Spanish side Sevilla will not look to extend Anthony Martial’s stay at the club beyond this summer, according to a report on Daily Mail.

Martial joined Sevilla on loan until the end of the season after falling down the pecking order at Manchester United.

Martial made a bright start to life in Spain, scoring in the Europa League against Dinamo Zagreb last month.

However, after just four appearances, he suffered an injury setback that has forced him to sit out the side’s last three matches.

Despite his limited game time so far, Sevilla appear to have made their mind up about the striker’s future at the club already.

“Sevilla won’t buy Martial even if they win the EuroMillions,” a source told Football Transfers via Daily Mail.

“They are happy with him but they won’t sign him permanently.

“Any further deal is not in their plans at all – just these six months to help them challenge Real Madrid for the title.”

It is understood that Martial’s wages would be an issue for Sevilla in the long-term, and this appears to have played a part in their decision.

Sevilla currently pay all of Martial’s salary, and would not be able to continue to do this moving forward unless they sold some of their star players.
