Former Newcastle striker Micky Quinn has urged Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford to leave Old Trafford and join Premier League rivals Chelsea, Arsenal or Liverpool.
As we reported earlier, the England international is said to have become disillusioned with his lack of game time under Jose Mourinho, and will consider his future if the the Portuguese coach remains at Old Trafford past this summer.
Rashford, has actually featured in 44 games this season, although only 22 have been starts.
The 20-year-old was said to be fuming at having been left on the bench for the recent Manchester Derby and is also upset that January signing Alexis Sanchez seems to have pushed him down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Quinn who was something of a cult goal scorer during the 1990’s rates Rashford highly and he believes the youngster should move on in search of regular first team football.
“I think he’s gotta go. He’s not a first choice for Jose Mourinho. He is not first choice.” Quinn told TalkSport.
“The kid is one of the most exciting players we’ve seen in a Manchester United shirt – I’ve got to say that.”
“If he wants to be a regular, I don’t think it’s with Jose Mourinho. Lukaku is the first choice on the pitch.”
The former frontman who once claimed he could beat any man in the world over a yard was then asked about what team’s Rashford would fit in at.
“Arsenal he’s walk in there. [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang is OK but he can play as a three can’t he, like Liverpool.”
Quinn was the quizzed about whether he would fit in at Chelsea or Liverpool and replied:
‘Definitely. Definitely. Liverpool?
“They wouldn’t sell him to Liverpool but I think he’d get into most Premier League teams.”
“The kid wants to play. I think next season if he can see he’s going to be a sub for most of the season then he’s got to move.”
