Martial completes Sevilla loan transfer after ‘taking pay cut’

Manchester United star Anthony Martial has ended his Old Trafford nightmare by completing a loan move to Sevilla.

The striker, 26, landed in Spain on Tuesday ahead of finalising a deal later in the day.

Martial had been keen to leave Old Trafford since holding talks with Ralf Rangnick about his future earlier this month.

And according to the Daily Mail, Sevilla offered United the £5million loan fee they were looking for.

Martial also accepted a wage cut to ensure the move happens but there is no option for Sevilla to sign him permanently.

The Frenchman completed his medical and was unveiled on Tuesday night.

United rejected approaches from Newcastle and Tottenham as Martial was keen to move abroad.

Sevilla are just four points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid.

And that means Martial, who became the world’s most expensive teenager when he moved to United from Monaco in 2015 in a deal worth up to £54m, will be able to fight for silverware for the remainder of the season.

Aiming for the title could help to bring out the best in the forward after gradually declining at Old Trafford – he has made just 11 appearances this season, scoring once.

Despite that several clubs were interested in his services, with Juventus said to be one of them.

His departure will likely be welcomed by Rangnick after Martial rejected his claim that the forward refused to travel for the Aston Villa match.
