Rashford broke into the United squad in the 2015-16 season, scoring five goals in 11 Premier League appearances.

The 20-year-old scored the same amount the following term in 32 games, while he managed to find the back of the net seven times last season having made 35 league caps.

Rashford got his first goal in the Premier League at the weekend in United's embarrassing 3-1 defeat to West Ham.

The bookies have the England striker as short as 5/1 to leave Old Trafford in January.

Speaking to Sky Sports Super Six, Neville said: "The idea of Marcus Rashford leaving United is a nonsense.

"I don't know a player that came into the first team at 18 to 20 that didn't get left out, brought on as a sub or moved position.

"Whether that was me, I went from right back to centre back. I was a centre back when I was a young kid, I got moved to right back then I got moved back to centre back.

"My brother was the same, John O'Shea was the same, Darren Fletcher was the same, Paul Scholes got moved from centre-forward to left side to central-midfield when he first came in and did so continuously throughout his career."

The Sky Sports pundit continued: "The idea of saying is he going to become the main man, Wayne Rooney got moved from the left side and then to the centre and then to the right.

"It happens, this is not a younger player problem in terms of Marcus Rashford is not cheated at Manchester United, I think he is having a great development path."
