RALF RANGNICK has sensationally revealed that wantaway forward Anthony Martial REFUSED to be involved in the squad to face Aston Villa.

The Red Devils dropped more ground in the race for the top four after blowing a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against the Villans on Saturday evening.

United were without Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford for the clash in the Midlands due to injury.

And with Martial unwilling to feature for the club, United were forced to hand youngster Anthony Elanga his first start of the Premier League season.

Having ruled himself out of travelling with his team-mates, United had to name just eight substitutes – including two goalkeepers.

Martial has let it be known to interim boss Rangnick that he wishes to depart the Theatre of Dreams this month as Sevilla look to secure his services.

The 26-year-old continues to push for a move away with Rangnick declaring the player has no interest in pulling on the United shirt.

Speaking of his absence following the disappointing result against Villa, the German gaffer 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 yesterday [on Friday].”

It was reported earlier in the week how Sevilla were preparing a bid to bring the ex-Monaco starlet to Spain on an initial loan deal.

But the Les Bleus international could be priced out of a move to the LaLiga side as United are demanding they pay at least half of his £130,000-a-week wages.

In addition to this, United want a loan fee for Martial, with Marca stating Sevilla aren’t willing to meet these demands.

Martial, who has featured in just seven top-flight games this term, hasn’t appeared for United since his short two minute cameo in the 3-2 win against Arsenal on December 2.

He is yet to play under Rangnick since he took charge following the victory over the Gunners.
