And he now looks to be on his way out of the club until the end of the campaign.
Tweeting on Monday evening, journalist Fabrizio Romano said: “Talks for Anthony Martial to join Sevilla on loan will continue in the coming hours.
“Club confident – Martial’s the priority.”
Martial has scored 79 goals and provided 50 assists in 269 games for Man Utd since arriving in 2015.
But recently he spent four games out of the squad after a spat with new boss Rangnick.
The German coach claimed Martial did not want to travel with the team for their 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.
Rangnick said: “He didn’t want to be in the squad.
“He would have been in the squad normally, but he didn’t want to. That is the reason why he was not travelling with us.”
But Martial then hit back at his manager’s comments with his own post on social media.
He said: “I will never refuse to play a match for Man United.
“I’ve been here for seven years and I never disrespected and will never disrespect the club and the fans.”
Since then, the Frenchman was included on the bench for United’s 3-1 win over Brentford.
He then came on for a few minutes at the end of the game at home to West Ham and watched Marcus Rashford score a stoppage time winner to hand United a 1-0 victory.
Meanwhile, another Man Utd forward is also being linked with a move away – England international Jesse Lingard.
A number of sides are thought to be interested in the 29-year-old including West Ham, Newcastle and Nice.
