Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has lately been in the news regarding transfer speculations.
Days earlier, the England star was linked with Juventus, after reports stated that the Serie A giants were eyeing the youngster.
Now, according to a report in The Sun, it has been learnt that the player is ready to talk to Spanish giants Real Madrid if he fails to win a regular first-team place under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
The reigning European champions are believed to have made contact with the England striker’s camp, and have reasoned their serious interest.
They have been monitoring Rashford for quite some time, and it is reported that some of the representatives from the club were present at the Wembley stadium to watch England versus Croatia in the UEFA Nations League.
The 21-year-old is a United academy product and is believed to have always been a loyal supporter of the club.
Rashford is concerned that he may not be progressing under Mourinho, after having started just 5 out of the 12 Premier League games this term. The player is valued in the region of £50 million, but his contract runs out at the end of next season.
United do have the option to trigger an extension, and seem confident in keeping their player. Further, he will also be offered a new deal to keep advances from clubs at bay.
The report also added that Real are keen on getting two signings. Besides Rashford, they are also monitoring a move for Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen.
