Jose Mourinho has claimed that Marcus Rashford will find his top form for Manchester United next season.

The England international has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils first team this term but has struggled to produce consistent performances in front of goal.

Indeed, the teenager has only managed to score three goals and make one assist in the Premier League so far this term heading into this weekend’s round of games.

There have been suggestions that Manchester United could be set to sign a new striker in the summer transfer window.

However, Mourinho seems to think that Rashford will be able to hit top gear for the Red Devils next season.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference on Friday, Mourinho said: “One thing’s for sure, Marcus is having amazing experience on the pitch this season, playing in every competition – Europe, the Premier League, the cups, Wembley, finals.

“He’s having an amazing experience which, after the hurricane that he was last season when he arrived, it’s giving him a hell of an experience.

“He’s such a good boy and such a good professional, I think this is a fantastic learning experience for him. Even with not scoring goals, next season he will. Next season will be a good season for him.”
