Rashford to reject Real Madrid advances to stay at Manchester United

Marcus Rashford is set to reject the advances of Real Madrid to stay at his boyhood club, Manchester United.

Real Madrid have been linked with making a move for the 21-year-old England international after he had struggled to make a significant impact under Jose Mourinho.

While Rashford made plenty of appearances under the Portuguese, a good chunk of those came from the bench, and he was often played out of position on the wings.

However, he has enjoyed a rejuvenation of form under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, taking a central role in Manchester United’s improved form, scoring two and assisting one of United’s 12 goals under the Norwegian.

While he was reportedly open to a potential move the the Bernabeu, The Sun claim that he is now ready to reject the advances of the 13 time European champions, and is ‘determined’ to stay at Old Trafford.

Rashford limped out of United’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, but he is expected to be fit again for Sunday’s trip to Newcastle.

Solskjaer said: “I think he’ll be OK. He’s been working so hard and he’s been a bit tired. I think he’ll be alright.”
