Mourinho views Lukaku and Sanchez as his two main forwards and this has had a negative impact on both Rashford and Frenchman Anthony Martial.

Rashford has two years remaining on his current contract but United hope he agrees to sign a new deal following this summers World Cup in Russia.

After he was dropped for Uniteds meeting against West Ham at the London Stadium, Teddy Sheringham said Rashford ought to be considering his options and needs to be playing more regularly to develop.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Manchester United striker said: I said at the start of the season about Marcus Rashford that he needs to play games.

He needs to learn what he can get away with on a football pitch, what he can do, what he cant do. You dont learn that by watching other people play.

I dont care how good the players are, its all about experience, its about making mistakes along the way and coming up against these players week in, week out and knowing how to prepare to play next season and the season after that.

But if you dont get the experience, you dont get the chance. All you do is sit and watch and you make mistakes later in life.

He needs to learn now, hes an unbelievable talent for me, and he needs to be playing in a first-team somewhere.
