Manchester United Enter Transfer Market To Replace Rashford

Manchester United Replace Rashford

Manchester United are now looking for short-term options to replace Marcus Rashford in the January transfer market, with their top scorer likely to be sidelined for at least six weeks.

The 22-year-old did not travel to Anfield when the Red Devils loss 2-0 to Liverpool on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed after the game that Rashford would be out for a lengthy period of time and that a short-term replacement is being sought after.

The Red Devils are already missing two key players, talk about Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, and have already explored temporary midfield options in the winter market. 

“When you miss Scott, Paul, Marcus, any club and any team will notice that,” Solskjaer said.

“So that might mean that we might look at some short-term deals to take us to the summer. It might not.

“The permanent signings we are looking for, the targets are not going to change because we’ve got two or three players injured for the next few months.

“It still has a plan behind them. But there might be some short term deals that we have to do.”
