Mourinho closing in on Man United, planning to make sensational player key to his plans


Jose Mourinho is a divisive figure among Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, though reports from the Sun claiming the former Chelsea chief is ready to make Marcus Rashford a key member of his first-team could get any naysayers back on side.

The Portuguese is not noted for bringing through young players and nurturing talent, which has been mooted as one of the reasons as to why he shouldn’t be handed the reins.

United are a club with a rich history in developing their own stars, having had great success with the likes of the Busby Babes and the Class of ’92.

Rashford has recently emerged as a beacon of hope amid the stagnating nature of life under Louis van Gaal, scoring seven goals in his opening 12 games since making his debut in February.

There had been concern as to whether the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ would help nurture the 18-year old who has made such a promising start to his senior career.

However, it is claimed that Mourinho is looking to dispel the notion he neglects to nurture by making the talented teen a key member of his squad should he takeover.

How far can Rashford go in the game? Do you back Jose to win anything with kids?
