Marcus Rashford is considering a move away from Manchester United due to his lack of game-time as Multiple reports claim.

And Rio Ferdinand ripped into Marcus Rashford after reports claimed he was weighing up his future at Old Trafford.

Rashford was left on the bench for Manchester United’s 4-1 derby defeat by Pep Guardiola’s side despite injuries to Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, which Gary Neville reckons was the “ultimate put-down” for the striker.

Following the humiliating setback, many sources say that Rashford is considering leaving Old Trafford due to a lack of playing time.

Rashford’s contract runs through the summer of 2023, though the club has the option to extend it by a year, which they are expected to take advantage of in order to protect the forward’s market value.

After hearing Rashford was supposedly seeking to force a move away from Old Trafford, former Manchester United defender Ferdinand didn’t hold back.

Rashford should be “embarrassed” if the claims originated from his camp, according to the commentator, who argues that “you’ve got to be performing good before you talk like that.”

Rashford is also not “happy at the moment,” according to Ferdinand.

He told the FIVE YouTube channel : “That’s thrown me, I’ve got to be honest. If that’s real, I can’t believe it’s real, I’ve got to be honest.

“If it’s real, and let’s take it as it is, you can only talk like that when you’re playing well. You can only talk like that when you’re performing and scoring, and Marcus isn’t doing that right now.

“He hasn’t played well for a while now. He doesn’t look happy at the moment, he doesn’t look happy at United. Tell me if I’m wrong.

“I watch him and he looks like he’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders. I’ve seen it for weeks, he doesn’t look happy.

“The Marcus Rashford that came in, that was United, he had energy, spark, quality, aggression, spark, work ethic.

“Those things aren’t what I’m seeing right now. If he’s brutally honest with himself, he would admit that.

“I don’t know where this information has come from but I hope it’s not from Marcus’ camp because I’d be embarrassed if it had because he’s not scoring, which is his job and hasn’t been decisive.

“The club is in a low ebb and you’re looking at your future. You’ve got to be playing well mate before you talk like that, I’m sorry.

“He used to be electrifying but I don’t see that energy right now. He doesn’t look happy, man.”
