Confirmed: Anthony Martial joins Sevilla on loan from Manchester United

The Frenchman will spend the remainder of the season in Spain.

Anthony Martial has joined Sevilla on loan from Manchester United until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The Frenchman has made no secret of his desire to leave the Red Devils and joins a side currently second in La Liga, four points behind Real Madrid.

The deal was announced on Tuesday night, with ManchesterWorld understanding Sevilla will pay all of the attacker’s wages, while there is no loan fee for the move.

Martial also posted a picture on social media in a Sevilla kit on Tuesday, with the caption ‘new’ chapter’.

The club’s official website stated they have ‘completed a major signing and have strengthened their attacking options, with the player able to play either as a striker or on either flank, preferably on the left, where he can cut inside’.

Martial has made just 11 appearances for United in the first half of the campiagn, with only four starts so far this term.

The 26-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular position in the Red Devils team with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani overtaking him in the pecking order for the centre-forward role.

Martial scored 23 goals in all competitions while playing in that position in the 2019/20 campaign, but a mixture of poor form, injuries, competition and lack of work rate have seen his game time limited in the past season and a half.

The former Monaco man will wear the No.22 shirt at Sevilla.

That is unlikely to be the end of the transfer activity at United this window, with Jesse Lingard and Donny Van de Beek heavily linked with loan moves away from the club ahead of Monday’s deadline.
