Tottenham Hotspur have had an offer for Anthony Martial rejected, according to reports in France.
There has been plenty of interest from a number of clubs for Anthony Martial this summer if reports are to be believed. The young forward has had limited opportunities since Jose Mourinho took charge last summer – making 18 Premier League starts and a further four in our successful Europa League campaign last season.
As we’re competing in the Champions League and hoping to challenge for the Premier League title this season Mourinho will need a lot of depth and Martial 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 Mourinho rotates his squad, particularly with Champions League midweek fixtures, Martial is one of those starters.
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:
Manchester United a aussi refusé une offre de prêt avec option d'achat de @Inter pour Anthony Martial !

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!
