European champions Real Madrid could launch a sensational bid to bring Manchester United and England teenager Marcus Rashford to the Spanish capital, according to OK Diario (via Goal.com).
The England international, who made his professional debut for the Red Devils just nine months ago, has shot to prominence since then as a result of several excellent displays for United, including netting a brace on his debut in the Europa League, and then scoring twice on his Premier League debut in their 3-2 win over Arsenal.
The 19-year-old was then called up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad after impressing at the end of the season, and he also scored in his first national team appearance in a friendly win over Australia in May.
Having been a feature in the United first team under Jose Mourinho this season, Rashford is unsurprisingly attracting interest from around Europe, with it reported that Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid are keeping tabs on the youngster.
The Spanish giants have sent scouts to watch Rashford in action for England, and Zidane could use the lure of Champions League football as a way of persuading the 19-year-old to end an association with Manchester United that dates back to 2005.
