Marcus Rashford was considered as one of the most important players at Manchester United not too long ago. In fact, he had been one of the first names on the team sheet for years and despite being just 24 years of age, he has made almost 300 appearances for the first-team already and is a senior player at Old Trafford. But unfortunately for the English international, playing time has been harder to come by recently.
Rashford returned from injury earlier in the campaign after having to undergo surgery. And although he made a bright start, his form has faded away since then.
As a result, he has struggled to make an impact for Manchester United when he has been on the pitch and has found playing time harder to come by since the arrival of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager, with the likes of Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga appearing to be ahead of Rashford in the pecking order right now.
Thus, rumours have emerged that Rashford is not happy with his situation and could look to make an exit in the future. Rangnick has reacted to those rumours recently. As reported by BBC, the club’s interim manager said:
"“It doesn’t many sense to put any energy into that.“I don’t think this is an issue and he never said anything about that when we spoke.“The window is closed right now. Even in case he and his agents or his family think about going to another club, well he can do that but in the summer.”"
Rangnick reacts to rumours of Rashford wanting to leave Manchester United
Thus, till now, it is pretty clear that Rashford has not expressed any interest in wanting to leave Manchester United to Rangnick.
Of course, things change very quickly in football and as a result, if he continues to struggle to get playing time under the German coach, it is very possible that he could consider his future.
The interesting thing about this entire situation is that Rangnick is only in the Old Trafford hot seat on an interim basis right now and a new permanent manager is expected to be brought in in the summer.
