Real Madrid have not given up hope of signing Marcus Rashford and are preparing a £100m bid for the striker, while Tottenham turned down the chance to sign a Brazilian winger, according to the Transfer Deadline Day papers.
REAL READY TO TEMPT UNITED WITH RASHFORD OFFER
Real Madrid will reportedly make a £100m bid for Marcus Rashford before he signs a new deal at Manchester United this summer.
The report in The Sun claims that the Spanish giants have not given up hope of landing the England forward, who had been linked with a move to The Bernabeu when he was struggling to earn regular starts under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
The 21-year-old was said to be seriously considering his United at that point but since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival, Rashford has started all seven Premier League games in which the Norwegian has been in charge.
However, that is not thought to be deterring Real, as they are refusing to give up in their quest to sign the player and want to do so before he pens a new contract.
The report also claims that Rashford will wait until the summer before making any long-term decisions about his future – news that has given Real Madrid a lift in their hopes of signing him.
