Manchester United: Marcus Rashford hits his highest-ever market value

Marcus Rashford has been in the headlines non-stop this week after it was reported that he is considering his future at his boyhood club Manchester United, potentially leaving for a new challenge this summer, and there’s a chance that it actually could have come at the perfect time for the Glazers.

The 24-year-old, who has made 295 appearances over the last six years for the club, was left out of the starting line-up in the Manchester derby despite Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani both being absent from the squad. Instead, Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes was chosen to start in the centre-forward role against Pep Guardiola’s side, and it seems that this selection may have been the final straw for Rashford at Old Trafford.

It's now been eight years since Manchester United last won the Premier League crown. Do you remember everything that happened that season? First, who was the club's most expensive signing that season?

Less than 24 hours later after the initial claims about the Englishman’s future, Romano tweeted that the Mancunian forward – who was called “special” by Gary Lineker – would now consider his options due to a lack of game-time in the squad, which comes as no coincidence after his latest snub from Ralf Rangnick at the Ethiad Stadium on Sunday.

With that being said, the prospect of Rashford leaving the club is now a hot topic of conversation amongst many fans and the media. Indeed, the rumour mill already churning on his next move, with Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United reportedly interested in the forward.

Although Man United will not want to lose a homegrown talent who has offered so much to the team, this could be a perfect opportunity from a financial perspective to sell the 24-year-old, especially if they can’t resolve the current issues with him.

According to Transfermarkt, since his debut in February 2016, Rashford was originally valued at £2.7m a month later in March 2016. He has struggled to maintain his high standards and attacking output this season, but thanks to his longevity, consistency over the years and prime age, the 24-year-old is now rated at his highest-ever market value of £76.5m, which is a 2,733% increase in six years.

Sell or keep Marcus Rashford at MUFC?





Whilst the England international is currently at his prime market value, it could be a mutually beneficial outcome for both him and Manchester United if he is sold.

In that instance, the new manager to be appointed in the summer can use the profit made to sign a marquee striker to replace expected departees, including Paul Pogba – who looks set to leave the club on a free transfer when the season is over – and the out-of-favour Rashford, who in turn may enjoy more regular game-time elsewhere.
