The France international is currently loaned to Sevilla, but the Red Devils must pay 60 per cent of the wages he receives at £240k a week. Which is consider a number that is not small at all.
However, the 26-year-old has been struggling with injuries. He has only played in eight La Liga games since moving to play in January. And still haven’t scored a goal in the league.
With a current contract that runs until 2024, if it expires, United will have to pay around £25 million, and the club are working on a solution as it is not in the club’s plans.
According to The Sun, United are willing to pay Martial 12 million pounds to allow the player to leave the club. This will allow players to find new clubs this summer.
Although the Red Devils will switch manager to Erik ten Hag next season, it looks like a move away from the club is more likely to stay.
United have been paying 60 per cent of his wages during his stay in southern Spain and the remaining two years on his contract would cost them the thick end of £25m.
But the board will hope that the Frenchman will agree to take half of his remaining terms in order to get him off the books as they look to rebuild the squad under new manager Erik ten Hag.
