England international Marco Rashford will remain at Old Trafford for more seasons despite seeing his playing time reduced since the start of the season, according to reports.
The youngster who was phenomenal in United’s attack during the 2016-17 season has been reduced to one of the fringe players in José Mourinho’s team, and he might leave the Theater of Dreams ahead of next season.
The acquisition of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in the winter has further reduced the player’s chances of getting enough first-team action for the Red Devils.
There were speculations that the 21-year-old could move out of the club during the previous transfer window but nothing materialised because there were no clubs interested in the player’s signature. And now, reports have heavily linked him with a move to Real Madrid.
While reacting to the rumours linking the young striker with a move away from Old Trafford, former Manchester United player Daniel Higginbotham revealed to reporters that Rashford still has lots of quality to offer the team. He believes that the youngster would get more actions should he remain under the Portuguese manager.
Higginbotham also told reporters that the acquisition of Alexis Sanchez won’t have negative effects on the player’s appearance for the team, instead the Chilean striker will serve as a role model to the England striker and that will improve his performance during games.
Rashford broke into limelight during David Moyes’ reign as United manager, but growth hasn’t been steady since José Mourinho took charge from Ryan Giggs in 2016.
