Tottenham are the only team in the Premier League yet to sign a new player this summer but consistency and the high standards demanded by Pochettino should ensure that Spurs are a challenger again this season.

Details of the bid for the forward are still unclear, although RMC Sport have claimed United have already rejected it.

That move failed to materialised, and after Martial had joined Manchester United at the end of the 2015 window, French newspaper L'Equipe said Tottenham had actually put forward an improved €40m, only to see it knocked back.

The report suggests that United have wasted little time in turning down the offer from last season's Premier League runners-up, with Jose Mourinho clearly rating the France worldwide and having a role for him at Old Trafford this season.

Manchester United turned down both approaches, considering him off the market.

Although Mourinho has insisted on numerous occasions that he intends to keep the French worldwide at Old Trafford, it hasn't stopped some reports this summer that he could be set to leave.

Throughout the summer Martial has been linked with a move to the San Siro, as part of a swap deal with Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

Selling him to Mauricio Pochettino's side would strengthen the Lilywhites' Premier League title bid more than Ba would have strengthened Arsenal's four years ago and fans of the North London club shouldn't get their hopes up over signing Martial.
