The future of Anthony Martial has been one of the most hotly debated topics at Old Trafford this month. After Ralf Rangnick claimed Martial had refused to play, the 26-year-old had a public confrontation with him.
Martial responded on social media, claiming that he has never refused to wear the club’s colors. Within a week, the issue was over, and Martial was reintroduced into the matchday teams.
However, it was unclear whether he would stay at the club past January 31.
Sevilla had established the strongest contacts with a possible loan deal. United’s hefty demands, on the other hand, seem to have dissuaded the Spanish side.
United demanded that the buying club pay the forward’s wages in full, as well as a substantial loan fee.

Manchester United is pushing hard for a Martial bargain.
Rangnick indicated that the club was willing to sanction a move, but only if the terms were favorable to United.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Martial’s loan move to Seville is now a done thing. After releasing a video of Martial arriving in Seville, the Italian tweeted that the switch was ‘confirmed.’
The potential move’s details were announced earlier on Tuesday, and they make excellent reading for United’s finance department.
According to the Daily Mail, Sevilla proposed a £5 million loan fee in response to Manchester United’s request. Furthermore, according to Romano, Sevilla has volunteered to pay his wages until June.
That decision was made easier by the fact that Martial apparently agreed to take a pay reduction to facilitate the move.
The change is not likely to include a purchase option. As a result, United will be hoping that Martial’s time in Spain will be similar to Jesse Lingard’s at West Ham last year.
