The Frenchman has struggled at Old Trafford in recent times, and it makes sense that he could soon be on his way out of the club, though it seems he doesn’t want to join another Premier League team.
Instead, it looks like Martial’s preference is to move abroad, leaving him with three potential loan destinations this January.
According to Fabrizio Romano in the tweet below, those three clubs are Barcelona, Sevilla and Juventus, with Man Utd looking for a loan fee and for the player’s full salary to be covered…

Martial could have been a decent signing for Newcastle in particular as they look to rebuild under their new owners, though it’s perhaps not surprising that he wasn’t keen on a team currently in a relegation battle.

Martial looked an exciting youngster when he first joined United earlier in his career, but it just hasn’t worked out for him, and in truth he now looks like a risky signing for big clubs like Barca and Juve, though it will be interesting to see if he can revive his career.
