Man Utd slap staggering high loan fee on Anthony Martial despite miserable form

2 min read

Anthony Martial is looking to leave Manchester United, but the club has slapped a staggering high loan fee despite his miserable form.

The potential suitors such as Newcastle and Juventus are being put off by the exorbitant asking price for the Frenchman

Martial has yet to make an appearance for United since Ralf Rangnick took over as temporary manager, however he was listed on the bench for Wednesday’s Premier League match against Brentford.

Injury and his desire to leave Old Trafford following a seven-year tenure in which he failed to live up to his £58 million transfer tag led to the Frenchman’s absence.

Despite being given opportunities to perform by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he has failed to impress this season, scoring just one goal in 359 minutes of action.

Antony Martial requested a transfer after seeing little evidence that he might become a regular starter under Rangnick.

However, considering his recent form, United’s astronomically high asking price is preventing him from leaving.

United is reportedly charging a loan fee of roughly £5 million for the attacker, according to Sport Mediaset via Football Italia.

Given Martial’s status at United and the fact that he will only be at his loan club for five months, that figure is described as “incredible.”

United would also require a loan club to cover Martial’s entire salary, which would cost another £5 million.

That would increase the total fee to almost £10 million, an incredible sum for a player who has failed miserably to impress.

The hefty demands appear to be sabotaging United’s efforts to sell him, with Juventus general manager Maurizio Arrivabene stating emphatically that his club would not sign Martial for that fee.

After Sevilla’s proposal for Martial was rejected, another possible suitor in Newcastle is believed to have ‘balked’ at United’s asking price, leaving Martial with few options.
