The £175,000 a-week star, who last week signed a new five-year deal with Manchester United, paid just £70 for a night at the two-star pad with French beauty Malika Semichi.

Martial booked the room at the Hotel du Midi near the Gare de Lyon train station in Paris last July.

He had met Malika, 20, at a nightclub a week earlier.

At the time his girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz was heavily pregnant with their son Swan, who was born later that month.

Mailka said: “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 met in a nightclub called Hobo in the French capital last June, shortly after he was snubbed by France manager Didier Deschamps for the World Cup squad.

At the time he was also accused of underperforming for former United boss Jose Mourinho, who was sacked last month.

But his rollercoaster relationship with his boss was the last thing on Martial’s mind when he clapped eyes on Malika at the upmarket club.

The pair danced together and chatted before exchanging contact details.

Martial, 23, started sending her messages on social media app Snapchat the next day.

She said: “It started off pretty friendly and he’d ask how I was and if I was having a good day and we’d send silly pictures.

"But then it started to get a bit more personal.

"I knew he had a girlfriend, but he kept telling me they weren’t having sex because she was pregnant.

"I tried to put it to the back of my mind because I thought we had a genuine connection and that he liked me.

"He kept referring to me as his second girlfriend. He made me feel special.”

Malika said he soon started asking for nude pics of her – and sent her a string of snaps showing off his manhood, which this paper has seen.

They then agreed to meet at the hotel on July 3 for a night of passion. But the pacy frontman didn’t manage to last a full 90 minutes during their romp.

Malika said: “He was attentive and he kept asking me if he was doing it right and if I was enjoying it.

"But it was over pretty quickly. I was surprised because he seemed really in shape.”

After their romp the pair continued to chat for several months, but Malika moved to Miami.

Undeterred, new dad Martial – whose son Swan was born on July 26 – continued to text her.

Malika eventually called time on the relationship in November after she said it became apparent he was only after one thing.

She said: “I really cared for him. It felt special. But in the end it was clear he was just using me.

"I decided to cut off contact because I didn’t want to pursue a relationship with someone who was already in one and I didn’t want to get hurt.”

Martial’s girlfriend Melanie appeared in Secret Story, a French version of reality show Big Brother.

When they met in 2016, Martial was married to Samantha Helena, the mother of his daughter, Peyton, now four.

The soccer star split from Samantha, his childhood sweetheart, after it emerged that he had bedded X Factor wannabe Emily Wademan in 2016.

They tried for a reconciliation, but Samantha became suspicious that he was seeing Melanie after she saw they had been exchanging texts and FaceTiming each other.

Samantha has previously described love rival Melanie’s behaviour as “disgusting”.

Last summer Martial’s agent revealed he wanted to leave United, who he joined from AS Monaco in 2015 for £36million.

But he has had a return to form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as caretaker manager and has scored nine goals in 24 games this season.
