West Ham boss Slaven Bilic insists there is no truth in reports claiming he’ll make a loan move for Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford in the January transfer window.

The arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has seen Rashford’s role in the side reduced under Jose Mourinho as he has struggled for minutes following his breakout season.

Although he has recently admitted the club could invest in an English player with Premier League experience, he was quick to dismiss speculation surround Rashford.

Speaking about a deal, Bilic understood how important Rashford is for Man United.

“No way,” Bilic said. “Rashford is very valuable for Manchester United. There’s no way. There’s no way to get him. They have many games, four competitions. He’s playing. So no way. No way.

“We are the club that is linked with the most players in Europe! Every player that is available, it is always West Ham.”

They have also been linked with Patrice Evra and Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe, but it’s clear that Rashford won’t be leaving Old Trafford in January.

Although he hasn’t had the same impact as last campaign, Rashford is learning from one of the best strikers in football with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Hopes are once the Swede decides to retire, Rashford is ready to guide the side forward up front.
