Carragher: Rashford may need to leave Man Utd to reach potential.

  • Rashford may need to leave Man Utd if he’s to emerge as a world-class striker.

  • England international needs regular football at a club outside the top six in the Premier League, says former Reds defender.

Marcus Rashford may need to leave Manchester United to become a world-class striker, according to Liverpool great Jamie Carragher.

The 20-year-old scored the winning goal for England when they took on Switzerland on Tuesday night, just three days after scoring the opening goal in the Nations League defeat to Spain.

However, the football expert thinks Rashford can’t develop under Jose Mourinho to reach his full potential

Carragher said ask Sky Sports reported: "Romelu Lukaku is in front of Rashford and I don't see Rashford displacing him as long as he is there.

"But remember when Lukaku was at Chelsea and he had to come away and go to Everton. Then he ended up as top scorer and got his move to Man Utd.

Suarez admits it may not be possible to retire at Barca.

"Possibly Everton is the sort of club you are looking at, just below the top six, for someone like Rashford, similar to what Lukaku did.

"You know you are going to play every week as the centre-forward and you know if you have a couple of games where you don't score then you are still going to play the next week.

"Last season after they played Brighton away, Mourinho had a little pop at him and Lukaku went straight back into the team. That's the problem you will always have.

"Does he have to leave United? I think so. Is he good enough to displace Lukaku? Is Rashford good enough to be Manchester United's centre-forward for them trying to win the Premier League or the Champions League? He may not be.

Marcelo dismisses exit talk.

"It gets to the stage where you want to play every week. Will he be an England regular or be Manchester United's real centre-forward where you know, when the team is picked every week, that he is in it. Will it ever get to that stage?

"In that position you have got to be world class. Rashford is not world class yet, but he might be at 23 or 24, as Lukaku has done. He looks like one of the best strikers in the world.

"Rashford may have to move away to come back to one of the top teams."
