Anthony Martial may have to accept a pay cut for the Sevilla loan


Manchester United have rejected Sevilla’s opening offer for a loan to Anthony Martial and tell the player that he may have to accept a pay cut for the proposed deal to go through.

Martial wants to leave United almost seven years after joining Old Trafford, after seeing his chances of play diminish over the past 18 months.

Both the player’s agent and United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick have spoken publicly about the situation and confirmed his desire to move on.

“We talked for a long time and he explained to me that he has been at Manchester United for the last seven years and he feels it is the right time for a change, to go elsewhere,” said Rangnick.

But the United manager has insisted that Martial will only be allowed to leave on the club’s terms: “It should not only be in the player’s interest, it should also be in the club’s interest.”

90min revealed just before Christmas that Martial is keen to join Sevilla, although the exact economy of the proposed loan agreement still proves to be the problematic point right now.

90min understands that United are prepared to cover part of Martial’s salaries, which could come close to £ 250,000 with supplements. Sevilla is not far from matching what United would put in, but that means that the Frenchman’s salary is still only covered by about 70% of the current figures.

Sevilla may need to increase their offer, or United are alternatively happy that Martial waives part of their salary to make a deal possible.

Even though the opening loan offer has been rejected, talks are still open for Sevilla to return to the table. It is important for them to reach an early agreement as they will soon lose Morocco international Youssef En-Nesyri and Munir to the Africa Cup of Nations.
