Anthony Martial Not Interested in Loan to English Clubs as He Seeks Move Away From Old Trafford

Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial has rejected Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United‘s offers of loan moves away from Manchester United┬ádespite his desire to leave, according to Fabrizio Romano. The Frenchman may want an Old Trafford exit, but he is unwilling to join other English sides, and will instead wait in the hope that other teams come forwards with proposals for him.

Anthony Martial Rejects Loan Moves Away From Old Trafford

Martial Looking to Leave United After Over Six Years at the Club

When Anthony Martial joined Manchester United in the summer of 2015, there was much excitement surrounding him. He was a teenager who had broken into the starting 11 at one of France’s best teams and appeared to have bags of potential. A Ballon D’Or clause was famously baked into his contract at the Theatre of Dreams.

Even after moving to Manchester, Martial continued to impress despite his youth, coming straight into a regular role in the Red Devils’ first team.

Over the years, however, the Frenchman has found it increasingly difficult to sustain his spot as a starter, and since the beginning of last season, he has been something of a rotation player.

This campaign, he has been unable to make an impact on the fate of his side after relatively few appearances and has understandably chosen to seek a new challenge after his long service at Old Trafford.

Many Options Abroad for Anthony Martial

While Martial is not currently interested in a domestic move, there is plenty of interest from overseas. Barcelona, Sevilla, and Juventus provide the most likely destinations for the 26-year-old at the moment. The difficulty will come in finding an agreement with United, as the Red Devils are looking for full wage coverage and a loan fee in order to let their man leave.

A player of Martial’s ability always has the potential to re-find form, and it is not at all outside the realm of possibility that he could prove himself a world-class talent in years to come.
