Ian Wright outlines options for Rashford over the next 18 months

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said that Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has massive decisions to make at Old Trafford over the next 18 months.

Speaking to BBC Radio5Live, Wright said that the England international should either leave Old Trafford in order to begin the realisation of what football fans expect from him or stay and play under Jose or any other manager that could arrive.

Since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, Rashford's playing time has been limited, but that did not stop him from representing England at the World Cup in Russia.

Rashford made 35 Premier League appearances last season, with 18 of those coming from the bench. He scored a total of seven goals and amassed five assists in those games.

He has played three games in the league this term with two coming as a substitute.

He was sent off for United against Burnley after head butting Phil Bardsley in the second half of their Premier League encounter over the weekend. He has since apologised for his actions on social media.

His current deal with United ends in the summer of 2020.
