Marcus Rashford's time at Manchester United is up, according to talkSPORT presenter Simon Jordan, who believes the striker is "no longer a superstar" amid rumours surrounding his future.

The 24-year-old forward continues to be linked with a move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

In fact, Rashford's representatives [his brother and agent Dwaine] has already engaged in talks with PSG, although Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said on Friday that he doesn't want to lose the player.

Plenty of people have had their say on Rashford's future in recent days, including former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan.

Jordan thinks the academy graduate needs "a change of direction" and has compared his inconsistent performances to another Manchester United player.

“The problem with Marcus Rashford is that he has been built up in the minds of many people that watch him, or don’t watch him, at a level that he’s not really at,” he told talkSPORT.

“At that level he’s been judged at, his standards have diminished when really and truly he’s a good player capable of playing for Manchester United and England.

“But he’s not this superstar world-beater that people have alluded to and put him on a pedestal.

“If I’m Manchester United – given what I’ve seen from him and given the fact his agent is at it – I’d send him to PSG in a cab.”

Jordan added: “I think Marcus Rashford’s time at Manchester United is done.

“I think he needs a change of direction. I think his performances have been entirely based upon his outlook and attitude, with some of it being situations of the field – not necessarily meaning his charitable work.

“I think there is a change required. People like Marcus Rashford are beginning to fall into a camp that Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial have fallen into, which is bags and bags of ability but not enough delivery on a regular basis.

“United need better.”

You can see the full clip from Friday's talkSPORT show below.

As mentioned earlier, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants Rashford to stay at Old Trafford.

"He’s really important, you have seen from the first day I'm here," the Dutchman said. "I'm really happy with him, and I don't want to lose him. He's definitely in our plans at Manchester United."
