Speaking to Caught Offside, former Liverpool man Stan Collymore said: “Marcus Rashford would be a great fit for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. Away from the pitch, he’s done some great work. But in footballing terms…
“He’s been a Manchester United player for so long that I worry familiarity is breeding contempt. A perfect example of when a player makes the decision to switch things up and move clubs and it benefits all parties is Gabriel Jesus.
“Rashford knows what it’s like to play for a massive club, so I would have no doubts that he could deal with the pressure of playing for Arsenal. I think Rashford would benefit massively from a move at this stage in his career.
“He’s only 24 years old, so he still has plenty of football left to play. From Man United’s perspective, if it were up to me, I would let him go. That scenario would be good for Man United, Arsenal and the player himself.”
Rashford’s contract at Man United expires at the end of the 2022/23 season but Man United have an on option of extending the deal for another year.
Erik ten Hag has reportedly requested for all negotiations to be put on hold for the time being as the new manager assesses the Old Trafford squad.
