Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick says he is unconcerned about the possibility of losing Marcus Rashford, the club’s homegrown striker – saying he can leave the club in the summer.
According to rumors, the England international is fed up with his lack of playing time and is exploring a summer transfer away from Old Trafford.
His manager, on the other hand, believes that he is still happy and eager to return to his best.
What has been said?
In reaction to the exit rumors, Ralf Rangnick told reporters on Friday, “I spoke with him yesterday and the day before yesterday, so I don’t know anything about that.”
“In my 25 years as a professional football player, I’ve learned not to pay too much attention to what’s going on in the media. He didn’t say much to me, but he did mention that he is still happy and that he wants to perform well for the club.
“There was no indication that he was unhappy at this location. This is not a concern for me.”
“My worry and concern, or what I’m attempting to achieve with him, is similar to what we did with Anthony [Elanga], Jadon, and one or two other young players we have, in order to improve his performance and ensure that he gets the greatest version of himself.”
A broader view
Rangnick believes he has been given the time to establish his worth despite starting only two of his club’s last 11 Premier League games.
“I don’t believe he hasn’t gotten enough game time. Since I’ve been here, he’s played 13-14 games, and he’s played more games from the start than he hasn’t. I don’t believe this is a problem, and he hasn’t mentioned it since we spoke yesterday” the manager added.
“However, the window is currently closed. Even if he and his agents or family consider going to another club at any point during the summer, he can do so, but only during the summer.”Rangnick on Rashford
“The window has now been closed. It has nothing to do with the Manchester United game tomorrow or the game on Tuesday.”
