- The former Manchester United full-back has expressed his displeasure with the England striker’s circumstances, believing it would be a “lose/lose” situation if he departed.
Marcus Rashford leaving Manchester United in the summer, according to Gary Neville, would be a “disaster for Manchester United’s football department.”
Rashford is contemplating his future at Manchester United following a slump in form that has seen him lose his starting spot.
Rashford may be permitted to leave the club if he is unhappy with his playing time, according to Ralf Rangnick, and Neville believes it would be a “lose/lose” situation for both the club and the player if he did.
What Gary Neville Says?
1. A failure for United’s football department if he leaves
2. A very poor look for MR if he can’t get his form right to break into this team
3. MR/Team would be naive if they think his off-pitch voice will carry without the MU badge
Lose/Lose if he goes. Sort it out!

What did Rangnick have to say about it?
Rangnick, the interim United manager, told reporters: “I don’t believe he hasn’t gotten enough playing 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.
“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.
“The window has now been closed. It has nothing to do with the game tomorrow or the game on Tuesday.”
Rashford has appeared in how many games this season?
Rashford has struggled to find consistent playing time in the 2021-22 season, with United adding to their front line in the summer with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo.
In total, the England attacker has scored five goals in 24 appearances across all competitions.
However, he has only started two of United’s previous 11 Premier League games, and in the absence of Ronaldo and Cavani, Rangnick chose to start Bruno Fernandes as a false nine against Manchester City.
