“Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has joined Sevilla FC on loan for the remainder of the 2021-22 season,” read a statement on Man United’s official website.

“The Frenchman completed a medical in Andalusia, after the two clubs agreed terms for his temporary transfer. Everyone at the club wishes Anthony the best of luck for his time at Sevilla.”

French forward could make his debut for Sevilla, who currently sit second in the Spanish top-tier, when they face Osasuna on February 5.
