doubt we are interested but by bidding we have now counter-punched any late bids for Rose (or Dier). You don't want to sell Martial, we can't sell ours.

Also it's worth talking to Martial if he is interested and if we can afford him (wages could be an issue), he could try and force it to us if Jose wants him out, like Welbeck did with Arsenal.

Why couldn't Martial just come to Spurs from Monaco when he had the chance? I don't get how young players can't see the seat on the bench waiting for them at clubs with such depth and money to go buy proven players. Same with Batshuayi even though I'm glad he chose Chelsea because he seems like a Belgian Janssen. Martial would have developed and probably played a lot more under Poch.

We wouldn't match the fees paid

That wasn't really the case when he joined United.

Rooney was steadily in decline, Rashford was in the youth team, Chicharito was on the bench and Zlatan was at PSG.

Martial was United'a most-used forward in his first season and also their top scorer, ahead of Rooney and Mata.

He probably assumed he was signing for a better club. Which he wasn't.

The fool gave latest ITK a 'dislike' rating as well, sigh...
