Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is reportedly ready to discuss the possibility of leaving Old Trafford in the next summer transfer market. In an interview, he acknowledged Barcelona and Real Madrid as his favorite clubs.
Marcus Rashford sticks out as the main target of the Catalan giants. Blaugrana president Joan Laporta is believed to have identified him as the ideal recruit as a step towards rebuilding Barcelona’s glory.
Including three goals and one assist in 12 games this season.
The 24-year-old has just over 18 months remaining on his Manchester contract, and according to EFE, the forward is starting to think about a new challenge outside his home country.
Playing at a club as big as Barcelona has been his dream for a long time. The new Barca coach, Xavi reportedly likes Marcus Rashford’s playing style as a wing striker. He is sure, Rashford will be able to adapt to tiki taka.
Nothing is impossible
Speaking to The Guardian , Rashford confirmed a possible move away from Manchester United. He mentioned two clubs from the Spanish League, namely Barcelona and Real Madrid , who would be his new ports if he left the Red Devils.
They always have great players and play attractive football. Everyone watches Real Madrid and Barcelona,” he explained.
Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, and Edinson Cavani have contracts only until June 2022. This means that in January 2021 they are allowed to discuss pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs.
Lingard has come to the club’s attention because of a local player and the fact that United didn’t sell him last summer when West Ham United were interested in paying £30m seems ridiculous now. However, Lingard is indeed difficult to compete because United have many players in the same position with good quality.
Pogba is the biggest name on this list, even though his reputation and branding potential are far more valuable to Manchester United than his contribution on the pitch. Real Madrid are said to have held secret talks with the midfielder.
Could their departure be followed by Marcus Rashford?
