Manchester United are considering paying Anthony Martial as much as £12m in order to get him off their books this summer.

The Frenchman is currently on loan at Sevilla after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford, although the short-term deal has not been going particularly well.

The 26-year-old has struggled with injuries and made just eight La Liga appearances since arriving in January and he has not scored in the league.

The forward has managed one goal in three Europa League appearances, but it has been far from the impact that Sevilla bosses wanted from the France international.

However, a permanent move to the club has not been ruled out and Manchester United are keen to get rid of him to Sevilla or anyone else who might take him off their hands.

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

The Red Devils are paying 60 per cent of his wages while he is at Sevilla, so he remains a huge outlay for the club even when he isn’t there.

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

The report states that United would be happy to hand Martial £12m if it meant he found a new club at the end of the season.

The former Monaco striker could 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 sporting director Monchi hinted that 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, just six or seven million,’

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

‘I’m not closing the door on his continuity although there’s a lot to see and discuss with the player at the end of the season.’
