Chelsea eyeing move for young England international ace

According to reports, Chelsea join Barcelona and Real Madrid in race for Marcus Rashford, who has scored 31 goals in 119 appearances for Manchester United. The England international broke into first-team back in 2015 and has developed into a key player for both the club and national team.

Despite featuring in almost 50 matches for his side this season, the Manchester-born star is said to be becoming frustrated by his lack of starts under Jose Mourinho. He has been forced to play back-up to summer signing Romelu Lukaku, while his prospects were not improved by the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

The Daily Star claims the Red Devils are poised to open contract negotiations with the youngster as they fear he could leave in the summer unless offered a bumper new deal.

Machester United do not want the starlet to leave but know Chelsea and La Liga giants duo will express interest if he stars in this summer’s World Cup in Russia. Meanwhile, the club remains hopeful that he will put pen to paper on a new deal, however, and would hold out for over £100m if a sale did become inevitable.
