Man Utd could be ‘forced to sell’ £80million star with Real Madrid interested

Manchester United could be forced to sell star forward Marcus Rashford, with Real Madrid believed to be interested, according to reports.

The England star has been in rejuvenated form for Erik ten Hag's Man Utd side this term and has also replicated his club performances on the biggest stage.

The 25-year-old scored three goals as England qualified top of Group B at the Qatar World Cup, including a brilliant brace against Wales in the Three Lions’ final group stage game.

Meanwhile, the forward has scored eight goals in all competitions for the Red Devils.

With Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure confirmed, Man Utd are likely to become more reliant on Rashford’s goal-scoring ability as they look to secure Champions League qualification for next season.


However, Rashford is attracting interest on the continent and could be prized away by one of Europe’s elite clubs.

Real Madrid keen

According to the Daily Star, Rashford is attracting interest from La Liga giants Real Madrid as he enters the final six months of his current deal, believed to be worth £200,000 a week.

Los Blancos have reportedly long been admirers of the England man, and are front of the queue to secure his services. The report claims that Carlo Ancelotti’s side consider Rashford to be a potential Karim Benzema successor.

While the Man Utd star has the option to extend his existing deal by another year, Man Utd are struggling to secure Rashford to a fresh contract. Man Utd have reportedly offered a new contract worth a basic £300,000 a week, that the forward is yet to have signed.

If Rashford does not put pen to paper, Man Utd are expected to listen to offers for the homegrown talent in the region of £80million, rather than let him wind down the additional 12 months and then leave for free the following summer.
