Manchester United are still to table an official approach for Everton pair Leighton Baines and Maroune Fellaini after Roberto Martinez reaffirmed that the club have received no additional offers for their star players.
Latest reports suggest the Premier League champions are preparing a joint-bid for the pair as new manager David Moyes frantically attempts to add to his squad ahead of the new season.
United have failed in two bids for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas and have only added Uruguay youngster Guillermo Varela during the summer transfer window.
Moyes brought both Baines and Fellaini to Goodison Park from Wigan Athletic and Standard Liege respectively and is understood to want to make the duo the first significant additions of his tenure at Old Trafford.
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright confirmed earlier this summer that an approach had been rejected for Baines while suggesting the club would vulnerable to a bid matching Fellaini's reported £24m release clause.
But Martinez has clarified that no additional approaches have been made by United with the start of the Premier League season imminent.
"We've had no approaches for any of our players," Martinez told Sky Sports. "There was a previous approach that was well documented and well known for Leighton. That was a final offer, and that was done.
"I'll never go away from the fact that when people speak about the players at Everton, they've done well and it's a real compliment."
Fellaini was left out of Everton's final pre-season friendly against Real Betis, swelling suggestions regarding his future on Merseyside but the midfielder is expected to feature for Belgium in their mid-week friendly against Slovakia.
Mystery injuries have seen transfer targets Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez all ruled out of pre-season action and rumours were rife that Fellaini's sudden problem was linked to his future at Everton.
But Martinez says the 25 year old would have featured over the weekend had the game been a competitive fixture dampening suggestions his ommission was linked to talks with United.
"Marouane would have been available if it was a competitive game," Martinez said.
"He picked up a cut on the US tour. Bearing in mind he has to join the Belgium squad now - and in two days the infection will clear - I didn't want to risk hurting him."
