The Frenchman had talks with Rangnick shortly after he arrived to outline his plans to leave this month over a lack of playing time.
The 26-year-old came on as a second half substitute in the 1-0 win against West Ham on Saturday and those eight minutes were the first he had played under the German.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival saw him fall further down the pecking order and after he had submitted his transfer request, he was omitted from the matchday squads. Rangnick told the media he wanted to include the Frenchman in the squad for the away-day trip to Read More
