Reports: Real Madrid want €65 million Manchester United superstar
- But do Real Madrid actually need him?
What’s the rumour?
In case you didn’t know…
The young Englishman has a contract with the Red Devils that expires in the summer of 2020. According to Transfermarkt, his value is currently at €65 million and it could go even higher if he continues performing like the way he has been under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The heart of the matter
According to a report from Le10Sport, Real Madrid know of his contractual situation and have, hence, eyed him to strengthen their attack. They then cited a report from the Metro, which claimed that the Red Devils are confident that their talented youngster will sign a long-term deal.
The report from the English outlet also revealed that United have offered the Englishman a deal worth £150,000-per-week but are aware that they might need to offer him somewhere close to what they offered Anthony Martial, which is around £190,000-per-week.
Rumour probability/rating: 6.5/10
While there is no doubt that Manchester United would want to sign him in a long-term deal and that the youngster would be keen on signing it now that Jose Mourinho is no longer at the Theatre of Dreams, it seems quite far-fetch that Real Madrid would be interested in Rashford when they already have Vinicius coupled with the arrival of Rodrygo Goes in the summer.
Marcus Rashford is actually enjoying a very good time right now. He seems to have found the best version of himself under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has preferred him as the center-forward over Romelu Lukaku.Published 16 Feb 2019, 18:15 IST
