Having already reached an agreement, in confirmed football transfer news, Sevilla will sign Anthony Martial on loan from Manchester United.
News of Anthony Martial wanting to leave Manchester United, as he was desperate for more game time, broke in December.
Martial has started just four games for United this season. Ralf Rangnick, the club’s interim manager, then even accused him of asking not to play on January 15. Indeed, he was absent in the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa.
Compare this to when Martial became the world’s most expensive teenager while joining United from Monaco in 2015. He then went on to score 79 times in 269 appearances for the Old Trafford club.
But he fell out of favour following new signings – Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho – joining in the summer. Martial fell further down the pecking order in the forward positions with emergence of Mason Greenwood.
Confirmed Football Transfer News – Sevilla Will Sign Anthony Martial
So, the 26-year-old will now join Sevilla, who will pay his wages in full, until the end of the season. As the La Liga side are paying his salary despite just loaning him for a season, there’s no loan fee.
Martial will fly from Paris, where he is currently located, to Seville on Tuesday to undergo a medical.
The forward always wanted to join Sevilla this month, despite interest from Juventus and Barcelona, because he believes that is where he will play the most.
