Newcastle reportedly eyeing up Marcus Rashford

An update has emerged regarding Newcastle United transfer target Marcus Rashford… 

What’s the talk?

According to 90min, the England international is questioning his future at Old Trafford and may look to pursue an exit from the club at the end of the season. He is said to be frustrated with his game-time under Ralf Rangnick and is set for talks over his role in the team moving forward.

The report claims that the Magpies, along with Arsenal, Atletico Madrid and West Ham, are keeping tabs on his situation in the event that he does become available in the next transfer window.

Meanwhile, reports from Spain have claimed that the Red Devils want a fee of at least €100m (£83m) in order to part ways with the winger.

Lift the roof off

PIF can lift the roof off St James’ Park by striking a mega deal to sign the Englishman from Manchester United ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Newcastle demonstrated their ambition in the January transfer window as they swooped to sign Kieran Trippier from Champions League outfit Atletico Madrid. A player featuring in Europe’s premier competition and representing the champions of Spain opted to come and join a relegation battle with the Magpies, which sent out a statement on the club’s direction.

However, the prospective signing of Rashford would take it to the next level. Whilst Trippier is in his 30s and may have seen this move as his last career adventure, the Old Trafford forward is just 24 and has the majority of his career ahead of him to develop even further as a player.

Who scored more goals for Newcastle? An easy one to start...

In 293 games for the Red Devils, he has scored 93 goals and provided 58 assists. Last season, he was directly involved in 22 goals in 37 Premier League games, which shows that he has the quality to be a regular contributor in the final third, whilst United reporter Rich Fay dubbed him a “joy to watch”.

Rashford’s best campaign for goals and assists came in the 2019/20 season, when he scored 17 times and provided nine assists in just 31 league outings. These statistics offer a glimpse into the level of player that PIF would be bringing to Newcastle, and he still has plenty to offer at his young age.

Along with the reported £83m transfer fee, this is why he would be a huge statement signing and one which would have the fans at St James’ Park rocking with excitement, potentially blowing the roof off in the process. Eddie Howe would surely be delighted to have a player of Rashford’s proven quality and potential in his squad, so now it is down to PIF to get this deal over the line…
