Anthony Martial pictured in Spain ahead of joining Sevilla on loan

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has touched down in Spain ahead of his impending loan move to Sevilla for the remainder of the season.

The La Liga giants have agreed to play the Frenchman’s £240,000-per-week wages, but there is no buy option included in the deal.

United’s number nine made his first appearance under Ralf Rangnick after coming off the bench in Saturday’s 1-0 win against West Ham.

The former Monaco man combined with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani in the build-up to Marcus Rashford’s 93rd-minute winner.


The 26-year-old was embraced by the likes of Rangnick, Donny van de Beek, Anthony Elanga and Jesse Lingard after the final whistle.

The French international will be joining a Sevilla side who sit second in La Liga, four points behind the leaders Real Madrid.

But he won’t be playing in the Champions League as Julen Lopetegui’s side only managed to finish third in their group and therefore dropped down to the Europa League.

Anthony Martial will be hoping to secure regular first team football in Spain after rapidly falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman has only scored one goal all season and that came against Everton in October. He only made two Premier League starts all season.

He has been pictured at the Sevilla airport today where he was greeted by the Spanish side’s sporting director Monchi.
