Manchester United have been forced into action after Marcus Rashford reportedly told his teammates he was not happy at the club.
The 20-year-old has spent over a decade at Manchester United, graduating through the club’s academy system and featuring in over 100 games for the first-team.
Despite being a regular in United’s squad this season, his reduced role is believed to be causing tension.
The Daily Mirror say Rashford recently told some of his teammates at Old Trafford that he’s unhappy with his lack of starts since the arrival of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
It is claimed this has led to substantial panic in the Manchester United boardroom, with club chiefs quickly drawing up a new deal in an attempt to keep him happy.
Mourinho views Lukaku and Sanchez as his two main forwards and this has had a negative impact on both Rashford and Frenchman Anthony Martial.
Rashford has two years remaining on his current contract but United hope he agrees to sign a new deal following this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
After he was dropped for United’s meeting against West Ham at the London Stadium, Teddy Sheringham said Rashford ought to be considering his options and needs to be playing more regularly to develop.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Manchester United striker said: ‘I said at the start of the season about Marcus Rashford that he needs to play games.
‘He needs to learn what he can get away with on a football pitch, what he can do, what he can’t do. You don’t learn that by watching other people play.
‘I don’t care how good the players are, it’s all about experience, it’s about making mistakes along the way and coming up against these players week in, week out and knowing how to prepare to play next season and the season after that.
‘But if you don’t get the experience, you don’t get the chance. All you do is sit and watch and you make mistakes later in life.
‘He needs to learn now, he’s an unbelievable talent for me, and he needs to be playing in a first-team somewhere.’
