“I don’t think the fans are totally behind him”
Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has urged Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford to leave the Red Devils this summer.
French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have been linked with a surprise move for the underachieving England international.
Rashford has struggled for both form and fitness lately and endured a difficult start to the new season.
Cascarino has claimed the Manchester United academy graduate should consider the move as he believes the fans no longer support the striker.
The former Republic of Ireland striker has insisted the Red Devils are unable to turn down a lucrative offer for their number 10. He believes Rashford has already entered the final year of his contract at Old Trafford. He said talkSPORT:
“What would be the price? He is in the last year of his contract, is that something United can refuse?
“I think he needs to walk away from Manchester United. I don’t believe the fans are totally behind him.”
Cascarino claimed Rashford’s play had been affected by the negative vibes in the dressing room and a move could help get his career back on track.
“Of course they want him to do well, he’s a boy from Manchester and they want to see him do well. The atmosphere is bad at Man United and can he play in this toxic atmosphere at the football club ?”
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford desperately needs to get his game back
Marcus Rashford has become a sensation since breaking into the Manchester United first team at a very young age.
In a very short time, the striker has become the poster child for his boyhood club as well as an integral part of the English setup.
However, the float-toed striker has looked like a shadow of himself since last season as he scored just five goals in 31 games across all competitions.
New manager Erik ten Hag has shown his faith in Rashford following his summer appointment, but the striker hasn’t done that justice.
Like most of his teammates, Rashford has had an unforgettable start to the season. He needs to improve if the Red Devils are to recover from a difficult start to the campaign.
With his contract expiring in the summer of 2023, we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for the England international.
