Manchester United are considering paying Anthony Martial as much as £ 12 million to get him out of their books this summer.

The Frenchman is currently on loan to Sevilla after falling into the pickaxe at Old Trafford, although the short-term deal has not gone very well.

The 26-year-old has struggled with injuries and has only played eight La Liga matches since arriving in January, and he has not scored in the league.

The striker has scored one goal in three Europa League matches, but it has been far from the effect that Sevilla’s bosses wanted from the French national team player.

However, a permanent transfer to the club is not out of the question and Manchester United are eager to get rid of him to Sevilla or anyone else who can take him from their hands.

Martial is still under contract until 2024 and is reportedly on a salary of around £ 240,000 a week at Manchester United.

The Red Devils pay 60 percent of his salary while he is in Sevilla, so he is still a big outlay for the club, even when he is not there.

The Sun reports they will be happy to pay him to leave Old Trafford this summer, with his salary for the next two years costing United close to £ 25m.

The report says United would be happy to give Martial £ 12million if it meant he finds a new club at the end of the season.

The former Monaco striker may still have a future at United if new manager Erik ten Hag decides he sees something in him, but an exit seems much more likely if a club is willing to offer him what he wants.

Sevilla’s sporting director Monchi hinted he could have a future with the club, telling Radio Sevilla: “His transfer was cheaper than you think, but it’s still a big bet, only six or seven million,”

‘Unfortunately, it is difficult to analyze Martial’s performance when he was injured and now he is injured again.

“I do not close the door on his continuity, although there is a lot to see and discuss with the player at the end of the season.”
