For years, Marcus Rashford has been considered as the future of Manchester United. Thus, it came as a huge surprise when rumours emerged recently that the youngster might be questioning his own future at the club. He has not played a lot of football under the management of Ralf Rangnick and is believed to be unhappy with his situation at the club right now.
Of course, if Rashford was to leave, there would not be any lack of suitors for his signature. In fact, the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle United and West Ham United are already being rumoured to have an interest, while clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with him in the past as well.
If Rashford was to leave, it would be considered a blow for Manchester United. Despite his inconsistent performances this season, there is no question that he has been a key player for the club for years.
"“He doesn’t look happy at United, I’ve got to be honest. I watch Marcus and I feel like he has got the weight of the world on his shoulders.“He doesn’t look happy and I don’t know what it is. The Marcus Rashford that came in… that is Man United. When he blazed through, he came in and you thought ‘oh my God, this is another product off that youth team conveyor belt coming through with energy, with spark, with quality, with class, aggression and a work ethic’.“Those things I have mentioned just there are not what I am seeing with Marcus right now and I think if he was brutally honest with himself, I think he would admit that he hasn’t been on it.”"
Rashford has struggled to get into the Manchester United starting XI recently
While Rashford has been a key player for Manchester United for a long time, one has to admit that he has not been at the top of his game for a while now.
He returned from injury and started in brilliant fashion but that form has faded away since then. Recently, he has been struggling to get consistent minutes in Rangnick’s team.
Rangnick’s run as interim manager is expected to come to an end at the end of the season, but Rashford’s long-term future at Manchester United could depend a lot on the club’s next permanent manager, who is expected to be appointed in the summer.
