Real Madrid Ready To Launch Audacious Bid For Manchester United's Most Valuable Asset
If Jose Mourinho doesn't keep his eye on the ball then Manchester United could potentially lose one of their premier players to Real Madrid in a bumper £50m deal.
Marcus Rashford has struggled to nail down a regular first-team spot since Mourinho's arrival, but while the England international often features in matches for the Red Devils he is often played out of position or unleashed from the substitutes bench and the 21-year-old homegrown talent could look for a move away from Old Trafford.
With only five Premier League starts this campaign, Rashford is at a time in his career where he needs to be gaining significant game time and it's the Spanish giants Real that could be looking to offer the exciting attacking star a route out of Old Trafford and a move to La Liga.
The Sun are reporting that Real's scouts watched Rashford blossom in England's 2-1 UEFA Nations League win over Croatia at Wembley at the weekend and it's reported that Real boss Santiago Solari is a huge fan of Rashford and he is lining up a daring bid for the talented youngster, as he looks to reignite Real's attacking force and Solari could well be lining up a move for Rashford.
The La Liga heavyweights are currently sixth in the division and have failed to deal with the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer as they have only netted 20 goals in their opening 12 league matches and Solari feels Rashford can bring some much-needed youth into Real's ageing squad.
As well as Rashford, Real are also looking at bringing Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen to the Bernabeu in what will be a combined £90m deal for the Danish superstar and Rashford in what could be one of the biggest double-deal in the last few seasons.
