Arsenal have reportedly been handed a massive boost as it seems like Real Madrid will not make Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a priority transfer target.
Instead, the Spanish giants would supposedly prefer to focus their forces on signing Man Utd star Marcus Rashford for that place, according to Don Balon.
It remains to be seen how realistic it is that Manchester United would consider letting Marcus Rashford go at this point, with the young England international looking massively improved in recent weeks.
Real Madrid could do with quality like him upfront, but the Red Devils will surely do all they can to keep this squad together as they need to build around talented young players to make a promising new generation at Old Trafford.
Marcus Rashford should be someone they make a crucial figure in their squad for the long run, though that is also why Real Madrid are so interested, according to Don Balon.
The report explains that although Arsenal’s captain may be a more realistic target, Real Madrid would prefer the younger Marcus Rashford to come in the upfront.
The 22-year-old forward could be the ideal long-term successor to Karim Benzema, and Arsenal supporters will no doubt be hoping this can give their club some breathing space regarding their star player.
The Gabon international striker has been one of the only real positives for AFC this campaign and losing him to Real Madrid, or another big club now could be disastrous for them as they face a big enough rebuilding job as it is right now.
