Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford has been urged to leave Old Trafford if a place in England team gets threatens.
This is the words of Sky Sport pundit and former Southampton and England attacker Matt Le Tissier.
Rashford, a product of United academy broke into United first team in 2015 when he was named in United Premier League game against Watford.
The talented striker however made his first debut for United in a UEFA Europa League 5-1 victory over Midtjylland, scoring two goals in the second half.
Ever since then, the England international has been a key player for the Red Devils, making a total of 107 appearances while finding the back of the net 29 times in all competition.
Arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford is likely to further reduce Rashford chances to the bench.
Anthony Martial has been outstanding in recent weeks and the French star will likely to switch to the right flank while Sanchez plays from his preferred left flank in Mourinho’s starting eleven.
Le Tissier however claims it is too earlier for Rashford to think about possible exit. But could consider it if England Manager Gareth Southgate starts to leave him out of his squads due to limited club football.
“I wouldn’t have thought at this stage (that he will look to leave),” Le Tissier said.
“I think it’s still pretty early on in his career still, I’m not sure it’s at a stage where he feels ‘I’ve got to get away from here’.
“The only reason he probably would is if he’s looking at his England squad place being threatened.
“I think if that starts to happen, and I don’t think it will, then he has to look at the situation and think ‘hang on a minute, if I want to be playing regular for my country, I’ve got to be playing regular at a club somewhere’.
“And at that stage he might look to move on but he’s still a young boy.”
This for me is good news for the club and fans of the club. This means Rashford won’t be considering leaving the club any time soon.
