Anthony Martial held talks with Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick on Wednesday as he tries to secure a move away next month.
The 26-year old Frenchman is keen on a move to Sevilla after growing frustrated with his lack of starts at United this season.
His agent Philippe Lamboley irritated Rangnick earlier this month by going public with his client’s desire to leave prior to discussing it with the United boss.

Lamboley said: ‘Anthony wishes to leave the club in January. He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.’
A knee injury ruled Martial out of United’s games with Crystal Palace and Norwich City but he was at United’s training ground on Wednesday for his afternoon chat with Rangnick hoping to resolve his future.
Rangnick has already declared that he does not see a need to convince players to stay at United and that his squad is too big.

Sevilla would want a loan deal for Martial and United must decide if that suits them with plenty of competition for two places up front.
Meanwhile, United have confirmed the addition of analyst Ewan Sharp to Rangnick’s backroom team.
The 29-year old Scot has joined from Lokomotiv Moscow and was at United’s training ground last week. He formerly worked with Toronto FC and New York Red Bulls.
