Anthony Martial suffers blow in bid to escape Man Utd as Sevilla ‘have little room to increase transfer offer’


Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has reportedly suffered a setback in their quest to depart in January as Sevilla struggle to afford the Frenchman.

The 26-year-old has told interim boss Ralph Rangnick that he wants to leave Old Trafford next month in search of regular first-team football.

His agent has already made it clear that his client wants to move on after making just seven appearances in the Premier League in this period.

The former Monaco ace marshal has been the subject of a loan bid from Spanish side Sevilla, which is believed to have been turned down.

The LaLiga organization was only ready to pay half of their weekly salary, while they were not even ready to pay the loan fee.

And United are understood to only consider offers that cover his full wages, and are adamant that he should receive a fee for his temporary tenure.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Julan Lopetegui’s side has ‘little room’ to extend their offer to bring the player to Andalusia.

The club fear he may be pulled out of the deal to sign Martial as they seek to replace injured wingers Suso and Erik Lamela.

It has also been suggested that Sevilla would be ready to end their interest in the Les Blaes international and turn to Tottenham’s Steven Bergwijn.

Speaking last week, Rangnik sensationally asked Marshall to forget about leaving because there is no club for him.

He commented: “Yes, we spoke on Wednesday. We talked at length.

“He explained to me that he has been at Manchester United for seven years now and that he thinks it is the right time to go somewhere else, for a change.

“In a way it is understandable, I could have followed his thoughts but on the other hand, it is also important to look at the condition of the club.

“We have Covid times, we have three competitions in which we still have high ambitions.

“I told him that as long as there is no club showing interest in him, and it should not only be in the interest of the player, it should also be in the interest of the club.

“As far as I know, there has been no offer from any other club and as long as there is, it will remain so.”
