Then again, Rashford’s contract expires in June 2023 and while it may be prolonged by one other 12 months, the Purple Devils’ hierarchy is not going to need to be in one other scenario in a 12 months’s time the place they should promote a participant to keep away from shedding him on a free switch.
The second query for United is, if they’re keen to promote Rashford, what’s his market worth?
