Marcus Rashford prepared to leave Manchester United?
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has reportedly welcomed the interest from Real Madrid amid his struggles to cement a regular starting role under Jose Mourinho.
The England international has been one of United's most promising players since graduating through the youth setup in 2016 and he has gone on to score 34 goals from nearly 140 appearances in all competitions.
Despite this, there have been lingering doubts over his long-term future amid the inability to claim a regular starting spot and according to The Sun, Los Blancos are understood to have made contact with the player's agent.
The report adds that Rashford has been informed that he must secure regular gametime in order to keep his starting role with the Three Lions, where he has recently featured alongside Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane in the frontline.
Rashford presently has just 18 months remaining on his existing deal with United but the club have the option of an extension clause to prolong his stay for another year.
