Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has dismissed regarding Marcus Rashford exiting Old Trafford at the end of the season.

The England international has seen his game time cut short since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January but, surely instead of leaving the club, his attitude should turn to fighting for his place and proving his worth?

Reports of late suggested Rashford has become disillusioned with his reduced playing time of late, and he could be tempted to pursue a fresh challenge elsewhere.

Neville has since rubbished the claim as he believes the 20-year-old would have no desire to part ways with his hometown club.

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, Neville said: “How can Marcus Rashford leave Manchester United? How can Manchester United let him leave? It’s impossible. People saying he should leave are talking nonsence, it’s rubbish. The kid has been brilliant for 18 months.”

United ought to be mad to sell Rashford now. He’s very much the future of the club and whether Mourinho cares about that or not, this is when someone needs to step in. The manager wouldn’t like that, of course, but the fans aren’t going to accept potential such as Rashford being pushed aside so easily.
