Pundit tells Rashford to seek Arsenal move

Former Newcastle United forward Micky Quinn has urged Marcus Rashford to quit Manchester United and join Arsenal at the end of the season.

Rashford is believed to be considering his future at Old Trafford amid suggestions that the 20-year-old is frustrated with his lack of starts at the Theatre of Dreams.

The England international has made 44 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils this season, but has struggled for a starting spot since Alexis Sanchez’s January arrival.

A number of Premier League clubs are said to be closely monitoring the situation surrounding the attacker, who has 12 goals to his name this season.

Quinn has insisted that Rashford will never be first choice under Jose Mourinho at United due to the presence of Romelu Lukaku, and has told the youngster to seek a move to Arsenal at the end of the season.

Quinn told talkSPORT:

“I think he’s got to go. He’s not a first choice for Jose Mourinho. He is not first choice. The kid is one of the most exciting players we’ve seen in a Manchester United shirt – I’ve got to say that.

“If he wants to be a regular, I don’t think it’s with Jose Mourinho. Lukaku is the first choice on the pitch. Arsenal, he’d walk in there.”

Rashford, who is valued at £45m by transfermarkt.co.uk, played the final eight minutes of United’s 3-2 win over Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has previously urged the Englishman to leave Old Trafford in this summer’s transfer window.
