Wrighty: Mourinho wants to sell Martial ahead of Man Utd teammate Rashford

Rashford proud to learn that he is the most utilised player by Jose Mourinho

Any summer approach for Marcus Rashford will reportedly be treated as "unwelcome" by Manchester United.

Martial was getting more opportunities in the starting eleven before Sanchez joined in January, but Mourinho refused to provide any indicators over the Frenchman's future at the club. You always go to the one.

The Manchester United manager has made it clear that he will not be pressured into picking players if he does not feel they should be in his team.

"They should be a lot closer to Manchester City with the quality they have got but they have not been able to really express themselves in the way they want to". Only 11 can start.

For United, their home match against bottom-of-the-league West Brom remains an important game as they look to strengthen their hold on second spot in the Premier League standings.

"I have dry answers and a dry answer is only eleven can start the match and we are 22".


Asked if it was hard keeping his players happy, Mourinho said: "No. The quality, the experience of numerous players, the squad, the stability of the past years is a surprise for me that they find themselves in this position".

"I think it's a unsafe week for us because we come from a very good result and also I think a few consecutive victories in the Premier League".

Nevertheless, no player has made more appearances for United than Rashford's 98 since Mourinho took over at the start of last season- a fact a stoney-faced Mourinho was quick to point out when questioned about the England international's infrequent starting opportunities.

Mourinho was blasted by ex-Crystal Palace boss last month for not playing Rashford more often.

No, no. If I have more competitions for him I have more competition for the other ones you are saying are not happy because they are not playing. Lewis Grabban's first-half header was enough to give the hosts victory at Villa Park as Leeds fell to their 10th defeat of 2018.

And Mourinho today hit back at reporters who asked about his plans to sign a striker, claiming he can not buy any more players while he is struggling to include first-team stars.
