Manchester United have reportedly turned down approaches for France international forward Anthony Martial this summer, according to RMC Sport.

The Premier League side, who suffered a 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night, have been linked with offloading the out of favour winger during this month’s transfer window.

The 22-year-old, who has 18 international caps for his country, has made just one competitive appearance for The Red Devils so far this season, starting United’s 3-2 league loss at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Martial was left out of manager Jose Mourinho’s matchday squad entirely during last night’s defeat to Spurs.

The left winger, who was not included in France’s World Cup-winning squad earlier this summer in Russia, has scored 36 goals in 137 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League side, following his transfer from AS Monaco back in September 2015, in a deal worth up to £58m.

The report claims United have rejected approaches from both AC Milan and Atletico Madrid for Martial, whose long-term future at The Theatre of Dreams is in doubt.

Martial is contracted at United until June 2019, and is valued at £58.5m.
