Rashford is considering his future for the first time in his career at Man Utd

Marcus Rashford is considering handing in a transfer request at Manchester United due to his lack of playing time over the last few weeks under interim boss Ralf Rangnick. Rangnick has named Rashford in the starting line-up just twice in the previous 11 Premier League matches. The 24-year-old was sidelined in the first stretch of the season following shoulder surgery and gradually earned back his spot in the starting XI after his return to action. However, it seems as though Rangnick favours Anthony Elanga over Rashford for a spot in the first XI, and according to the Guardian, the England international is considering his future for the first time in his career at Manchester United.

Rashford’s got to get himself back on track

Despite the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani for last Sunday’s derby against Manchester City, Rangnick decided against starting Rashford and instead fielded Elanga, Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes in the attack. The Red Devils were thrashed 4-1 by their city rivals. “With Ronaldo out of the team, I think they might be better off with Rashford’s pace on the counter-attack today,” said Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville, who expected Rashford to start at the Etihad Stadium. “Rashford’s got to get himself back on track; for the last year, year and a half, he’s not been playing well. They shift him to the left, to the right, down the middle.”

 

“I don’t think he’s settled and grabbed a position; people refer to the off the field stuff whether it’s a distraction or not and he’s had injuries as well to be fair, his authority off the pitch doesn’t transfer onto the pitch for Manchester United.

“He’s done well here in the past playing at the Etihad, so it’s a big opportunity for him to show his quality again today if he plays.” Rashford has scored five goals and produced two assists in the 24 games he has played across all competitions for Manchester United this season.
