Marcus Rashford to stay at Manchester United?

In a season that has been, Manchester United could still end it with a trophy and a top-four finish should things go their way. Still, it’s a long shot for them to make it back to the Champions League, and crucial to them achieving that would be the form of Marcus Rashford.

The 26-year-old star has struggled at the club, and many have questioned his desire. Plenty of criticism has been directed towards Rashford, with suggestions that he’s not fit to be the primary man at Manchester United.

Rashford remains Manchester United’s third highest-paid star behind Casemiro and Raphael Varane, as the contract signed last July will take his stay until 2028. On the field, he has not been at his best, and compared to the previous season’s 30 goals in all competitions, the 26-year-old star only has 7 to his name in this campaign.

There have been plenty of rumours about a move away from the club, although Manchester United are not interested in selling their homegrown star. Ben Jacobs on Give Me Sport explains some of the club’s speculation but insists that Rashford remains committed to Manchester United and that the 26-year-old star will stay at the club.

Jacobs said, “There are quite a few moving parts. The biggest one is that, ultimately, things will settle under Ratcliffe and INEOS. Rashford will understand whether Ten Hag is still his manager, where Manchester United are at the end of the season, and where his form is.

“He will have a clear vision over the off-season as he looks to get back to his best and, if Ten Hag stays, develop an evolving and stronger relationship.”

“I’m not in any way implying that it is weak, irreparable or broken, but he will have to develop that if Ten Hag is the manager for the long-term future at Manchester United. Of course, if that manager changes, you must also set the tone with a new manager.”

“There are a lot of unknowns for Marcus Rashford, but the only real known thing at this stage is that he is committed to the club. He wants to stay, and that is why he signed a new long-term deal.”

Which clubs are interested in Rashford?

A player of Rashford’s quality will have plenty of suitors, which remains valid with the 26-year-old star. Real Madrid are reportedly keen, while some Premier League sides like Arsenal have also seen links before with the winger.

PSG remain interested, and are considered his most significant and most probable suitor of all. The Parisians have had an eye on the 26-year-old star for some time, considering him a replacement for Kylian Mbappe. There have been plenty of debates from fans across social media about whether Manchester United should accept a massive bid for Rashford. For now, he will stay put at Old Trafford.
