Manchester United fans react as Anthony Martial edges closer to Sevilla loan

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial is expected to arrive in Spain in the coming hours ahead of completing his loan move to Sevilla.

Sky Sports claim the La Liga side have agreed to pay Martial’s £240,000 per week wages, which was the stumbling block to the deal before.

The Guardian report Sevilla are paying a £5million loan fee to take him for the rest of the season.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano said that Sevilla’s director Monchi has been working on the deal for two months and there is no buy option included in the deal.

The French international told interim boss Ralf Rangnick last month that he wanted to leave Manchester United.

The 26-year-old made his first appearance for the German in Saturday’s 1-0 win against West Ham.

The former Monaco man played a key part in Marcus Rashford’s winner after combining with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani. It was his first appearance since 2 December.

But United’s number nine is set for a move to Julen Lopetegui’s side, who are in the midst of a title race with Real Madrid.

Sevilla are currently four points behind Los Blancos with 16 La Liga games remaining. However, the Frenchman won’t be playing Champions League football next month as Sevilla didn’t qualify from their group and instead dropped down to the Europa League.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has tipped Martial to make an “instant impact” in a side that “needs refreshing”, due to several players frequently missing games.
