Manchester United are in talks to loan Anthony Martial to Sevilla and Jesse Lingard to Newcastle United, sources have told ESPN.

Newcastle are waiting to hear if United will sanction a six-month loan move for Lingard. They are ready to pay over £5m to complete the deal but have yet to get the green light from Old Trafford.

Sevilla, meanwhile, are increasingly confident they will find a deal for Martial, with ESPN sources in Spain claiming a deal may have already been agreed between the two clubs and personal terms agreed. with the French international.

Martial made his first appearance under caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick in the 1-0 win over West Ham on Saturday, playing a key role in Marcus Rashford’s stoppage-time winner.

His second-half introduction was booed by some United fans following Rangnick’s claim the 26-year-old refused to travel for the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa – which Martial denied.

Lingard, who will be a free agent this summer, has only started once under Rangnick and is eager to leave to find regular first-team football. Sources have told ESPN that both Tottenham and West Ham have had their applications rejected this month because United are unwilling to strengthen clubs also competing for a top four spot.

Lingard traveled to Dubai to train at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex during the Premier League winter break. The Newcastle squad are currently attending a hot weather training camp in Saudi Arabia.

Sources have told ESPN that Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is keen to line up a loan move for disgraced Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli if a deal for Lingard does not materialize.

United remain hesitant to allow too many players to leave in January ahead of a busy second half of the season competing in three competitions, not least due to the continued threat of Covid.
