A major Manchester United player’s contract is about to expire, and Arsenal could pull off a coup.
If Marcus Rashford does not agree to a new deal at Old Trafford, Arsenal has been urged to launch an ambitious bid for the forward. Because Rashford’s current contract is about to expire, the latest high-profile trade between the two Premier League powerhouses might happen if it does.
The Premier League leaders after nine victories in their first 11 games, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal is having a fantastic season. While leading the line for Erik ten Hag’s revamped United team, Rashford has experienced a comeback of his own this season and appears to be close to returning to his vivacious best.
However, there is little talk of the extension talks moving further. His contract expires at the end of the season with the option to renew for another year. However, Kevin Campbell, a former Everton and Arsenal striker, thinks the Gunners would pull off a coup if he were to become a free agent or sign for a bargain price.
According to him, [Rashford] checks off some important boxes for Arsenal. He may be lethal during a counterattack. His quickness allowed him to defeat Arsenal at Old Trafford earlier this season. We are aware that on his best day, Rashford is lethal.
By the sounds of it, Manchester United is hesitating, even though they were confident that Arsenal would sign him if he became available next summer. He is an international athlete who has performed on prominent stages. He can win games. Arsenal occasionally lacks that. It would be wonderful to have a player with his level of expertise in the rotation.
The most recent instances of forwards who have switched allegiances between the two teams include Alexis Sanchez, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Danny Welbeck, and Robin van Persie. And if a tempting offer is made and United’s Champions League absence continues, Rashford might be persuaded to join the group.
