Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has dropped down the pecking order at the club and has started just two of United’s last 11 Premier League games.

There have been rumours that Rashford isn’t happy at the club anymore and may be considering an exit at the end of the season.

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has insisted that Rashford has had enough game time, and also told the player that the window is up for an exit if he truly wants to leave.

On Rashford’s lack of minutes, United interim manager Rangnick said: “I don’t think that he’s not had enough game time.

“In those 13, 14 games that I’ve been here now, he played more games from the start than he didn’t play from the start, so I don’t think that this is an issue. He never said anything about that when we spoke yesterday.

“But again, I mean, the window is closed right now. Even in case suppose he and his agents or his family at one stage of the summer think about maybe going to another club, well then he can do that but in the summer.

“Now the window is closed and it’s got nothing to do with tomorrow’s game or the game on Tuesday.”
