Manchester United have rebuffed an approach from Tottenham Hotspur for Anthony Martial, according to a report in the local media.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that Spurs made an initial approach to ask about the availability of the France international in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Manchester United have responded in an emphatic manner over the potential sale of Martial before the start of the new Premier League season.

According to the same story, the Red Devils have quoted Spurs a “silly price” if the north London side are serious about a summer deal to bring Martial to White Hart Lane.

Manchester United are rumoured to be interested in Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, but Spurs have played hard ball with their title rivals over a potential deal.

This could explain why the Red Devils are proving tough negotiators with Tottenham over a price for their want-away 22-year-old attacker.

Manchester Evening News predict that the situation surrounding the futures of Martial and Alderweireld will continue to “rumble on” throughout the summer transfer window.a

Manchester United signed Martial in a £36m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in the 2015 summer transfer window under Louis van Gaal.
