Man Utd slap staggering loan fee on Anthony Martial despite flop's miserable form
Ralf Rangnick took interim charge of the team, though he was named on the bench for their Premier League trip to Brentford on Wednesday.The Frenchman’s exclusion has been as a result of both injuries and his desire to leave Old Trafford after a seven-year spell in which he has failed to live up to his £58million transfer fee.He continued to flop this season, despite being handed opportunities to impress by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring just one goal in the 359 minutes he has played.With little sign that he can become a regular starter under Rangnick, Martial made the decision to request a transfer.But he is currently being prevented from leaving by United’s remarkably high asking price considering his form in recent seasons.According to Sport Mediaset, via Football Italia, United are charging a loan fee of around £5m for the attacker.That price is described as being ‘extraordinary’ considering Martial’s situation at United and the fact he will only be at his loan club for five months.Should Manchester United reduce their asking price to allow Anthony Martial to leave? Let us know in the comments section...It is also stated that United would be expecting a loan club to pay Martial’s wages in full, which would cost another £5m.That would bring the total fee to the region of £10m, an astonishing price for a player who has failed so badly to impress.The high demands look set to scupper United’s attempts to move him on, with Juventus general manager Maurizio Arrivabene making it clear his club would not be signing Martial for that price.Another potential suitor in Newcastle are also said to have ‘baulked’ at United’s asking price, leaving Martial with few destinations after Sevilla’s bid for him was rejected.
