Manchester United and Sevilla agree on a loan deal for Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial has agreed to join Sevilla on loan for the remainder of the season, subject to a medical.

There is no purchase option and no loan fee, but the Spanish club will pay the striker’s salaries.

The 26-year-old France forward has been a target of the Spanish club for several months.

He is believed to have indicated a willingness to take a pay cut to facilitate the deal’s completion.

Martial, who joined Monaco in 2015 for £36 million, has indicated to Ralf Rangnick that he desires a change of scenery.

That opinion has not changed despite the fact that Martial made his first appearance since interim United manager Rangnick took over when he came on as a substitute in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over West Ham.

Martial has appeared in 11 matches for United this season, scoring one goal against Everton on 2 October.

Sevilla are presently second in La Liga, four points behind champions Real Madrid with 16 games remaining.

Martial is one of several United players whose futures are unknown.
