Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are breathing a sign of relief today after their concerns about losing a quality first-team asset were quelled.
The 18-year-old has put his name in lights in Manchester after a tremendous breakthrough onto the first-team scene, where he’s scored seven goals in 12 appearances for Louis Van Gaal’s top-four chasing side.
His latest effort was the winner against Aston Villa at the weekend, which relegated the Premier League’s bottom club to the Championship, whilst he also netted the opener last week as United reached the FA Cup semi-finals at the expense of West Ham.
United have remained confident of penning Rashford down to a new deal, despite rival interest from Manchester City and Fiorentina, and he’ll continue to be a crucial asset in the push for Champions League football.
However, our landlord remains concerned for the player’s future as he feels United will spend a lot in the transfer market this summer and that could push the teenager down the pecking order.
Should Rashford be a starter every week for Man United? Let us know in the comments below!
