Sevilla consider signing Manchester United star Anthony Martial on a permanent transfer

According to the Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo (h/t The Sun), Sevilla are considering the prospect of signing Manchester United star Anthony Martial on a permanent transfer this summer. The forward has moved to Spain on a loan deal for the rest of this season, and it seems that he could be with them in the long term future as well.

The Spanish side are open to taking Martial permanently from Man United in the summer transfer window. However, they would only entertain that offer if the attacker is willing to reduce his wages to facilitate a move. He earns a salary of around £240,000-a-week which does not match his output as of now.

Julen Lopetegui’s side are paying only 40 percent of those wages right now, which is why they want the Frenchman to accept a lower salary in case of a permanent move. Incoming boss Erik ten Hag has no plans for the winger in his squad for the next season, so a transfer elsewhere could be a possibility anyway.

Summer exit for Martial?

It remains to be seen if the 26-year-old would entertain a wage cut to facilitate a potential permanent move to the La Liga side this summer. Since it is claimed that he is not in the plans of Ten Hag, it would be wise for him to accept that offer to kickstart his stagnated career once again.

The Red Devils ace has endured a mixed time with the Andalusians, but he has shown flashes of promise despite his struggles. Perhaps, that could explain why they are not giving up on the forward and are seemingly looking to give him opportunities moving forward.

What’s more, it is stated that the Manchester club are open to tearing up the France international’s contract if he reaches an agreement with Sevilla. With two more years left in his current deal, the English side could be ready to take that stance to reduce the load on their wage bill.

Since Lopetegui’s side would not have to pay a transfer fee in such a case, we could hope that there would be more leeway for them to reach an agreement on a wage cut. After all, that could make things much easier for them to offer a reduced offer to Martial.

Then again, we should reconsider our stance since it would be best to earn even a small sum in transfer fees. We would need funds to rebuild our squad under Ten Hag, so letting Martial depart for free may not be in our best interests.

Then again, it depends upon how this situation would unravel in the future. Perhaps, the club would not want to be weighed down by Martial’s wages in the future as well. That could explain why they could be open to rescinding his contract. In any case, let’s wait and see what stance would he take regarding a reduced salary.
