Could Marcus Rashford be on his way from Manchester United soon? Born and raised ‘Red’, the academy graduate is reportedly frustrated by his lack of playing time at Old Trafford, and speculation in the transfer rumor mill has revealed the striker has been linked with clubs in the Premier League and across Europe will.

He has scored just four goals in 19 Premier League games this season and, with the World Cup looming, he has also been left out of England’s youngest squad for friendlies against Switzerland and Côte d’Ivoire
Unless United give him assurances about his playing time, Rashford could sever his ties with the Old Trafford club. talkSPORT reported. And according to football journalist Fabrizio RomanoSources have said Rashford is “considering his future” and seeking “clarity”.
Despite the difficult season this season, United are ready to start contract talks with Rashford. ESPN reported. The player’s contract expires in the summer of 2023 but there is an option for a further year and United are keen to tie him down to a long-term deal. Sources told ESPN that Rashford is “open-minded about his future and in no rush to decide his next move.”
abuse and disorientation
During the pandemic, Rashford made headlines and received an MBE in recognition of his campaign to support vulnerable children. ESPN called. He successfully fought for free school meals provided during lockdown and “forced the government to make two U-turns to extend its support over the summer and winter holidays”. His campaign resulted in a policy change.
However, things have now gone awry for the striker on the pitch and he has been abused by some fans. “Feeding a few million hungry kids only buys you so much time when people decide you turned your back on half a chance against Aston Villa,” said Oliver Holt The Post on Sunday. Marginalizing Rashford “might be the worst mistake” United have made this decade. “Who can blame him for dealing with the abuse and disorientation at Old Trafford?”
Rashford is “at a crossroads” and considering whether to end his United career, Jamie Jackson said The guard. “There is a separation here, a transfer. The boy from Wythenshawe’s dream life has gone mad. It should never be like that.”
A “heartbreaking” decision?
With his future uncertain and his relationship with United deteriorating, Rashford has been linked with a move to Arsenal. The Gunners are “in the market for a forward” and will offer Rashford “an escape from Old Trafford this summer”. The mirror reported.

Whatever Rashford does, he will have to ‘think long and hard about his lifelong love affair’ with Man Utd. The mirror called. Because leaving the club he joined at the age of seven would be “heartbreaking”.
Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler faced a “similar agonizing dilemma at Anfield when he was at the peak of his powers”. After leaving for Leeds, he admitted he “never really came to terms with” the decision. “I know how Marcus will feel,” Fowler said. “He loves United like I love Liverpool and he’s going to think he can’t turn his back on the club he grew up at. But he has a big decision to make.”
