Manchester United have reportedly knocked back an approach made by Tottenham Hotspur for French attacker Anthony Martial, according to RMC Sport via thefaithfulmufc.

Spurs have Harry Kane as their main attacking weapon but lack a proven alternative to lead the line, with Vincent Janssen failing to impress after a move from AZ Alkamar 12 months ago.

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 worldwide.

Bouhafsi also claimed that Inter Milan have had a loan-to-buy offer for Martial rejected by United. The Italian club wants the former Monaco star to be a replacement for Ivan Perisic if United get hold of the Croatian.

Tottenham, however, are already title challengers, if the previous two seasons are anything to go by, and if the Portuguese manager refused to sanction Ba's switch to the Emirates then he's hardly going to let a player of Martial's calibre and potential join Spurs. But Inter's hard stance on a transfer valuation, and their desire to involve Martial as part of the deal, will make a move very difficult.

The forward, who has scored 15 goals in 56 Premier League appearances for United, has been good touch in pre-season and will hope to carry that into the new campaign.
