Manchester United 'reject Tottenham Hotspur's Anthony Martial bid'

Anthony Martial

Having finished second in the Premier League last season, Tottenham have had a relatively quiet transfer window.

The 21-year-old forward's future at Manchester United has been in doubt this summer with Jose Mourinho preferring wide players that will play with more defensive discipline than the French global.

Monaco had been minded to sell at the earlier price, but lost other players and became determined not to lose Martial to Tottenham or anyone else, and that's why it took such a huge effort from Manchester United late in August.

However under Jose Mourinho, the forward saw much less action, despite United's heavy fixture list, and only managed to score eight goals in all competitions.

It seems that Spurs are now taking corrective measures, however, with RMC Sport in France claiming that they have had a bid for Martial rejected by Manchester United.

Tottenham are the only team in the Premier League yet to sign a new player this summer but consistency and the high standards demanded by Pochettino should ensure that Spurs are a challenger again this season.

Throughout the summer Martial has been linked with a move to the San Siro, as part of a swap deal with Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.
