Manchester United striker to stay back at club and fight for first-team spot

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford wants to stay at Manchester United and fight for a first-team spot, according to the Sun.

A United source was quoted by the Sun, claiming that the striker would have a difficult decision to make next summer.

“Marcus loves the club and does not want to move but he wants to be a striker or at least play down the middle as a No 10.

“He is not going to give up trying to prove himself at United but he knows he may have a big decision to make soon.”

The 20-year-old has struggled for form under Jose Mourinho but he scored in the international fixtures against Spain and Switzerland.

The Englishman will miss three clashes due to his red card against Burnley in our last game. And Jamie Carragher believes a move for Rashford would be ideal.

The former Liverpool defender was quoted by the Sun:

“I don’t see Rashford ever displacing Lukaku so long as he is there.

“Everton is a club where someone like a Rashford knows he can play every week.”

Lukaku will be our first-choice striker for a while and the Englishman might have to make the best of his chances when he gets them.

The 20-year-old has often been shifted wide and the report claims that the Englishman will have just one year remaining on his contract next summer.

A move to another club could provide more playing time but sticking at United will help him win silverware.
