Carragher names club Rashford should leave Manchester United for

Jamie Carragher believes that Everton could be the ideal fit for Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.

Rashford scored his second goal in as many starts for England as they beat Switzerland on Tuesday. Check out our player ratings.

The 20-year-old’s increasing opportunities at international level have placed his club future under the spotlight, with minutes far more difficult to come by at United.

Some have suggested he needs to move, but neither player nor club should rush into making a Rash decision.

Carragher does believe the striker would be justified in leaving Old Trafford, with Everton the sort of club that would benefit him.

“I don’t see Rashford ever displacing Lukaku so long as he is there, but Lukaku was at Chelsea and he had to come away from there and go to Everton,” he told Sky Sports. “He ended up top scorer and then got his move to Manchester United.

“Everton is a club where someone like a Rashford knows he can play every week.

“Last season, he played poorly against Brighton, Mourinho had a pop at him and Lukaku went straight back in the next game. That is the problem he will always have.

“It gets to the point when you ask if he will ever be an England regular or Manchester United’s real centre-forward.

“In that position, you have to be world-class. Rashford isn’t world-class yet, but he might be when he’s 24. Lukaku now looks like one of the best strikers so Rashford may have to move away to then move back to one of the big teams.”
