The Serie A champions are offloading former United striker Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea for a club-record £97.5 million deal and may even sell his striker partner Lautaro Martinez to Spurs for £60 million.
Inter's title-winning forward line will be severely dented by the potential deals but the Nerazzurri need to sell due to their financial troubles.
But according The Mirror, Inter have identified Martial as their ideal replacement for the departing Lukaku.
:pencil: - Inter Milan want to sign Anthony Martial on loan. Manchester United would only agree to such deal if there was an obligation to buy as they want to recoup most of the £50m they paid six years ago #mufc #mujournal- United Journal (@theutdjournal) August 7, 2021
The Nerazzurri have been heavily linked with the Frenchman over the years and there was a talk of a swap deal involving Ivan Perisic being initiated a couple of years back when Jose Mourinho was in charge.
It never materialised but Inter's interest remains and they are said to be hopeful of taking the former Monaco man on loan.
United would want an obligation to buy Martial inserted in the deal and are looking to recoup most of the fee they paid to bring him to Old Trafford in 2015.
The Red Devils forked out around £50 million for Martial, who only scored four goals in the Premier League last term and spent the latter part of the season on the sidelines due to a knee injury suffered playing for France.
He returned to action and played 45 minutes in the 4-0 friendly win over Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday.
"He's been training well with us but players who've been out for a while, they need some more sharpness, need some more work," manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Martial's condition.
"It's better than what you fear sometimes when he's been injured since March. He felt good after, the knee was showing no side effects, no reaction. Hopefully it'll be the same when he comes into training again."
