However, the England international has managed to score four goals and one assist in six games under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
According to reports, the Red Devils are making such decision as they look to block Real Madrid and Juventus interests.
Meanwhile, former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp admits Mourinho had put Rashford in inconsistent form.
Manchester United are ready to double Marcus Rashford’s wages to £150,000 a week in an effort to prevent Europe’s top clubs from making a move for the 21-year-old England forward this summer.

“For the first time in his career, Marcus Rashford is playing like he truly belongs in a Manchester United shirt,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“Earlier in the season he was in and out of the team and that led to inconsistent performances in front of goal. He looked better for England than he did for United.”
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has put his trust in Rashford, given him a run in the team and is now reaping the rewards.”
“There is a swagger, an arrogance about the way Rashford leads the line. He no longer hesitates when put through on goal.”
“As he raced on to Paul Pogba’s brilliant pass at Wembley, you could see in Rashford’s eyes that he knew he would hit the net.”

Rashford, whose current deal ends in the 2020 summer, will make his 150th appearance for United on Saturday against Brighton.
The young prodigy has made his first team debut on 25 February 2016 for the Europa League clash with Midtjylland in which he scored two goals in the second-half.
