Marcus Rashford could leave Manchester United due to ownership uncertainty
Earlier in the campaign, the Glazers had expressed their intention about being open to selling the Red Devils. Subsequently, a February deadline was set for bidders to make their offer for the Old Trafford side.
Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar and INEOS founder Jim Ratcliffe are the two leading contenders who are expected to take control of United. However, we are in May and there still is no clarity on who will own the club.
As such, it could affect the financial strategy and power of the Old Trafford side ahead of the upcoming transfer window. As a result, the Red Devils’ 25-year-old English forward is expected to wait and see which direction we are going in before committing his future.
Thus, it could ‘lead to United losing Rashford’. The forward’s current contract with the Manchester-based club is set to expire in the summer of 2024. But for now, the winger has delayed the signing of a new deal.
The England international has been our best player this season. He has been in fine form and is the Red Devils’ leading goalscorer since Erik ten hag’s arrival.
Under the Dutch manager, the Old Trafford side have taken massive strides towards success. However, the gaffer evidently needs to be backed next summer for him to take us to the next level.
Up front, Ten Hag was provided with the services of Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley in January to provide cover for Anthony Martial. The French national has been injury-prone in the current campaign, resulting in the reliance on Rashford.

Therefore, United seemingly need to invest in their squad in the coming months. However, it remains to be seen whether the Glazers will hammer out a possible deal soon and give the potential new owners time to come up with a strategy.
