Manchester United and Tottenham have opened talks with Rennes over a move for Martin Terrier, who has previously received high praise from none other than Arsenal and France legend Thierry Henry. Terrier has experienced a rapid rise to prominence over the last 18 months as a result of his formidable exploits in front of goal and narrowly missed out on a place in the France squad at this year’s World Cup.
The 25-year-old managed 21 goals and seven assists in all competitions for Rennes last season and has continued in the same vein this time around by registering 15 goal involvements in 20 games thus far. Terrier’s form has piqued the interest of United and Tottenham ahead of the upcoming January window, with both clubs having opened discussions with Rennes over the possibility of securing his signature, according to Media Foot.
It is claimed that the Red Devils and Spurs have asked about a potential transfer fee, wages and if the player is keen on a mid-season move to the Premier League over the coming weeks. Terrier was said to be valued at around £34million over the summer but his asking price is likely to have increased in recent months as a result of his prolific goal return since the beginning of the campaign.
United are widely believed to be in the market for a new striker to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Old Trafford by mutual consent after his tell-all interview with Piers Morgan towards the end of last month. Tottenham, meanwhile, are seeking additional cover for Harry Kane at the top of the pitch and could well decide to move for Terrier to fill the role between now and the end of the January window.
