And if any deal is on the table, Tottenham are ready to make their own move for France ace Martial, who has fallen down the United pecking order under Jose Mourinho.

Spurs refused to buckle when Alderweireld, 29, demanded a rise to £150,000 per week in order to sign a new deal at the club.

Tottenham had offered Alderweireld an increase to £110,000 per week but the negotiations were broken off as the Belgian’s status in the Spurs squad diminished.

United landed the young Frenchman from Monaco in 2015 in a deal worth up to £58m but he has struggled to make a mark in his two years under Mourinho.

Pochettino, though, believes he can reignite Martial’s career and give Spurs extra firepower as they prepare for their return to N17 and their new 62,000 home next season.
