Manchester United’s Anthony Martial has reportedly been dumped by his wife
The French striker has struggled to find any form on a loan at Spanish club Sevilla whom he joined for the remainder of the season in January from Manchester United. A report in the Daily Star now claims that Martial has been dumped by his wife Melanie Da Cruz.
Martial’s wife Da Cruz – a French TV star who has a four-year-old child Swan with the footballer – made an Instagram post saying “love wasn’t enough”. Posting in French, she spoke of her “pain” and said: “Sometimes to win a race you have to stop running.”
The report cites a source close to the couple as stating: “Things aren’t going brilliantly for Martial on the pitch and it looks like life at home has been rocky too. Melanie’s statement came as a shock to her fans and it’s probably the icing on the cake after a bad few months for Anthony. They’ve had their struggles. All they care about going forward is the well-being of their son and raising him amicably.”
The two met in 2016 when Martial split with Samantha Jacquelinet, with whom he has two children. In 2019, it was reported that Martial had an affair with French model Malika Semichi, when Da Cruz was heavily pregnant.
