Manchester United are worried that striker Marcus Rashford will suffer from burnout during the 2016/17 season. 

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the club are likely to put him on a tailored pre-season to make sure that he stays at peak fitness for the full campaign. 

Rashford, 18, only made his debut for the club back in February but quickly established himself as a leading player under Louis van Gaal's guidance.

Indeed, the striker went on to score five goals in 11 Premier League games, while he also found the back of the net in Europe and the FA Cup. 

It wasn't exactly a major surprise, then, that he forced his way into the England squad for Euro 2016. 

Rashford burnout 

In fact, Rashford came off the bench to help the Three Lions overcome Wales by two goals to one in their last tournament outing. 

But it appears that the United hierarchy are growing concerned over the youngster. 

With former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho set to begin yet another new era at the Theatre of Dreams, it certainly looks set to be an interesting period for Rashford. 

Mourinho will be desperate to handle the youngster correctly as he goes in search of turning him into a world-class striker. 

It has been well documented that the Special One wants to bring Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the club, but it remains to be seen as to whether that potential deal will have an influence on the development of Rashford.
