Manchester United Swiftly Reject Loan Bid For Anthony Martial, Offer Only Covered Half Of His Wages

It has emerged that Manchester United have rejected a loan offer for Anthony Martial.

On Tuesday morning, La Liga side Sevilla proposed a straight loan move for the out of favour Frenchman; an offer that did not include an option to buy clause.

Hours later and United have reportedly rejected the bid for Martial, who has only scored two goals in 13 appearances for club and country this season.

It is believed Sevilla's offer only covered half of his wages at Old Trafford, says ESPN correspondant Rob Dawson, who claims the Premier League club will only consider offers that cover all wages as well as a loan fee.

In fact, Manchester United are happy to keep him in January if those conditions aren't met.

Martial earns £250,000-a-week after signing a contract extension in January 2019, according to Sky Sports.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick spoke about Martial's future before the club's 1-1 draw against Newcastle on Monday night.

He confirmed that the 26-year-old former Lyon striker wants to leave but said he will not be sold unless an acceptable offer is made.

Rangnick said: “Yes we spoke yesterday at length, he explained to me he’s been here seven years and he feels it’s the right time for a change.

"In a way it’s understandable. But it’s also important to see the situation of the club – Covid, three competitions, wanting to be successful.

“I told him as long as there is no club showing interest, so far there is no offer from any other club, while this is the case he will stay.”

Martial joined the ranks at Old Trafford in 2015 from AS Monaco for a reported £36 million rising to £58 million.

He has scored 56 goals in 174 Premier League appearances for the club but after making 22 appearances in England's top flight last season, he has struggled for game time in recent months.
