Kluivert shuts down Manchester United rumours

The Express understands that Marcus Rashford's future at Manchester United has been thrown into doubt after the club were linked with a move for Ajax forward Justin Kluivert.

Jose Mourinho also seemed to appreciate the kindred spirit that a band of homegrown talent can bring - especially at a club like Manchester United where bringing through young players is nearly an unwritten rule.

"The chances of me leaving are slim", Kluivert insisted.

"I have heard the rumours but I haven't spoken to Mourinho".

"Obviously they're a little bit closer to Manchester City but I would say probably three or four, which ultimately because Jose always gets his way, he will get three or four in the summer", Lawrenson told FootballTips. I know as much as you do, how likely I am to leave? that opportunity is not very big, I really know nothing. A few more years at Ajax? "Because he's a manager who knows what he needs to do to win the match and with him I learn a lot".

"A move to Manchester United wouldn't make sense, for now".

The Reds Devils have been City's nearest rivals throughout the campaign but Mourinho concedes the gap is nearly certainly insurmountable with 13 games remaining, saying United "need points to be the first of the last".

Rashford, 20, came on as a 71st-minute substitute in the 2-0 victory at Old Trafford but felt a strain at the top of his left leg during his 20-minute appearance.

The statement read: "We note our manager's further comments regarding the poor atmosphere within Old Trafford following the Huddersfield home game".

United's challenge has been bolstered by the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, who scored on his home debut against Huddersfield.

As the first great Scot Sir Alexander Matthew Busby once said, "if you are good enough, you are old enough" and Jose Mourinho seems to have certainly bought into that.

Mourinho signed Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba the previous summer and his spending has totalled around £300million, but Lawrenson still believes United have areas to strengthen.
