With Manchester United flying under new interim manager
A few months ago Real Madrid were rumoured to have approached the Red Devils about a potential summer transfer for the England international, which grabbed the attention of Los Blancos’ rivals Barcelona, who also had Rashford on their radar.
Rashford was apparently open to talks with Barcelona and Real amid concern over his playing position under Jose Mourinho, but the Sun report that the change in manager has inspired the 21-year-old to dismiss the idea of moving to La Liga and remain with his boyhood club.
Rashford has been in blistering form of late, scoring two goals in his last three games, though there was some cause for concern after he limped off during United’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday evening.
However, Solkskjaier has said that he expects Rashford to be fit for United’s next match against Newcastle United on Wednesday:
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects Marcus Rashford to be fit to face #NUFC despite going off on Sunday, but Marcos Rojo will be missing for #MUFC along with fellow defenders Eric Bailly & Chris Smalling. Matteo Darmian is set to be third-choice centre-back
