Man United fans ridicule Jamie Redknapp's suggestion Marcus Rashford might need to leave Old Trafford
Alexis Sanchez is a Manchester United player.
You might have heard.
Having made his debut for Jose Mourinho's side in the FA Cup with Yeovil last Friday night, he's expected to make his Premier League bow for his new club at Wembley on Wednesday night against Tottenham Hotspur.
Though United's team at Huish Park was by no means 'weak', it's fair to say that it probably wasn't at its strongest with the likes of Paul Pogba, David De Gea and Anthony Martial left out of the squad entirely.
When it is at full strength, it's still unclear how exactly Alexis Sanchez will fit in. This was something on the agenda for Jamie Redknapp as he sat down with Jeff Stelling to discuss the implications of Sanchez's Old Trafford arrival for some of his new teammates.
For Redknapp, he suggested Marcus Rashford might suffer as a result. Not just this, he also added the England youngster might have to move elsewhere for regular football.
"I just feel for people like Marcus Rashford," Redknapp explained. "They go down the pecking order and he's probably thinking to himself 'where do I fit in now?'
"Part of the Premier League is having these players, but I just feel sorry when someone like Marcus Rashford is thinking 'this is another pathway blocked for me.'
"He might have to go in the end."

This hasn't gone down well with United supporters, many pointing out that Rashford, 20, has featured in every single Premier League game this season.

Jamie Redknapp talking about how Rashford will need to leave United to “get more playing time”.
Never mind the fact that he’s played in almost every game for United this season, why is it only United’s responsibility to nurture youth?
