Sevilla have confirmed the club won’t sign Anthony Martial on a permanent deal following a disappointing loan spell from Manchester United.
Martial signed on-loan for Sevilla during the January transfer window after falling out of favour at Old Trafford, with the France international having made just two Premier League starts across the first half of the campaign.
The move to Spain has failed to reignite his career however, and Martial has failed to score in nine La La appearances for Sevilla and just once in 12 across all competitions.
Sevilla have confirmed that Martial’s performances mean he will return to England when his loan expires this summer with the club’s president, Jose Castro, revealing the Spanish side have opted against making the move permanent.
“Anthony Martial will return to Man United,” Castro said, as per the Sun.
“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.”
