Despite his poor form, Marcus Rashford could be offered a new contract, according to rumours.
The attacker has had a poor season at Old Trafford, displaying a lack of confidence and self-belief in his performances. The England international has only started one of the club’s previous six league games and hasn’t scored since January.
Rashford has five goals for United in 27 games this season. For the first time since breaking into the first team in early 2016, he is on track to fall short of double digits.
If a one-year extension is granted, his current deal will keep him in Manchester until 2024. United, on the other hand, appears eager to reaffirm their faith in the striker by providing him a new contract to replace his present one.
According to ESPN, this comes after the club attempted to urge Rashford to minimize his off-field activities in order to focus more on his football. The player appeared to reject this suggestion.
According to the article, United players have long been dissatisfied with the club’s coaching standards. Rashford is undecided about staying at Old Trafford, and he is concerned about how highly the next permanent United manager would regard him.
Meanwhile, according to the Daily Mail, United is keeping an eye on Christian Eriksen. Following his on-field cardiac attack at Euro 2020, it was questioned whether the midfielder would be able to return to his prior levels.
However, three goals and an assist in his previous four outings for club and country have allayed any fears. According to the source, the Dane has been displaying the class that football fans have come to expect from him in recent years, to the point where United and his previous club Tottenham are exploring summer bids.
Because of the apparent interest, Brentford manager Thomas Frank has expressed his wish for Eriksen to sign a new contract with the Bees. In January, the 30-year-old signed a short-term contract and will be a free agent at the conclusion of the season.
Inter Live claims that United is considering a £50 million bid for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic. For several years, the 27-year-old has been the engine of the Italian club, scoring goals and providing assists in equal measure.
With Lazio in sixth place, the Serb has nine goals and nine assists in 30 Serie A appearances this season. Knowing United’s desire for central midfielders this summer, the club is apparently planning to hold out for roughly £67 million.
