Marcus Rashford is rumoured to be a target for Real Madrid

Manchester United and Real Madrid fans alike reacted with incredulity when the rumours of Marcus Rashford being a Real Madrid target broke. Zinedine Zidane apparently sent scouts to watch the United teen sensation against Scotland but given that he didn’t get minutes for the Three Lions, Real Madrid will have to wait to watch Rashford in action. 

The youngster’s meteoric rise after starting as a relative unknown to rescue Manchester United’s Europa League campaign has been the stuff of fairytales, and moving to Real Madrid would truly be the icing on the cake. If the move does materialise, Real Madrid can look forward to a player that could become one of the greatest players in the world.

Here are 5 reasons why Marcus Rashford would be perfect for Real Madrid.

#1 Availability

Let’s get the biggest stumbling block to Real Madrid’s purchase of Marcus Rashford out of the way – Los Blancos are under a transfer ban for the next two windows. Oddly enough, this makes Marcus Rashford much more of a legitimate a target for the La Liga giants, as it is far more likely that a young player will be on an upward curve when they can sign players.

One year is a long time in football – Rashford could be afforded the chance to further his development right until Madrid can swoop in and offer him the move in January 2018. Conversely, it could also ensure that Rashford has enough time to grow frustrated with the limited opportunities he gets under Jose Mourinho, especially with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line.

As for Real Madrid, they are probably already aware that prising Rashford away from his boyhood club will be a tall ask. Yet for the likes of Florentino Perez, a massive sum will not be out of Real Madrid’s capabilities – Manchester United would be sufficiently tempted if Rashford is keen on leaving for more playing time and Madrid offer a suitably huge fee.
