Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing up a move for England and Man United star Marcus Rashford, a player who’s been in fine form ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival at Old Trafford.
Rashford is one of the most exciting young talents in Europe at the moment, with his current form at Man United more than backing this up.

As per the report, Rashford has had a price tag of €110M slapped on his head by the Red Devils, however Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is hoping to get the player for around €80M, €30M less than his original price.
Despite a recent purple patch in form, Karim Benzema has clearly been declining quite rapidly in recent years, and it’s about time Real dipped into the transfer market in search of a replacement for the Frenchman.
