Newcastle, Tottenham & more amongst favourites to sign Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford did not have the best of 2021/22 campaigns. It started out with the forward missing the beginning of the season to recover from shoulder surgery.

Rashford then returned in October, but never really found his form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Ralf Rangnick.

He scored just five and assisted two in 32 outings for the Red Devils across the campaign, a serious drop off from 2020/21.

On why Rashford struggled so badly, Ralf Rangnick, whilst interim manager, pointed to a lack of confidence:

"Marcus, it’s no secret that he is not having his best time right now, it has to do with rhythm and confidence as well, yeah, again it’s our job to help him to get this confidence back and that is why I decided to bring him on," the German explained in April.

"In the end he has to do it himself obviously, but the only thing we can do is speak to him regularly and tell him what we expect from him and what he should do. The rest has to be done by himself. "There are quite a few examples this season of players, some of them are still here with us and one or two of them are no longer here, have shown that it is possible to develop within a couple of weeks a level of confidence where you can be a different player again. We all know that Marcus can play better, but again in the end the steps he has to take himself."

Now, with a new regime in place at United, there has been some speculation that Rashford could depart this summer.

The current favourites to sign the English international are Newcastle United, who are priced at 4/1 with Betfair.
