Spurs have approach knocked back from Man United attacker

His name came up in transfer talks with Inter when United were trying to secure the signing of Ivan Perisic, and Spurs have now made a concrete offer for Martial's services - according to RMC Sport.

He may not have established himself as a first team regular under Jose Mourinho, but it would appear that Anthony Martial is still a part of the Portuguese manager's plans at Old Trafford, with Manchester United today rejecting a bid for the French forward.

Quoted by The Belfast Telegraph, Mourinho said: "We didn't accept Arsenal's offer for Demba Ba because the signing of Ozil makes them title contenders".

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.
