Martial made just four starts in all competitions for Manchester United this season and is hoping to get more minutes in Spain to put himself in a better place to secure a position in France’s World Cup squad later this year.

Sevilla will pay €6 million of Martial’s salary for the next six months, with Martial opting to take a pay cut on the rest of his wages to facilitate the move.

Sevilla also convinced Man Utd to forgo a loan fee and the deal does not include an option to buy on a permanent transfer.

However, if all three parties are interested in the summer, there is a chance that the deal could be extended for a second season.



The move gives Martial a chance to prove his quality, having fallen out of the picture at Man Utd.

The 26-year-old has only started two Premier League games this season and was the subject of controversy in recent weeks.

Although the incident was later described as a “misunderstanding” between Ralf Rangnick and Martial, the German manager declared the player had refused to be part of the matchday squad against Aston Villa several weeks back.

Martial has made 269 appearances for Man Utd, scoring 79 goals since joining the club from Monaco in 2015.
