07:30: Marcus Rashford still has a lot to give Manchester United even if his place is now under threat by Alexis Sanchez.
That is according to pundit Danny Higginbotham.
“I don’t think he leaves the football club, he’s still had a lot of football this season,” the former player said.
“I would be amazed if he left the football club.
“He’s at a great club to progress from the players that are around him.
“I don’t think there’s a necessity or a need for it. He’ll get a large amount of games so I can’t really see it.
“He came on to the scene and because he was so good everybody expected, like we do in England, to be that finished article.
“There was a big expectancy on him and now he’s having a little bit of a lull in his early development but I don’t see him moving anywhere from Manchester United.”

Di Maria claim

“The only club I could not sign up for is Newell’s Old Boys because I’m a fan of Rosario Central.”
