Manchester United star Anthony Martial slept with a model at a cheap Paris hotel while his girlfriend was pregnant, it has been alleged.
The French forward is reported to have taken Malika Semichi to the £70-a-night Hotel du Midi in Paris in July, after he was left out of France’s triumphant World Cup squad.
His girlfriend Melanie da Cruz was expecting his second child – later named Swan – at the time of the alleged night with the model.
Semichi, a 20-year-old model. told the Daily Star Sunday: ‘I have to say I was surprised when he told me which hotel he had picked.
‘It wasn’t the nicest and was a bit rundown and cheap, especially seeing as he’s used to much nicer hotels.
‘But I knew he had a girlfriend so presumed it was because he didn’t want anyone to see us together.’
The pair had reportedly met in a Paris nightclub called Hobo, before exchanging messages in which Martial is said to have called her his ‘second girlfriend’.
Martial split from Samantha Jacquelinet, the mother of his first child, in 2016 when he began his relationship with Melanie.
Samantha said her relationship with the forward had fallen after his £58million transfer to Old Trafford from Monaco.
Martial, who did not play in France’s victorious World Cup squad left United’s summer tour of the United States, to be with his girlfriend for the birth.
His failure to return from Europe afterwards vexed United’s then-manager Jose Mourinho who said he ‘should be here’.
Martial hit back at his manager on social media saying: ‘Sorry but my family will always come first’.
The 23-year-old has been one of the stars of United’s revival in form since Mourinho was sacked in December and replaced by club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He scored on Saturday in a 3-0 win over Premier League strugglers Fulham, bringing their unbeaten run under Solskjaer to 11 games.
