Manchester United coach Ralf Ragnick has insisted that Anthony Martial has not spoken to him or anybody at the club about a potential departure from Old Trafford.
The Red Devils were hit by a “small number” of positive Covid-19 lateral flow tests results this past Sunday after which the clash in west London was postponed.
One player ruled out before the game was cancelled, was France striker Martial, who continues to struggle with a knee injury.
Martial’s agent also made comments over this past weekend about his client seeking a move away from Old Trafford.
But Rangnick said: “If he has a wish to go to another club, it should be the player who informs either the board or myself.
“I don’t communicate with agents via the media and the press. The player hasn’t spoken with me or us about it.
“After the final training session before the Crystal Palace game, after having trained with the team, he informed the doctor and medical staff he would not be available because the pain on his knee is too big, so we have to wait and see with Anthony.
“To be honest, what his agent says via media is not that much of interest to me.”
United have closed their Carrington training ground for 24 hours due to a number of positive coronavirus tests.
