[골닷컴] Reporter Man-seong Han = Sevilla, who are trying to sign Manchester United striker Anthony Martial (26), have encountered a difficult situation. Sevilla, who were looking to sign Marshall on loan, found it difficult to meet his weekly wage.
Marshall has already requested a transfer from Manchester United this winter. Martial, who moved to Manchester United in 2015 with high expectations, has shaken his position in the team this season as the club signed Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo. This season he has only scored one goal in the Premier League. Manchester United interim manager Ralph Langnick admitted that he had already spoken to Marshall and expressed his desire to leave the team and take on new challenges. However, coach Rangnick suggested the condition that “the transfer should be beneficial to the club”.
From the beginning of this month, the club strongly linked to the signing of Marshall is Sevilla. According to British TV ‘Sky Sports’ recently, Marshall is also attracted to Spain’s La Liga stage. Sevilla, who have developed sympathy with Marshall, have recently contacted United and offered to sign him on loan until next summer.
However, the Daily Mail reported on the 28th (local time) that Manchester United rejected the offer to sign Marshall on loan from Sevilla. The biggest reason is the loan transfer conditions. Marshall currently earns around £200,000 a week at United. Sevilla decided that it would be difficult to bear 100% of this. Because of this, Sevilla have offered to sign him on loan on condition that he pays only a portion of Marshall’s weekly salary. Looking forward to parting with Martial, United have maintained their stance that they cannot partially pay his weekly salary for six months.
Another problem is the fact that Sevilla have offered to sign Marshall on loan and have not included a clause on a full move for him next summer. Manchester United have a contract with Marshall until 2024. However, United do not plan to consider a scenario in which Marshall will return if he leaves the club on a loan or a full transfer this winter. If Sevilla have no plans to sign Martial on loan, there is virtually no merit for United to accept the offer.
Manchester United invested about 60 million pounds (about 100 billion won) in a basic transfer fee to sign Marshall from AS Monaco in 2015. Sevilla is still the most likely candidate for Marshall’s destination, but according to local media, Juventus and Barcelona are also keeping an eye on him.
