It is no secret that Marcus Rashford has been less than happy with Manchester United in recent times. While some claim that issues with Erik ten Hag have played a crucial role, the fact of the matter is that Rashford has hardly been at the top of his game when compared to last season. This has led many to speculate that a departure may be soon at hand. So, where might this talented forward be headed? Rumours have been circulating about three potential destinations. Let’s take a closer look at each.
Rumours in regard to a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain began circulating as far back as March 2023. One of the reasons why this move could make a great deal of sense for PSG involves their willingness to pay astronomically high figures for stellar players. Furthermore, this club certainly has the finances to satisfy the possible demands of Rashford. Considering that his salary with Man United has been a sticking point in the past, PSG could very well represent a viable option.
Another possibility could include Barcelona. Indeed, Barça was considering Rashford as a replacement for Lionel Messi when he left the organisation back in 2021. Since this time, Barcelona has hardly been at the top of their game. Many feel that they could use a bit of new blood; especially in terms of offence. The fact that Rashford has already proven his talents as a forward is therefore one of his most appealing aspects to the blaugranas. Might Barcelona take advantage of such an opportunity in the hopes of once again dominating top flight matches (a situation that has been sorely missed by fans and players alike)? We will have to wait and see.
Juventus is yet another team that could very well benefit from the presence of Rashford on the pitch. As this club is currently in desperate need of a solid attacker, he could represent an excellent addition. The only possible issue is that Juventus does not possess the “deep pockets” associated with PSG. This could present a problem if Rashford pushes for a high salary, as he has already done in Manchester. If Juventus wishes to return to the forefront of Serie A, they might very well be forced to dish out large sums of money. The verdict is still out in terms of whether Rashford would even be open to such an opportunity.
While rumours still abound, it is important to briefly mention another piece to this puzzle. Rashford has been less than enthusiastic in recent times and this has begun to impact his performance on the pitch. This could cause some organisations to doubt whether or not such “demons” will follow him even after a transfer has been completed.
Marcus Rashford nonetheless possesses a massive amount of talent. If the right club is able to snatch him up, we could very well see his talents reemerge in short order.
