He’s not worth the money – La Liga club confirm they won’t sign Manchester United star

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial will return to Manchester United this summer after Sevilla confirmed they won’t sign the France international on a permanent deal.

The striker joined Julen Lopetegui’s squad on loan during the January transfer window but scored just once during his loan spell with the Spanish side.

He missed six games through injury and was even jeered by the Sevilla supporters in a miserable loan spell in Spain.

Sevilla have confirmed they will not be considering a permanent deal for Martial when his loan deal expires this summer.

Club president Jose Castro said: “Anthony Martial will return to Man United.

“We spent important money on him but it didn’t work.

“Also, he had injuries and we’re not going to buy him on a permanent deal.”

The LaLiga side, who finished in fourth position, are believed to be paying 40 per cent of Martial’s £240,000-a-week wages.

That is £96,000 a week, for what has been little return this season.

The 26-year-old joined United in 2015 for £36m from Monaco, becoming British Football’s most expensive teenager.

He still has two more years left on his lucrative contract at Old Trafford.
