Man United are looking for Marcus Rashford’s replacement

Manchester United

Man United could replace Marcus Rashford with one of three transfer targets. The 2023/24 season has not been easy for Man United. 

Erik ten Hag’s side currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League, on 54 points, although they are mathematically out of the running for a top-four finish now.

It has been a tough season for some individuals in United’s squad, too. Marcus Rashford is one man who has struggled to find his best form. He has scored just seven goals and registered two assists in 31 Premier League games, a major drop-off from last season when he scored 17 league goals.

There is little doubting Rashford’s ability when he is in full flow. As the statistics show, he is one of the deadliest wingers, and has 131 Man United goals in 399 games, along with 64 assists. In one-on-one situations, Rashford is deadly, using his strength and skill to beat a defender and burst away into space.

The England international is an explosive player, who enjoys driving from out wide into the penalty area, proven by the fact he takes his most average touches in the box, according to Fbref. His 5.72 touches in the penalty box per 90 minutes last season place him in the top 18% of wingers in the Premier League.

Man United have decided to sell Marcus Rashford, if the right offer comes

He does his best work with a centre forward who can drop deep, pulling defenders away to help vacate space, like Anthony Martial has done so well during his career. Perhaps this is part of the reason for Rashford’s tough season. Rasmus Hojlund is not as accomplished at doing this, and often operates in the same areas Rashford would ideally play in.

With Rashford’s form hit and miss so far this season, there are reports that he could leave United in the summer. The Telegraph’s James Ducker broke the news last Monday that the Red Devils are willing to listen to offers for every player, including Rashford.

Despite David Ornstein of The Athletic explaining United are likely to keep Rashford, there have been reports linking INEOS to some of the top wingers in Europe,
