Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford isn’t interested in any move to Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old England international has been linked with a switch to the Bernabeu although those rumours appear to be largely speculative in nature.
The Sun claims that Jose Mourinho’s sacking and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as interim manager means a move to the Bernabeu has been ruled out by Rashford. The paper adds that contact had been made with his representatives. These are likely to have been made by third-party agents who may or may not have been working on behalf of Real Madrid.
In truth, the chances of Manchester United sanctioning any such move are close to zero. The club have a habit of only selling players that are surplus to requirements. Rashford is very much a part of the squad. His form has improved since Mourinho’s departure and he has scored twice in the Norwegian’s three games in charge.
United take on Newcastle United at St James’s Park on Wednesday evening but Solskjaer isn’t being carried away with a 100 percent record since he was appointed as manager.
“Our thinking is the next game and the next game, onto the next one,” he said at a press conference on Monday.
“Let’s see where it brings us.
“One thing is results but you don’t always get results and points you deserve. It’s about playing the right way. As long as we play the right way and dominate games, more often than not, we’ll get enough points in the end.”
