Manchester United are close to a deal on a Martial loan deal

Manchester United are set to sanction the departure of missing striker Anthony Martial in January.

Sevilla have expressed interest in Martial’s services and appear to be getting a loan offer accepted by the 20-time English league champions for him.

However, according to the French outlet L’Equipe, the agreement is set to include no option to buy at the end of the loan period.

L’Equipe’s report indicates that United had already rejected a loan offer from Sevilla to Martial, but the two parties have since come closer to each other in what they want to get out of the deal.

They also refer to Man United boss Ralf Rangnick’s comments about the Frenchman’s future, who repeated the words of Martial’s agent earlier this month – they are that Martial wants to go to regular first team football.

Martial has struggled for playing time this season following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, but had already dropped down the rankings last season after a period of poor form paired with the arrival of Edinson Cavani.

The 26-year-old has played 268 times for United, scoring 79 goals and providing 50 assists.

The move certainly makes sense for both parties, where Martial wants to revive his career and Man United are able to free up salary and team space for the rest of the season and potentially thereafter.
