Rashford has played (in same capacity) 44 games for Utd this season. So itís a fallacy thatís heís not getting a look-in.
There are sound arguments for why heíd want to come here but the Lukaku scenario was totally different. Rom simply wasnít wanted by Chelsea whereas Rashford is highly thought of by Utd, heís just a young lad that isnít ready to displace a £90m senior striker.
Different scenario but there is the common thread of both (at that moment in time) wanting to play more games than Mourinho is willing to give an up and coming player. Rashford has been given more time as you say, but like Lukaku at the time he seemingly wants to be playing week in, week out.
If a player wants to play, I don't think you can argue with that and there is a difference between knowing you'll be on that team sheet most every week to only starting every few weeks with sub appearances, sprinkled in. That doesn't mean he wants to leave Man United but it's sensible at his age to want to get regular minutes and I could definitely see him being after a loan move.
So not entirely dissimilar. Let's face it, Man United (and Mourinho) want a finished product. He's let Salah and De Bruyne go as recent examples. There have been many rumours of them wanting Bale in over the last couple of windows and that doesn't seem so implausible at the moment with him being in and out of the Madrid team. If Bale comes in therefore...Rashford won't get much of a sniff at all.
We shall see.
