Manchester United Might Lose 20 Y/O Attacker In Pursuit Of 18 Y/O Ace: 3 Clubs For Him To Consider

Manchester United are closing in on a move for AFC Ajax winger Justin Kluivert. According to recent reports in the English media, the Red Devils could let their forward Marcus Rashford leave if they are successful in their pursuit of the Dutch wonder-kid. It is believed that the 18-year-old is yet to receive an offer from the Old Trafford side with Jose Mourinho claiming that he is happy with his current attacking options at United. Some sources are now suggesting that a potential move for Kluivert might have huge repercussions on Rashford’s future at the club.

The England international might be forced to leave the club in search of more first-team opportunities with a plethora of attacking talent already at United’s disposal. Rashford has made 37 appearances for Manchester United this season, scoring 10 goals and providing 8 assists in all competitions. In comparison, Kluivert has found the back of the net 6 times while creating 3 assists for Ajax across all competitions. 

The arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in the winter transfer period has only increased the competition for places at Old Trafford which has made the future of Rashford uncertain at the club. Let’s take a look at three potential destinations for the English youngster to consider if he ends up leaving the Red Devils in the near future.

Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino has made a habit of developing young players into future superstars as evidenced by the rapid rise of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen among many others in recent years. His Spurs team can definitely use someone of Rashford’s ability going forward and a possible move for him will undoubtedly bolster their attacking options and help them in their quest to bridge the gap between themselves and the Manchester clubs in the coming years.

Borussia Dortmund

The Bundesliga club has lost a few of their star players in recent years and could benefit from the acquisition of someone of Rashford’s calibre. The youngster has a lot of pace and trickery which they can use to fill the void left by Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang’s departure to Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Manchester City

The Citizens of Manchester are flying high at the moment and are currently cruising towards the Premier League title. However, Pep Guardiola should be aware that his side needs to keep improving if they are to keep their challengers at bay in the coming years. The potential acquisition of Rashford could turn out to be a shrewd piece of business for City if they decided to opt for his services in the near future.
