Man United are undergoing a poor spell in the league, taking 9 points out of a possible 18 from the last six matches. The Red Devils are in the middle of a transition as they look for a permanent replacement for Ralf Ragnick.

 

The transition could see some old guards leave the Manchester side with Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Eric Bailly set to leave at the end of the season.


Marcus Rashford is the latest addition to the list of departures as a report from The Times suggests that the 24-year-old is considering a move away from his boyhood club among interest from PSG.

The French giants, currently managed by Mauricio Pochettino, who is one of the candidates in line to replace Ralf Ragnick as United manager, are interested in acquiring the player’s signature.

 

Jadon Sancho’s upturn in form saw Rashford slide down the pecking order, often starting games on the bench. Moreover, he no longer gets to play on his preferred left flank, courtesy of the £72 million summer signing.    

 

Despite a poor run of form, the United academy graduate is a highly rated talent, and clubs across Europe acknowledge his potential. With Mbappe snubbing PSG’s attempts to keep him in Paris, Marcus Rashford could be his potential replacement at the club, given their similar role. 

 

With only 18 months on his contract, United are wary that a decision must be made by the end of the season, failing which, they could see him leave on a free transfer.
