After losing the first two games, Manchester United have won four league games on the trot, defeated the league leaders and are now just three points from the top.
In the recent success, a lot of the credit goes to Marcus Rashford, who has been absolutely brilliant under the management of Erik ten Hag.
The star attacker had an average last campaign and it must be remembered that his current contract at Old Trafford will expire in less than a year.
In such a scenario, as per La Repubblica, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid are interested in hiring the services of the England international.
The renowned Italian news source have mentioned that agreeing terms worth 12 million euros a year i.e. around £202,000 a week (excluding bonuses) would not be a problem for the new Blues owners.
For now, Rashford’s priority is to agree a new contract with the Red Devils but in case the talks break down, it is reported that Chelsea will move in as early as January to ensure that they eventually sign him.
Last season, the 24-year-old forward directly contributed in 7 goals (5 goals and 2 assists) for Man Utd in over 30 appearances.
This time around, in the last four league games, the 46-capped international has already netted 3 goals and provided 2 assists to earn maximum points for Ten Hag.
Cavani is already gone and Ronaldo will not be at the club for long, so, the Dutch manager must do everything to hold on to Marcus Rashford. It will be a massive setback if he ends up moving to Stamford Bridge.
