Anthony Martial holds showdown talks with Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick as frustrated striker chases Sevilla transfer

ANTHONY MARTIAL held talks with Ralf Rangnick over his Manchester United future — amid interest from Sevilla.

The France forward’s agent has already made it clear his client wants to move next month.

Newcastle have been strongly linked but Sevilla is his preferred destination, although the Spanish club favour an initial loan for the remainder of the season.

A knee injury kept Martial, 26, out of Rangnick’s first two games in charge but he is now closing on a return.

But with Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford in the squad, he could find himself surplus to requirements when fully fit again.

Earlier this month, Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley angered United by going public with his wish to find a move for the striker at the earliest opportunity.

He said: “Anthony wishes to leave the club in January.

“He just needs to play. I will speak to the club soon.”

Interim manager Rangnick has brought in Ewan Sharp as an assistant coach to replace Kieran McKenna, who left to boss Ipswich.

Performance analyst Sharp worked alongside Rangnick at Lokomotiv Moscow and also knew him from New York Red Bulls.

The Scot was on the backroom team of new United assistant coach Chris Armas at Toronto.

Sharp played a part in training on Wednesday at Carrington, now reopened after a Covid shutdown.

Most players returned on Tuesday while others — including Ronaldo — drifted back yesterday.

Rangnick has also appointed sports psychologist Sascha Lense.
