Report: Sevilla interested in Martial loan

Manchester United are reportedly set to reject a bid from Spanish outfit Sevilla to sign out-of-favour striker Anthony Martial on loan in January.

Martial is undoubtedly growing frustrated at his lack of opportunities at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho, although the Portuguese is said to be reluctant to let the France international leave mid-season.

According to a report published by the Daily Mail, Sevilla made contact with the player's agent with regards a potential loan move in January.

The Red and Whites are currently third in La Liga and also have Manchester City's Samir Nasri on loan.

Yet, it appears a deal won't take place for the 21-year-old to move to Spain as Mourinho is against it. In addition, France manager Didier Deschamps is also said to prefer him to stay with the Red Devils.

With West Ham United also reportedly taking an interest in the attacker, it appears the English giants are going to stand their ground and not allow him to leave. The same is said to be true for those clubs inquiring about the availability of Marcus Rashford on loan.

Martial has made 17 appearances and scored four goals in 2016/17 for the 20-time Premier League champions.
