Newcastle are one of several Premier League clubs interested in taking Marcus Rashford on loan, and fans would absolutely love a swoop for the youngster.
According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle, Leicester and Everton are all eyeing a summer swoop for Rashford if Manchester United send the youngster out on loan.
The report from the Mail says Jose Mourinho has yet to decide whether or not to keep Rashford at the club next season, and the three clubs are all “among those lining up to take him on loan”.
The 20 year-old scored a sensational goal for England in the 2-0 win over Costa Rica, and grabbed seven goals and five assists in the Premier League last season, despite starting just 17 games.
The Red Devils’ wonderkid, valued at £58.5m by Transfermarkt, needs to be playing week in week out, and would love to be playing more centrally, where Romelu Lukaku is currently ahead in the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Rafael Benitez is on the hunt for a new goalscorer this summer, so could a loan deal for Rashford be perfect? Mike Ashley wouldn’t have to spend too much money, and the Magpies would get a hungry young star with bags of pace.
Fans have been having their say on Twitter, and you can find some of the best reactions down below…

I don’t believe it but i said a few weeks ago it wouldn’t surprise me if he was available for loan and he would definitely be welcome here.
