The French striker has left Man Utd and joined Sevilla on a loan contract until the end of the season.
Anthony Martial has officially signed a contract to join Sevilla. The 26-year-old striker will play for the Andalusian team for the rest of the 2021/22 season. Martial had previously met directly with coach Ralf Rangnick, expressed his desire to leave and was approved.
The French star joined the Red Devils in 2015. He made a total of 269 appearances for Man Utd, scoring 79 goals, helping the club win the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League. Martial suddenly dropped in the last campaign. In this season, things did not show any signs of improvement, making him unappreciated. The 26-year-old striker has only had 2 starts in the Premier League.
Rashford sends message to Martial.
After Martial’s move to Sevilla was completed, Marcus Rasford posted on his personal page to the French striker: “Good luck, my brother,” with a heart symbol.
It is known that Sevilla will have to spend a total of 6 million euros (loan fee + salary) to have Martial’s service. However, Man Utd did not put a permanent purchase point in the contract. So after the loan term expires, the striker born in 1995 will have to return to Old Trafford.
Martial’s presence is expected to strengthen the attack power for Sevilla. Currently, the Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium team is a strong candidate for the La Liga championship, when only 4 points behind Real Madrid’s first place.
