I will join Arsenal on one condition – Marcus Rashford urged to quit Man Utd and relaunch career with Premier League rival



I will join Arsenal on one condition – Marcus Rashford urged to quit Man Utd and relaunch career with Premier League rival

Marcus Rashford has struggled to fire over the past 12 months amid continued talk he should consider leaving Manchester United – with Arsenal touted as an ideal destination

Marcus Rashford should relaunch his career at Arsenal and create a “frightening” front line to “destroy” title rivals.

‌Former Gunners star Bacary Sagna believes Mikel Arteta should rescue Rashford from Manchester United to freshen up his attack to move ahead of Manchester City next season.

Rashford is one of a host of Old Trafford stars who could move on after a self-confessed “difficult” season, despite winning the FA Cup.

He got seven goals and two assists in the Premier League and was dropped from Gareth Southgate ’s 33-man Euros squad.

The 26-year old then took a break from social media to “rest and reset mentally after a challenging season individually and collectively.”

He added: “Thanks to the fans that stood by me through a difficult period.” Sagna reckons Rashford should revitalise his career and Arsenal ’s trophy hopes, with a move.

He said: “I think if you added Rashford to Arsenal’s attack, with the pace that he has, Arsenal would destroy the opposition. Adding Rashford to an extremely talented squad would be a frightening prospect for Arsenal’s rivals.

“I would love to see Marcus Rashford at Arsenal. Rashford is so quick. I think having Rashford would enable Arsenal to have more variety in attack and I would love to see Gabriel Jesus and Marcus Rashford in the same team, pressing with so much intensity.”

Rashford would cost £70m, and take a big chunk of their budget, but Sagna told

“It would be a brilliant capture and I think there is room in the squad for a player of Rashford’s ability because Gabriel Jesus won’t be able to play every game and Kai Havertz can also play in a number of roles. Rashford joining Arsenal would be a real statement of ambition.”

“I think Rashford has had some personal issues; his mum spoke out about it. People have been too harsh on him. Sometimes people need to remember that footballers are human and can be affected by events off the field and in their personal lives.

“Everyone that watches football would say that Rashford hasn’t been at his devastating best this season. We can all see the quality, the potential. He has the ability to be one of the best players in the world.

“This season has been a challenge for him. Mentally, he hasn’t been at his best, but when that happens you need support and a good environment to bring you back to your best level. You need your teammates and your manager to lift you up. You need people to believe in you.

“The vibe at Manchester United hasn’t been good this season. When analysing a player’s performance, you need to look at the bigger picture, and there have been a lot of reported problems at the club.‌
