'Deal agreed' for Man Utd star's exit

English Premier League

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a deal to part ways with one of their stars this month. 

Earlier this season, interim manager Ralf Rangnick confirmed that Anthony Martial wanted to leave Old Trafford in search of more first-team action.   

The French forward was once a vital cog in the United attack during Ole Gunner Solskjaer's reign, but the signings of Edinson Cavani, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho have led to him dropping down the pecking order at the club. 

It now appears that the 26-year-old will get his desired move away, with transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reporting that the Red Devils and Sevilla have now reached an agreement in negotiations for the forward. 

Julen Lopetegui's side have also reportedly agreed to pay Martial's full salary for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign, something that was said to have initially been a sticking point in talks.

Despite reported interest from Juventus and Barcelona, the Frenchman is believed to be only interested in a move to the LaLiga club as he seemingly believes that is where he will play most.   

With the 2022 FIFA World Cup coming up, the 2015 Golden Boy award winner will be eyeing a chance to make France's final squad for the tournament after missing out on Les Bleus' 2018 triumph.
