Real Madrid have been linked with a blockbuster summer move for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.

The 20-year-old has struggled for game time under boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, starting just 14 games in the Premier League and making a further 13 from the bench.

Despite limited minutes on the pitch, he has managed to score 12 goals and record six assists in all competitions.

And apparently Los Blancos are set to make an offer for the youngster.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport, club president Florentino Perez has identified Rashford as a replacement for the aging Karim Benzema who is expected to leave in the summer.

The move could have more traction than people realise, as Cristiano Ronaldo is a huge fan of the Red Devil.

Speaking about Rashford in 2016, the Portuguese said: “He’s a very good young player. I see some of myself in him for sure – he has courage and he’s fast and is very good with the ball.

“I think for the strikers they have to be hungry to score and I see that with him. He has an amazing future.”
