United reject Martial bid

Reports in France claim that Manchester United have rejected an offer from Premier League rivals Tottenham for forward Anthony Martial.

French publicaiton 'RMC Sport' claims that Spurs have seen a 'concrete bid' for the 21-year-old turned down by United, who are keen to keep the player.

Martial has been regularly linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer after struggling to force his way into United boss Jose Mourinho's first choice line-up last season. 

The player's name is believed to have cropped up during talks with Inter Milan over a move for Ivan Perisic but United would not entertain the idea of a move then and it is understood that nothing has changed on that front.

It is no secret that Spurs are on the lookout for a new forward player this summer, having previously been credited with an interest in Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha. 

With a move for Zaha now all but off the table following the Ivorian's decision to sign a new long-term contract with Palace in May, Spurs have been forced to look elsewhere and it is believed that Martial is a serious target for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
