But Rooney, who is United's all-time scorer with 253 goals, has urged Rashford to stay at his boyhood club to rediscover his form and even break his record.

"To get the record and be United's highest goal scorer is f***ing massive," Rooney said during a black-tie event.

"What I hope is that Marcus Rashford f***ing gets his head out of his a**e and goes and breaks that record. He is a Manchester lad."

Rashford has scored 93 goals in 297 appearances for United. However, the forward's form this season has taken a drastic downturn and the 24-year-old looks a shadow of his former self.

After scoring 21 goals and 15 assists in the 2020/21 season, Rashford has struggled since his return from injury, scoring just five times and has only started three games since the start of 2022.
