He claims the move for the Frenchman is a ‘done deal’ and Martial saw Sevilla as his preferred team over others interested.

The Italian journalist adds that the 26-year-old will fly to Spain after accepting the loan and that Sevilla will cover the player’s wages.

The club’s director of football has been ‘working on’ this deal for two months according to Romano and there will be no option to buy Martial after June.

The French international has wanted to leave United during the January transfer window due to his lack of playing time, with his agent Philippe Lamboley telling Sky Sports last month: "Anthony wishes to leave the club in January.

"He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon."

The 26-year-old made what could be his final United appearance during the 1-0 win over West Ham United at the weekend, and played part in the late goal that moved Ralf Rangnick’s side up to fourth in the Premier League.

Since his arrival to Old Trafford from Monaco in 2015, Martial has made 269 appearances for the club, scoring 79 goals and assisting his teammates on 50 occasions.

His contract at United runs until the summer of 2024, with an option for a further year if the club wish to extend.

The French international will be hoping to have a successful spell in Spain’s top flight in order to persuade his national team manager Didier Deschamps to select him for his 2022 World Cup squad.
