Marcus Rashford tipped to leave Manchester United for Chelsea

Former Chelsea centre-back William Gallas has urged the Blues to launch a summer bid for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford. The academy graduate burst onto the scene in 2016 and hopes were high that he would go on to become a superstar for Manchester United, but his career since then has been rather up and down, and he has recently found himself out of Erik ten Hag’s starting line-up. That has led former United teammate Wayne Rooney to call on Rashford to consider whether he is best served staying at Old Trafford or whether a change of scenery might help him to reach his full potential. Gallas evidently concurs with that analysis – and he believes that a move to Chelsea, in particular, would be a boost both for the players and for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Gallas told Genting Casino: “There will always be quality players who are interested in signing for Chelsea, but we have to ask if Rashford would want to leave Man United. “Nobody knows the reason, maybe he has a problem with Erik ten Hag - if he leaves then Rashford could stay. A player like Rashford, we want to see the exciting young player who broke through on fire, running everywhere and scoring beautiful goals. “He had a lot of commitment then as well, now he is not the same player. Maybe injuries have been a problem and another club for a fresh start could be the right option and Chelsea would provide this for him.” The best features, fun and footballing quizzes, straight to your inbox every week.
