Man Utd News: Marcus Rashford has been urged to leave Old Trafford

That is according to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, who believes the England international will struggle to dislodge Romelu Lukaku from Jose Mourinho’ starting XI.

Rashford, 20, has struggled for regular minutes through the middle since Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal in the dugout in 2016.

Romelu Lukaku is the preferred option and Carragher believes Rashford should take note of the former Everton man’s career path.

When asked by Sky Sports if the Manchester United academy graduate needs to leave, Carragher said: “I think so, yes.

“Rashford might have to move away to come back to a top team”

“In order to play centre-forward for Manchester United you’ve got to be world class. Rashford’s not world class yet. He might be at 23 or 24.

“So Rashford might have to move away to come back to a top team.

“The problem he’s got, and it’s the same for every young striker at big clubs, nothing’s harder than that position.

“And you look at Lukaku, I don’t see him ever displacing Lukaku while he’s there.

“But remember Lukaku at Chelsea, he had to come away to Everton. Then ended up as the top scorer one season at Everton in the Premier League, then gets his move to Man United.

“And possibly Everton is the sort of club, just below the top six, similar to what Lukaku did [when he moved], when you know you’re going to play every week. You’re going to be that centre-forward.

“You know if you have a couple of games where you don’t score you’re still going to play the next week. I think that’s the problem he has at Man United.

“I think last season, Brighton away, Mourinho had a pop at him and Lukaku went straight back into the team. That’s the problem you’re always going to have.”

Rashford is suspended for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Watford after being sent off in the win at Burnley.

He scored the only goal of the game as England beat Switzerland last night to end a run of consecutive defeats.
