Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been far from his best this season.

The 24-year-old started out as a sensational teenager, but has failed to reach those heights in recent months.

Rumours now have it that Rashford is considering his future at Manchester United and may leave the club at the end of the season.

Club legend Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Rashford doesn’t look happy anymore at the club and his performances have been far from impressive as well.

Asked about the reports suggesting Rashford could force a move away from Manchester United, Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel.

“That’s thrown me, I’ve got to be honest. If that’s real, I can’t believe it’s real, I’ve got to be honest.

“If it’s real, and let’s take it as it is, you can only talk like that when you’re playing well. You can only talk like that when you’re performing and scoring, and Marcus isn’t doing that right now.

“He hasn’t played well for a while now. He doesn’t look happy at the moment, he doesn’t look happy at United. Tell me if I’m wrong.

“I watch him and he looks like he’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders. I’ve seen it for weeks, he doesn’t look happy.

“The Marcus Rashford that came in, that was United, he had energy, spark, quality, aggression, spark, work ethic.

“Those things aren’t what I’m seeing right now. If he’s brutally honest with himself, he would admit that.

“I don’t know where this information has come from but I hope it’s not from Marcus’ camp because I’d be embarrassed if it had, because he’s not scoring which is his job and hasn’t been decisive.

“The club is in a low ebb and you’re looking at your future. You’ve got to be playing well mate before you talk like that, I’m sorry.

“He used to be electrifying but I don’t see that energy right now. He doesn’t look happy, man.”
