A full breakdown of the terms of Manchester United star Anthony Martial’s imminent move to Sevilla has been provided on Monday evening.
Speculation surrounding the future of French international Martial has of course been rampant across the month to date, after the attacker’s agent confirmed his desire to seek out a new club, amid a difficult campaign to date at Old Trafford.
A potential twist in the tale was forthcoming over the weekend, however, when the 26-year-old was surprisingly introduced off the bench late in United’s Premier League showdown with West Ham.
Martial even went on to play a key role in the Red Devils’ last-gasp winner:

But, as confirmed by a host of reliable sources late on Monday, the former AS Monaco talent is nevertheless indeed on the verge of a departure from Manchester.
As per transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, Martial is set to join Spanish outfit Sevilla on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
The transfer is expected to be completed over the next couple of days, with the Man United transfer team happy with the terms on offer. These come in the form of a 6 million euro Sevilla outlet, covering the combined expenses of a loan fee, and Martial’s salary.
Significantly, it is also confirmed that the La Liga high-flyers will not have the option to make their new loan addition’s signing permanent come the summer.
Anthony Martial will fly to Sevilla on Tuesday with his agent Philippe Lamboley. Deal completed with Man United – Sevilla will pay around €6m package [salary and fee] for six month loan. 🛩🤝 #Martial

Lingard to follow?
Martial may not be the only member of interim boss Ralf Rangnick’s bloated Manchester United squad to seal a departure from the club before the January transfer window slams shut.
This comes with Jesse Lingard too inching towards an exit, amid mounting interest on the part of newly-minted Newcastle United.
In fact, earlier today, it was reported that the Magpies are ‘confident’ that a deal for Lingard will be struck over the coming 48 hours, with the midfielder himself not opposed to the prospect of making the move to St. James’ Park on a permanent basis in the summer.
Newcastle are confident of signing Jesse Lingard in the next 48 hours. Looks like a loan deal. Told Lingard isn’t against a permanent move to SJP but wants game time first and then to assess options.
