Marcus Rashford has delivered exactly the kind of season that many Manchester United fans feared he would.
After all the hype surrounding the England international last term, it was perhaps inevitable that the goals would dry up at some stage.
Such is his popularity at the club that Jose Mourinho has done his best to persevere with him, but after switching the 19-year-old over to the wing, he’s scored just three league goals in the whole campaign.
It seems United’s plan is to keep him in and around the first team until Zlatan Ibrahimovic departs – whether that will be this summer or next is as yet undecided.
According to The Times, though, Rashford isn’t content.

It’s hardly surprising that a player of such talent and who got off to such a brilliant start under Louis van Gaal isn’t best pleased with his current situation, so the newspaper claim he is now going to consider his future.
Rashford reportedly fears that he will never get a proper run in the team as long as Mourinho’s in charge, and competition for places is only going to get fiercer if Antoine Griezmann arrives as expected at the end of the season.
The starlet has started just 10 games in the Premier Leaguer under the new manager, and there are plenty of clubs where he would be getting opportunities week in, week out.
