Sevilla haven’t yet given up on signing Anthony Martial before the end of January, reports Marca on Monday.
The La Liga side have been interested in the Frenchman for much of the window, making efforts to get him away from Old Trafford. Manchester United have been asking for the club to cover the striker’s wages, and also to pay a loan fee, something considered too much by Monchi and the others in charge of transfers at the Spanish side.
Nevertheless, Marca say Martial remains the priority signing for the club, with a week left in the winter market. Sevilla want to overcome the ‘enormous difficulties’ they face, which will be Manchester United’s demands for the deal, and get a transfer done.
They still believe they have Martial’s desire in their favour, and that’s seen him turn down options to move to a Premier League club, with multiple sides named in recent weeks.
Martial returned to action for Manchester United at the weekend, and played a part as the club secured a late winner against West Ham United. Whether that means he could stay and become a meaningful part of Ralf Rangnick’s plans remains to be seen, with Sevilla clearly hoping otherwise.
