SHOCKING NEWS: live from old Trafford, Marcus Rashford future in doubts after club representatives has been seen in Italy trying to reach on a deal that will see Ac Milan star Raphael Leao move to Old Trafford. According to sources, Manchester United are aiming on bringing the Portuguese striker to Old Trafford. Rashford has endured a tough year on the pitch, scoring just eight goals for United in all competitions. Having managed 30 the previous campaign, that represents a major drop-off in form. Marcus Rashford 50-50 to stay at Manchester United as transfer dilemma emerges.


Marcus Rashford’s future is poised to be a major topic of discussion this summer. As Manchester United undergoes a significant squad overhaul, several players, including Rashford, are being considered for transfer.

Rashford has had a challenging year, scoring only eight goals in all competitions for United, a sharp decline from the 30 goals he netted in the previous season. His perceived lack of effort and attitude has drawn criticism from pundits and fans alike. In one notable incident, during the penultimate game of the Premier League season at Old Trafford, Rashford confronted a United supporter who was criticizing him during the warm-up, reflecting his struggles after an impressive 2022/23 campaign.

His exclusion from Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2024 was unsurprising given his form but marked a setback for a player who had shone at the World Cup.

Speculation about United potentially cashing in on Rashford this summer has been fueled by his performance and the scrutiny surrounding him. Ineos is conducting a comprehensive review of the first team, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe appointing key figures to revamp the club’s football operations. In April, the Manchester Evening News reported that only four players—Andre Onana, Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho, and Rasmus Hojlund—were safe from being sold, with United open to offers for the rest, including Rashford and captain Bruno Fernandes.

A survey by MEN Sport, with over 56,000 responses, revealed that a slight majority (51%) of fans prefer Rashford to be sold, while 49% want him to stay. Fans showed a stronger preference for keeping Amad, with 88% voting to retain him, compared to Rashford. This suggests a divided fanbase regarding Rashford’s future.

United face a dilemma this summer. Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations will likely impact their ability to completely revamp the squad, necessitating player sales to fund new signings. Rashford, as a homegrown player, would represent pure profit for the club, making him a lucrative candidate for transfer. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with the 26-year-old, although Rashford has expressed no immediate desire to leave Old Trafford. Before taking a break from social media, he reaffirmed his commitment via his X account, stating, “I plan to rest and reset mentally after a challenging season individually and collectively. Thanks to the fans that stood by me through a difficult period. To the ones that didn’t just remember at United, we always stick together.”

Regardless of who stays, United intends to bolster their attack this summer, seeking a forward to support and compete with Hojlund and potentially a right winger like Michael Olise. While the majority of fans would like to see Antony leave, with only 17% wanting to keep him, the split opinion on Rashford’s future indicates a significant decision for United should a substantial offer for him arise.
