Community club deny asking £2m from Manchester United for developing Marcus Rashford

The community club which first gave new Manchester United star Marcus Rashford the chance to play football have denied asking the Premier League giants for £2m.

Rashford played at Fletcher Moss Rangers as a child – and is one of several professionals to have done so, along with the likes of Danny Welbeck, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Tyler Blackett.

A club statement read: “It has been suggested in at least one national newspaper recently that Fletcher Moss Rangers are asking Manchester United for a donation of £2million for the development of Marcus whilst with our club. This is not the case.”
