Following the recent news saying Marcus Rashford is considering his future at Manchester United, it’s now time for the Spanish media to jump on this story.
Outlet Fichajes shows up today claiming the forward’s situation has put Real Madrid ‘in a state of alert’. It’s known that Florentino Perez likes the 24-year-old and that could open some possibilities for the summer.
It’s said the Santiago Bernabeu side seem willing to ‘open the doors’ in case Rashford presses Manchester United for a cheap exit, and even though Real Madrid are currently waiting for Kylian Mbappe, who could join them for free this summer, they now ‘do not rule out’ making a bid for the English star.
Rashford’s price, however, is said to be a ‘true problem’. Fichajes points out he’s currently valued at €85m, with Manchester United demanding between €100m and €120m.
Real Madrid, however, wouldn’t spend anywhere near that much, as their intention would be for the player to ‘press’ the club in his final year of contract (although they do have an option to extend by a year), so the Red Devils ‘accept his departure for a figure not exceeding €60m’.
That, though, seems very unlikely from Rashford, who, even if he does want to leave, is unlikely to kick up a fuss by disrespecting his childhood club.
