Marcus Rashford is completely happy at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho – report

Marcus Rashford is incredibly happy under Jose Mourinho and is not stalling over a new contract at Manchester United, according to reports.

It was reported by the Times that the youngster, who has made 31 appearances so far this season, had halted talks over a new contract due to a recent lack of starting opportunities under Mourinho.

Rashford featured from the start during recent games against Hull and Leicester City, and has claimed six goals since making his first appearance of the campaign in late August.

And according to M.E.N‘s Samuel Luckhurst, Rashford is very happy at Old Trafford.

The idea of Rashford refusing t0 discuss a new deal would make sense if the 19-year-old hadn’t actually signed a new contract with the club over the summer.

Moreover, it only takes a quick glance at the youngster’s on-pitch demeanour to tell that he is fully focused on life at Old Trafford: bold, indefatigable, and visibly determined to impose himself at every opportunity. He is, above anything, a remarkably grounded individual, and he will know that a place in the starting XI every week – especially with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard all vying for the same spot – is far from guaranteed.

But this is no deterrent for Rashford: he has, after all, already battled his way into the starting XI on several occasions during the nascent stages of his career.
