Paul Merson insists ‘no manager in their right mind’ would sell Manchester United star Marcus Rashford this summer.

Rashford has endured a difficult season for Manchester United and is even said to be considering his future at Old Trafford ahead of the summer after losing his place in the starting XI.

However, Merson believes talk of Rashford leaving United is ludicrous, claiming any incoming manager at the club this summer will want to keep him.

“It’s been two or three months and there is talk of Rashford being moved on. Seriously?” Merson told Sky Sports.

“No manager in their right mind would come to Old Trafford and offload Rashford.

“Even if I was going to take over the club as manager tomorrow morning, I wouldn’t be letting Rashford go!

“This is why Manchester United are in a shambles, how haven’t they got a manager in place now.

“Whoever does come in as manager isn’t going to get rid of Rashford, so the move will have to be done before then, that’s if it is going happen.”
