After reports claiming that Cristiano Ronaldo wants either David de Gea or Thibaut Courtois in goal at Real Madrid, the Portuguese international has now set his eyes on one more player.
Interestingly, the United legend wants versatile forward Marcus Rashford in Madrid colours, as per Spanish outlet Don Balon.
The club is genuinely interested in Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, but if they fail to land their prime target, a move for Rashford could be possible. Both Kane and Rashford have been in superb form this season, and are garnering interest from the European champions.

Rashford provides enough options for Jose Mourinho at United, as he can operating on the left-wing, and also as a back-up striker to Romelu Lukaku.
Ronaldo is said to be wanting a player with pace and skills, and feels Rashford could provide the solution in adding more depth, as Real want to continue to dominate European football.
Further reports claim that the 19-year-old could also be a long-term prospect for manager Zinedine Zidane once Karim Benzema bows out.
Meanwhile, back-to-back Premier League Golden Boot winner Harry Kane is said to be president Florentino Perez’s no.1 choice. Kane has been growing from strength to strength, and his handful of consistent goals are making him reach the same level as the world’s best strikers.
But what is interesting is that both Spurs and United are in no mood to part ways with their key players. Ronaldo’s choice of players for Real is top notch, but whether any of these targets come to the Santiago Bernabeu next summer is a thing for the fans to look out for.
