Anthony Martial in Sevilla colours, given number 22

Anthony Martial has now been snapped in his new Sevilla kit for the first time.

After a fallout with Ralf Rangnick, the writing felt on the wall for Anthony Martial. It always looked like the Frenchman would leave in some capacity this month.

In the end, a loan move to Sevilla would come to the fore, with Martial playing under a manager who certainly plays to his strengths.

With these loan deals, it’s all about the playing time. Martial simply has to be starting week-in-week-out to allow the former AS Monaco star to get back to his best. Will that happen? Only time will tell.

This deal has moved quickly, with Martial already pictured in his new kit, while being given his new jersey number of 22.

I’d love to say he looks all-smiles but he really doesn’t! That’s just Martial, though. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him with a beaming grin on his face!

Jokes aside, this is a fantastic move for all involved. Martial will hopefully be playing on a regular basis, United are getting rid of an unhappy player (albeit only temporarily).

The question about what’ll happen in the long term now comes to the fore. Does Martial have a realistic chance at forcing his way back into United’s plans? Well, some of that is out of his control as we’re unsure as to who the new permanent manager will be.

All Martial can do is play his best football for Sevilla over the next four or five months, then over the summer, this will all play out.
