Ralf Rangnick has told Marcus Rashford he can leave Manchester United this summer.

Ralf Rag­nick has told Mar­cus Rash­ford to leave this sum­mer if he intends to leave Old Trafford.

But the Man­ches­ter Unit­ed boss wants Rash­ford to for­get about his future for now and focus on help­ing the Red Dev­ils secure a top-four place.

Boss Rang­nick said: “Let’s say he and his agents, or his fam­i­ly, at some point in the sum­mer maybe think about going to anoth­er club, well he can do that — but in the summer.

“Now the win­dow is closed. It has noth­ing to do with our next game or Tues­day’s game.

Rash­ford was left out of the Red Dev­ils’ start­ing line-up for last Sun­day’s dis­mal der­by defeat at the Eti­had despite Rang­nick not hav­ing anoth­er strik­er available.

It left the local boy con­sid­er­ing mov­ing away from Old Traf­ford for the first time.

He has 18 months left on his cur­rent con­tract, with an option from the club side to extend it for a fur­ther year.

But Rang­nick insists his main con­cern is how to get the best out of the play­er for the rest of the season.

Rash­ford has strug­gled for form, scor­ing just five goals in 24 appearances.

Rang­nick said: “We should just fin­ish this sea­son as well as pos­si­ble and then there will be enough time in the sum­mer to talk about it.”

Rang­nick refused to ‘waste ener­gy’ ahead of today’s show­down against Tot­ten­ham when speak­ing about the Cris­tiano Ronal­do case.
