Anthony Martial is seriously considering a loan move to Sevilla in January, according to his agent.

Phillipe Lamboley, the player’s representative, had this to say:

“We’re studying the Sevilla option very closely. Sevilla is a very good club, in a good position in La Liga. They’re in the Champions League and have a great coach. That’s what I can say.”

 

Tough second season

Martial has found his second season tough, losing his regular place to the likes of Mata and Mkhitaryan, as manager Jose Mourinho looks to implement a policy of rotation.

As such the Frenchman has not been able to replicate the model of consistency he demonstrated during his break-out season.

 

Still seen as an integral part of the club’s future

Mourinho, speaking in a press conference, reassured the United faithful on the forward’s relevance to the club’s future, but also said he should look to follow the example of Mkhitaryan who has admirably worked his way back into the Red Devils’ starting team.

It’s clear Mourinho sees Martial as an integral part of United’s future, but a loan-move would guarantee 90 minutes a week and aid the young star’s development; still only aged 21, he has a veneer of composure and maturity that requires substantiating at the top level.
