£60m offer accepted, Erik ten Hag ultimatum – Marcus Rashford Manchester United future verdict given

Manchester United face a big decision over the future of Marcus Rashford this summer.

The Red Devils’ forward has struggled for form this campaign, on the back of his best-ever campaign for the club, leading to questions over what the future holds for Rashford.

When questioned on his attitude, the 26-year-old has often made a habit of silencing his critics by responding with a strong performance. One accustation the Wythenshawe-born attacker cannot shrug off, however, is his career appears to be at somewhat of a crossroads ahead of the transfer window.

A goal return of eight in 40 appearances for the England international has left some supporters ready to accept a parting of ways, though not everyone is convinced Rashford’s time is up.

Dwight Yorke

“Marcus Rashford is 26 years old, he still has time, why wouldn’t you give, arguably, your best player time? Okay, he’s not performed like the best player at the club recently, but why would you sell him, unless he wants to move himself? A hard conversation needs to be held with Rashford by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Erik ten Hag or the manager next season, to figure out what he wants to do,” Yorke told the MEN via TVSportGuide. “You want to hear from Rashford’s mouth ‘I want to stay and fight at the club’. He’s 26 years old, coming into his prime, why would you get rid of him? There’s still so much more to come from the kid, it’s a load of nonsense if anyone wants to sell him now. He can still turn it around.”

Giuseppe Rossi

“I said at the start of the season on my podcast that Marcus Rashford needed time to get back to his world class level, but he’s had a lot of time and he’s still not performing,” Rossi said via DAZN. “There’s something missing and I don’t think we should blame the players around him. He needs to play at his best level so his team-mates can rise up to that standard.

“When you think about the best players in recent years, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, they maintained their success and always elevated the players around them.

“Marcus Rashford just seems a bit distracted at the moment and that doesn’t help when he needs to be taking on more responsibility. Sometimes players are scared when playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has to start being the leader again and demanding the ball. I hope we haven’t but we might’ve seen the best of Marcus Rashford last season, I hope not.
