Sevilla 'make offer to take Man United striker Martial on loan'

Sevilla ‘make offer to take Man United striker Anthony Martial on loan’ until the end of the season as French striker seeks more game time having fallen out of favour at Old Trafford

  • Anthony Martial has fallen out of favour at Manchester United this season
  • French striker has told Ralf Rangnick he is keen to leave Old Trafford in January
  • Now Sevilla have reportedly offered to take him on loan for rest of the campaign
  • Proposed deal does not include the option or obligation to sign him in summer 

Sevilla ‘have submitted an offer to take Manchester United striker Anthony Martial on loan’.

The French striker has informed United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick that he wishes to leave Old Trafford because of a lack of game time this season.

Rangnick said he was sympathetic to Martial’s position but any deal must be right for United.

Now, Sky Sports have reported that the LaLiga club have proposed a straight loan until the end of the season that does not include an obligation to buy Martial afterwards or an option on him. United are yet to respond to Sevilla’s offer.

Sevilla is believed to be Martial’s preferred destination if he is to move during the January window.

The 26-year-old is contracted to United for another two-and-a-half years and earns £200,000-a-week but has fallen down the pecking order this season.

The former Monaco player has scored 79 goals in 268 games since joining United in 2015 for a fee worth up to £58million but he has made only four starts this season and not featured in the new manager’s first four games due to injury.

‘We spoke at length,’ said Rangnick ahead of Monday’s 1-1 draw at Newcastle. 

‘He explained to me he’s been at Manchester United now for the last seven years and he feels it’s the right time for a change, to go somewhere else.

‘In a way this is understandable. I could follow his thoughts, but on the other hand, it’s also important to see the situation of the club. 

‘We have Covid times, we have three competitions in which we still have high ambitions and want to be as successful as we can be.

‘It should not only be in the interest of the player, it should also be in the interest of the club. So far, as far as I know, there has been no offer from any other club and as long as this is the case he will stay.’
