Anthony Martial: Sevilla make Manchester United loan offer to sign up for rest of season | Football news
Sevilla have made an offer to Manchester United for the Anthony Martial loan.
This is a direct loan proposal until the end of the season that does not include an option or obligation to buy.
United have yet to respond to the Spanish club. Interim manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed Martial told him he wanted to quit talks between the two last week.
Rangnick said he understands why, but that any deal has to be good for the club.
Ahead of their 1-1 draw with Newcastle, the acting United boss said: “We spoke at length on Wednesday.
“He explained to me that he has been at Manchester United for seven years now and that he thinks it is a good time to change, to go elsewhere.
“I think in a way it’s understandable I could follow his thoughts. But, on the other hand, it’s also important to see the situation at the club; we have Covid times, we have three competitions in which we still have great ambitions and we want to be as successful as possible.
“I told him ‘listen, as long as no club is interested in you …’ – and that shouldn’t only be in the player’s best interest, it should be in the club’s interest as well.
“So far, as far as I know, there have been no offers from any other club and as long as that is the case, they will stay.”
Sky Sports News exclusively announced the news that Martial wanted to leave earlier this month via a statement from his representative Philippe Lamboley.
Sky Sports News also exclusively revealed that Sevilla is Martial’s preferred destination, amid interest from Barcelona and Juventus.
United have been contacted for comment.
Martial became the world’s most expensive teenager when he joined United from Monaco in 2015 and he has scored 79 times in 268 appearances for the club.
The 26-year-old has fallen out of favor in the forward positions following the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho this summer, as well as the emergence of Mason Greenwood.
