Anthony Martial appears to be a man in demand in the January transfer window, but Manchester United are yet to receive a good enough offer to sanction his exit.

Sevilla have been the only club to formally approach United to sign the Frenchman, but the La Liga outfit had their bid rejected before the new year. As per Sky Sports, Sevilla were looking for a straight loan deal until the end of the season, and only proposed to cover half of Martial’s wages.

The 26-year-old, however, has an agreement with them and has already spoken with manager Julen Lopetegui, reports French outlet TF1.

Sevilla and United are still negotiating, but the Spanish side remain reluctant to meet the Red Devils’ demands. Now, they have been joined in the race by Barcelona and Juventus. Both clubs have reportedly been in touch with the striker.

Alvaro Morata’s future might dictate Martial’s next destination. Xavi is keen to sign the Spaniard, but the failure to land his preferred target could see Barca increase their efforts to sign the France international.

Further, Martial could be in line to replace Morata at Juventus, if the Spanish forward secures his return to La Liga.

At this stage, it’s unclear where the former Monaco star will end up, but he’s certain to leave Old Trafford in the coming weeks.
