According to former Spanish footballer José Enrique, Marcus Rashford should leave Manchester United this summer. He goes on to add that the Englishman could repalce Leroy Sane at Bayern Munich.

Speaking to Grosvenor Sports, as reported and quoted by the Manchester Evening News, the former left-back had this to say about the 26-year-old England international:

“I think Marcus Rashford needs to leave Manchester United. I think he needs to move to another country, Germany or Spain perhaps. Especially if Joao Felix doesn’t continue at Barcelona, Rashford could definitely go and play on that left side.

“I also think Bayern Munich could be a good option for Rashford. I believe Leroy Sané only has one year left on his contract there, so I could definitely picture Rashford as a good replacement for him in the Bundesliga.

After his 30-goal 2022/23 season, Rashford failed to hit even double digits in the 2023/24 season and saw appearances hard to come by later on given the emergence of Alejandro Garnacho, the return of Amad Diallo, and Erik ten Hag’s apparent favouritism for Antony. He ultimately failed to make England’s UEFA Euro 2024 squad as well.

Rashford has been linked with a move to PSG in recent months. His current £300k-a-week deal at United is set to run until June 2028.

Not an unreasonable shout

Manchester United should not consider Rashford unsellable under any circumstances.

Sure, the club’s chaotic operations have played a huge role in hindering his overall development as a player, and his philanthropy only further endears him to the Old Trafford faithful, given he’s already a “local lad”.

But hard calls need to be made in football all the time. And the reality does not favour Rashford. In the nine years he has been a senior pro at United, his return in the 2022/23 season stands out as an outlier in contrast to the season-by-season above average returns at best. His talent is undeniable, but so are both his and United’s respective predicaments.

As things stand, parting ways would work for both United and Rashford. And in that regard, José Enrique’s right, Rashford could make it big in Europe.
