Report: Arsenal and Newcastle monitoring Marcus Rashford situation
Arsenal and Newcastle United are both lurking in the background with Marcus Rashford considering his Manchester United future, according to a report from 90min.
Rashford has had a tough time this season. He has only made nine starts in the Premier League, and scored four times.
90min reports that he has grown frustrated under Ralf Rangnick and now has questions about his future. Obviously, while Rangnick is set to hand the job to someone else this summer, the German will remain at Old Trafford beyond this season.
The report notes that Rashford is prepared to delay a decision on his future. He hopes to speak to Rangnick’s successor about their plans.
But should he decide to leave, a host of clubs would be interested. 90min reports that Arsenal, Newcastle and West Ham are all monitoring his situation.
Rashford could be an incredible signing for Arsenal or Newcastle
It would be a huge shock to see Rashford leave Manchester United. He obviously came through the youth ranks at Old Trafford and has been outstanding for a long time.
He is seven goals away from bringing up the century for the club in all competitions. Meanwhile, he has 58 assists for the side. And at 24, he should still be a few years away from his peak.
He has previously been labelled ‘world-class‘. So it would be a massive coup for the likes of Arsenal or Newcastle if they could sign Rashford and get him back to his best.
Certainly, it would be a huge gamble from the likes of Rangnick and the next manager if Manchester United let him leave in the summer.
His form has been a real concern for a while now. And it was ominous that he did not start the Manchester derby on Sunday.
But he still has the potential to be an incredible signing for some of his Premier League admirers.
