Man Utd could have big Marcus Rashford transfer problem next summer

Manchester United number 10 Marcus Rashford is quickly approaching the final two years of his contract with the Red Devils, meaning the summer of 2022 could pose quite the problem for the Red Devils.

Should United kick contract talks further down the road, they could face the daunting prospect of Rashford leaving the club for nothing in a couple of years time.

Those at the top of the Man Utd hierarchy would have been mildly alarmed by Rashford's recent comments in a recent interview with The Guardian, where he conceded he was open to the idea of playing abroad.

On the topic of playing his football in a foreign land, the United forward said: “I would never say no.

“I’m a big fan of Real Madrid and Barcelona because they’ve always had great players and played attractive football. Everybody watches Real Madrid and Barcelona.”

He continued, discussing how there are certain countries he still wants to experience, "When I was growing up, learning a language wasn’t deemed important in school. There wasn’t that expectation on you.

“Football has given me the opportunity to travel to different countries, and you have certain countries you like and want to learn more about, and learning a language is definitely a part of that.”

The striker has enjoyed a decent season in front of goal, ending the campaign with 11 Premier League strikes – the second best total of his career.

With that being said, he has a tendency to endure lengthy spells without finding the net – from February 28 until the end of the season on May 23, he scored just twice in the league.

Having burst on to the scene in such dramatic fashion as a teenager, he has garnered enough experience for the Stretford End faithful to expect more consistency from him.

However, Rashford has achieved more at the age of 23 both on and off the pitch than many footballers do in an entire career, United will undoubtedly know the level of talent they posses and try to keep him tied to Old Trafford for as long as possible.
