Manchester United have rejected a loan proposal from Sevilla for wantaway forward Anthony Martial, Goal reports.
The Frenchman has indicated his desire to leave the club amid the lack of regular first-team football this season.
Sevilla have been heavily linked with him lately, and it is now claimed that the La Liga club have made a loan approach.
However, the offer has been rejected by United, who are undecided over the possibility of Martial leaving on loan.
United would ideally want his wages to be paid in full while securing a loan fee. Sevilla are unlikely to pay the sum.
The Spanish outfit’s recent offer proposed to meet only half of Martial’s wages for the remainder of the season.
Rangnick recently confirmed that Martial wants to leave. There were no surprises when he was left out of the matchday squad yesterday.
Still, the club’s hierarchy are unlikely to offload him cheaply, and any interested teams must meet their valuation for his services.
The Frenchman currently earns £250,000-per-week after his extension in 2019. There are very few clubs that could meet his salary package.
The most likely solution could be a permanent transfer away from United next month. Martial may have to accept a significant pay-cut.
The Blaugrana are on the cusp of landing Manchester City’s Ferran Torres, and prefer a cost-cut option to bolster the centre-forward department.
Edinson Cavani is open to a potential January move to Camp Nou. The Uruguayan could seek to terminate his United contract in the near future.
If Cavani leaves, there is a high possibility that Martial could stay with United for the rest of the campaign before a possible summer exit.
