According to reports coming from France, Tottenham Hotspurs have had an offer for Antonio Martial rejected by Manchester United for the Frenchman.
There has been plenty of interest from number of clubs for Martial this summer with the likes of Arsenal, Inter Milan showing huge interest.
Martial has had limited opportunities since Jose Mourinho took charge of the club last summer only registering 18 Premier League starts and a further four in our successful run in the Europa League campaign last season.
As we’re competing in the Champions League and hoping to challenge for the Premier League title this season, the Portuguese manager will need a lot of depth and the £65,000 a week man is certainly a big part of that. He can be used as an impact sub both on the left of the attack, and as a striker. When Jose rotates his squad, particularly with Champions League midweek fixture, the Frenchman is one of those starters.
Manchester United a aussi refusé une offre de prêt avec option d'achat de @Inter pour Anthony Martial !

French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, who works for RMC Sports in France, Tweeted an hour ago that United turned down Tottenham’s offer for Martial. Bouhafsi also reported that we have rejected a loan offer from Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan:
Martial’s name has come up in discussions with the Italian side over the possible signing of Ivan Perisic too. With more than two weeks of the transfer window remaining we cannot rule out a switch deal between the two clubs.
One would have to think Tottenham are very unlikely to secure a deal for Anthony Martial this summer – unless they want to pass Christian Eriksen or Harry Kane our way!
