Manchester United’s coaches are reportedly concerned about Marcus Rashford’s form in front of goal and have been giving him extra finishing sessions in training.
Rashford has netted 15 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions this season but, according to a report from ESPN, United are concerned that he is becoming ‘too predictable’ in front of goal.
The report states that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been giving Rashford the additional training, with the club concerned he has become ‘over-reliant’ on using his power.
Solskjaer wants to see Rashford develop other elements of his finishing and is said to believe he will score more goals if he does.
Former United winger Lee Sharpe believes the club are lacking a “goalscoring machine” and, although he is a fan of both Rashford and Anthony Martial, the three-time Premier League winner wants to see his former club sign either Erling Haaland or Harry Kane.
Speaking to Stadium Astro, Sharpe said: “I think Haaland is unbelievable. I played with his dad at Leeds and he couldn’t score a goal if he tried and his son has come out as this prolific goalscoring machine – he’s absolutely unbelievable.
“I’d love to see him at Old Trafford but whoever signs him, if someone does at the end of this season, watch out. If Liverpool or Man City get him, I don’t think there is anyone to stop them going and winning the league.
“I think Martial on his day can be absolutely fantastic and then he can switch off and not look interested and stroll around the place.
“[Edinson] Cavani, years of experience and a great goalscorer, but I’m not sure he can do it week in, week out. He will be used as more of an impact sub. Rashford will chop and change from the middle to the wide position.
“I think the next thing for United is Haaland or someone like Harry Kane – a goalscoring machine because they do create so many chances.
“If you are a goalscorer, a natural goalscorer, you are going to get chances and you are going to score bagfuls at that club.”
