Next year, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Barcelona are set to enter into a competitive battle for the acquisition of 26-year-old Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford, according to a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes.
Marcus Rashford, once regarded as one of England’s promising young talents, has experienced a tumultuous journey since his debut in the 2015/16 season for Manchester United.
Despite being a pivotal attacker last season, leading the team to an EFL Cup victory and a top-four finish in the Premier League, Rashford’s current season has seen a dip in performance.
With a modest record of two goals and four assists in 21 appearances, coupled with a market value of €70 million, his future at Manchester United has become uncertain.
The Blaugrana’s reported interest in a swap deal involving Raphinha has been challenged, and Barcelona, dealing with uncertainties surrounding Raphinha and Ferran Torres, is keen on Rashford’s qualities.
Meanwhile, PSG, facing challenges with Ousmane Dembele and Bradley Barcola’s performances, and the uncertain future of Kylian Mbappe, who is in the final year of his contract, also eyes Rashford as a potential target for the 2024 summer transfer window.
Juventus has joined the race alongside PSG and Barcelona for Rashford’s signature. However, the assertion that Rashford’s future at Manchester United is in jeopardy may lack substance.
Thus, the upcoming months will reveal whether a move to one of these European giants materializes for Rashford.
