Arsenal has been advised to consider signing Marcus Rashford instead of pursuing a world-class player, while Chelsea is also rumored to be interested in a surprising deal with Manchester United.


A former Premier League champion has suggested that Marcus Rashford could consider moving to either Arsenal or Chelsea if he decides to depart from Manchester United in the upcoming transfer window.


Rashford’s performance has declined since his impressive 2022-23 season, managing only eight goals and five assists in 43 appearances this campaign.


The winger seems to be struggling with confidence and has decided to take a hiatus from social media to focus on his mental well-being.


The road ahead appears challenging for Rashford, especially after being excluded from England’s preliminary roster for the upcoming European Championship.


The 26-year-old may potentially depart from his childhood club, Manchester United. Recent reports indicate that Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the INEOS chief, is open to offers for almost every member of the Man Utd squad, including influential players like Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.


In the previous week, Arsenal received information from an observer suggesting that they could secure Rashford at a reduced price due to his supposed ‘unsettled’ state at Old Trafford.


William Gallas, a former Chelsea player who won four trophies and also had a notable stint at Arsenal with 142 appearances, has now shared his thoughts on Rashford’s situation.


Gallas believes that if the 60-cap international is informed of his necessity to depart from Man Utd, Rashford might engage in discussions with both Chelsea and Arsenal.


Gallas suggests that Rashford might be a better fit for Arsenal than Kylian Mbappe, who is set to join Real Madrid.


Arsenal update: Potential move for Marcus Rashford

“There will always be top players interested in joining Chelsea, but the question remains whether Rashford would consider leaving Man Utd. The reason behind it is unknown, perhaps there is an issue with Erik ten Hag,” the former defender stated in a recent interview.


“If Ten Hag departs, Rashford might decide to stay. We all want to see the young, dynamic player who burst onto the scene, full of energy, scoring fantastic goals. He showed a lot of dedication back then, but now he seems different.


“Injuries could have played a part, and a fresh start at a new club might be the best option for him. Chelsea could offer him that opportunity.”


Contrasting Rashford with Mbappe, Gallas stated: “Kylian Mbappe’s style of play and his need to be the focal point of the game would not align with Arsenal’s system.


“He is an incredibly talented player, arguably the best attacker in the world, but he thrives on being the main man and making a difference individually.


“Arsenal’s style of play is more team-oriented, and Mbappe may struggle to adapt to that system.”


Paris Saint-Germain have been rumored to be interested in Rashford as they seek to replace Mbappe. However, the French club is reportedly exploring other options.


Considering the ongoing discussions about Rashford’s potential departure from Man Utd, it is highly probable that the talented forward would prefer to remain at the club he passionately supports.


His commitment would be focused on aiding the team’s resurgence and securing a position in the top four for the upcoming season.


If Man Utd indeed decides to part ways with Ten Hag, as anticipated, the responsibility of revitalizing Rashford’s exceptional form will fall upon his successor.


Currently, Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel emerge as the leading contenders to assume the managerial role at the club in the next season.
