Rashford will not be allowed to leave

Manchester United will reject any loan bid for their striker Marcus Rashford.

They made this statement after there were reports that fellow Premier League club West Ham was interested in taking out their young striker on loan.

Jose Mourinho has said that Rashford is an important player for the team and that he is the future of the Manchester United team and that he will not want to see him playing for another Premier League side.

West Ham is currently struggling at the wrong end of the table and are desperately looking for a decent striker to help them at the front. They will feel that in Dimitri Payet they have a good creative player and that having a striker such as Marcus Rashford up front will help them score more goals. West Ham has only managed to score 19 goals in the Premier League so far and will feel that a striker of Rashford quality can be a real boost for the team.

It is also believed that West Ham might also enquire for Antony Martial, but it is reported that Mourinho will again block any loan move.

Mourinho said that they are nearing a busy period in the Premier League and that he will need his whole squad if they want to win games. Indeed Manchester United does not have a recognized striker to replace Ibrahimovic up front, and they will be looking towards Marcus Rashford or Antony Martial to replace the big Swedish forward.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not that young nowadays, and it is not sure whether he will be able to go a whole season without any kind of rotation.

Jose Mourinho said that although Marcus Rashford is not getting as much game time as he would have probably wanted he feels that things could change in the future as he will be required to rotate his squad as the fixtures begin to pile up.
