It has been stated that Real Madrid has been made aware of the developments surrounding Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford. He is allegedly contemplating his future at the club.
According to Fichajes, Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has appeared on the radar of Spanish giants Real Madrid ahead of the summer transfer season. Rashford may move away from Old Trafford in the summer.
Rashford, a product of the Manchester United academy, has been a member of the first-team system at Old Trafford for the last six years. He has made close to 300 appearances for the Red Devils. Rashford has 93 goals and provided 58 assists in the process. Aside from that, the 24-year-old has received 46 caps for the England national team. He has scored a total of 12 goals for the national team.
Rashford is suffering from a lack of game time
Rashford, widely considered as both the present and the future of this Manchester United team, has had a rough season in 2021/22 as a result of injuries. After being out for the first few months of the season due to an injury, the forward has failed to regain his previous levels of performance since returning to the field. So far, he has appeared in 24 games across all competitions. He has netted five goals in the process.
Consequently, Rashford’s playing time has suffered under interim manager Ralf Rangnick. He has opted to deploy a three-man frontline consisting of Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Anthony Elanga in recent weeks, rather than Rashford. As a result of his abrupt decrease in playing time, the Manchester United academy product has become dissatisfied. He is now examining his options for moving on from the club after the season.
Real Madrid has reportedly taken notice of this trend. They are now studying the possibilities of making a move for Rashford’s signature in the summer transfer window. No mystery exists that Los Blancos are actively seeking striking reinforcements. Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland are their top targets for the summer transfer window in particular.
Real Madrid do want to enforce their attacking options
The same cannot be said about Haaland. He is attracting interest from several other teams, notably Manchester City and Barcelona, even though Mbappe might join on a free transfer in the summer. If the Norwegian international decides to not move to Real Madrid, the Spanish club would be wise to suggest other alternatives.
Alexander Isak of Real Sociedad is also on Real Madrid’s shortlist for a move to the Bernabeu. The unexpected growth in the Rashford scenario, on the other hand, has drawn the attention of the current La Liga leaders. They are now considering making a move.
The Merengues, on the other hand, may not be able to afford a move at this time. While Rashford’s current market worth is €85 million, according to the report, it is possible that Manchester United would demand a price of between €100 and €120 million for him. Given that they have the option to extend his current contract, which ends in 2023, by another year. Real Madrid, on the other hand, would be unlikely to spend more than €60 million.
The 24-year-old England international will now have to wait and see what his future holds once the summer tournament begins. As of right now, Rashford is very upset with his current status at Manchester United. He will garner increasing amounts of attention as time goes on.
