After finally putting together an offer to Manchester United, Sevilla have closed on a loan deal for Anthony Martial, with the English club having accepted the proposal made by Monchi on Monday.
Noises coming out of Manchester United have been mixed, with Ralf Rangnick confirming the player wanted to leave.
Whilst the technical department have maintained that they wouldn’t want to merely give Martial away.
According to ESPN, the negotiations have been positive over the weekend, despite the French forward playing a part in United’s clash with West Ham United on Saturday.
And the player himself had made clear to the Andalusian club that he only wanted to join them.
This determination to force through a move has seen Martial lower his salary demands, and as MARCA revealed earlier on Monday, Monchi is preparing to unveil his gift to Julen Lopetegui.
However, Monday’s development will mean Martial will definitively spend the second half of the 2021/22 season with Sevilla and under Lopetegui’s stewardship.
Although rather curiously the Spanish coach has been linked with the vacant United job in the summer.
The French forward is expected to travel to Andalusia in the coming hours and he will be available to train with his new team on Thursday, when Los Rojiblancos return to work.
Between five and six million euros must be paid by the Seville club for the four-month loan.
Which is just less than half the salary he was due to receive in Manchester, with no loan fee being paid.
Martial just landed in Sevilla to complete his transfer from Manchester United.
