Juventus intensifying shock interest in Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford
Drew Bartle Head Sports Editor
In what will come as quite a shock to Manchester United fans, a report in the Times states that Juventus are doing their homework on Marcus Rashford, ahead of a potential move to snag the Englishman and team him up with Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin.
Marcus Rashford’s excellent form for England and his undoubted potential, a still only 21 – combined with the success of other English players abroad, Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson has undoubtedly further attracted Juventus.
The Times say that Juventus are ‘compiling a dossier’ on Rashford who has come up with 2 Premier League goals this season, however the 21-year old has yet to complete a full 90 minutes in the league under Jose Mourinho so far this term.
Rashford has a contract at United until 2020, but the club has the option to extend it, however if Juventus do intensify their interest the club could be forced to move earlier to tie the Englishman down to a more lucrative deal.
Juve got a first hand-look at the attacker in Turin a couple of weeks back as United stunned the Italian champions and one of the leading favourites to win the Champions League – Rashford came off the bench to inspire the 2-1 away win.
