Jose Mourinho has played down the chances of Marcus Rashford leaving Manchester United on loan for next season.

The England international has been in good form for the Red Devils this term but he has found his first team opportunities to be somewhat restricted under Mourinho this term.

The 20-year-old has only started 16 Premier League games so far this season and he is facing increased competition for a place in the first team following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January.

There have been suggestions that Manchester United could ship Rashford out on loan for next season so he can benefit from some more regular playing time.

However, Red Devils boss Mourinho insists that he isn’t currently thinking about sending the attacker out on loan for next season.

Asked whether Rashford needed to leave on a loan deal in order to impress him, Mourinho told a news conference on Wednesday: “No. To impress me? He impresses me.

“That’s the reason why he was selected for every match of the season – absolutely every match of the season, and that’s why he played in so many of them, so he doesn’t need to leave to play or to need anything.”

Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table and are on course to finish as runners-up to Manchester City in the table.

The Red Devils are still aiming to end the season with a trophy when they take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at the end of the month.
