Gary Pallister has been discussing the futures of two Manchester United stars amid ongoing transfer links.

Former Manchester United star Gary Pallister has warned Marcus Rashford “the grass isn’t always greener” amid transfer speculation linking the forward with an exit.

Rashford has been electric this season, becoming United’s top scorer with 25 goals in just 40 games across all competitions. The England international has come a long way since last season, when he came in for criticism amid the Red Devils’ poor form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

United will be delighted to see Rashford come into form, but it only adds pressure amid the 25-year-old’s uneasy contract situation. Rashford is only under contract until 2024, and that means the Red Devils could find themselves in a vulnerabe spot this summer if they can’t agree a new deal.

In the meantime, PSG have been linked with a move, but Pallister believes Rashford should be careful over a potential move to the French capital.

“Rashford’s put himself in a position where there’s a lot of European clubs looking at him,” he told Betting Sites. “He’s sorted his life out away from football because perhaps there was too much going on which muddied the water. I wouldn’t say he owes it to the club to sign but every Man Utd fan wants to see him stay. My gut feeling is that he will sign but if he’s thinking otherwise I’d say be careful, because the grass isn’t always greener.”

Elsewhere, Harry Maguire has struggled for game time this season, and he is another who is being linked with an exit.

“It’s a tough situation. Harry did well in the Euros and World Cup for England and it’s tough when people are shooting you down,” Pallister added.

“I had it in my time and you feel very isolated. It’s been a tough year but I don’t know who he feels about not being involved in the big games. After just seeing his side concede seven, maybe he’ll be feeling he’ll get a chance on Thursday but either way he has a big choice to make this summer on whether he stays or not.”
