As reported by The Mirror, Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is growing disillusioned with his lack of game time under Jose Mourinho this season and it’s a situation that could come to a head during the summer transfer window.
Rashford has found starting opportunities hard to come by recently, making Mourinho’s starting eleven just five times in the club’s last 15 matches in all competitions.
Making 43 appearances in total this season, nearly half of them have come from the bench and it’s a situation that is troubling the 20-year-old.
That’s according to The Mirror, who say that he may not even be at the club next season if Jose Mourinho is still in charge, such is the player’s desire to play from the start of matches regularly.
Rated at £45m by Transfermarkt, is his future best served elsewhere or should he concentrate on convincing his manager he is worth a regular game?
With 12 goals and 9 assists so far this season, Rashford has certainly still contributed a fair amount to United’s campaign, even with limited minutes on the pitch.
In the first half of the season he was particularly impressive before finding his action limited more and more to substitute appearances with the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.
At 20 years old though, the amount of football he is getting at a massive club like the Red Devils is still quite impressive and he is likely learning and improving all the time under the guidance of Mourinho.
He has plenty of time to leave a legacy at the club and although being impatient to play is a good sign, there’s little point in looking for a move away when there is so much to achieve at Old Trafford.
His performance against Liverpool last month demonstrated he can still be deadly when given the chance that’s unlikely something to be forgotten by the United boss next term.
