Man United expert gives Hammers News the inside track on new claims linking Marcus Rashford with a move to West Ham.

A new report from 90 Min today claims West Ham are one of a clutch of clubs interested in signing Manchester United striker Rashford.

According to the report Rashford is considering his future at Man United after failing to hold down a regular spot in the starting lineup.

And that has alerted West Ham, who have been trying to find and sign a striker for well over a year without success.

Rashford has made 18 Premier League appearances this term, but only nine of those have been starts and just two have come in 2022.

“Sources have confirmed to 90min that Rashford has become increasingly frustrated under Rangnick and fears that the German, whose influence at the club will continue in a consultancy role after his temporary spell in the dugout comes to an end this summer, may not see a future for him at the club,” 90 Min reports.

90min has learned that West Ham, Arsenal and Newcastle United are all keeping a close eye on the situation, while Atletico Madrid have also registered interest in the 24-year-old.”

On the face of it, West Ham links to a player reportedly valued at north of £70m seem ridiculous.

But are they?

Man United expert gives inside track on Marcus Rashford to West Ham claims

United in Focus writer and Man United expert Coombs has exclusively explained to Hammers News that a shock exit could well be on the cards. But he feels that it is unlikely.

“Man United have been playing with fire letting Rashford’s contract get to the point it has,” United in Focus’ Coombs told Hammers News.

“It expires in 2023 with an option to 2024. Perhaps they took it for granted he would re-sign. If Rashford is unhappy right now he needs to look in the mirror. His form has been terrible and he does not deserve to make the upcoming England squad.

“So there is blame on both sides. I don’t expect him to leave, he just needs to be patient until the new manager is hired. I still expect him to stay.

“But if he doesn’t perform and the new manager doesn’t fancy him, there could well be a shock exit.”

When questions were being asked about a lack of transfer activity at West Ham in January, David Moyes did admit in that he may choose to save his money and go bigger for players he wants in the summer (Standard Sport).

And the Hammers did reportedly bid around £60m for forward Darwin Nunez before the January deadline.

So perhaps it is not that unthinkable after all.

Especially if West Ham can secure European football again.

Who knows maybe being a guaranteed starter every week at a big club and a change of surroundings coming to the capital could be appealing for Rashford.

He is close friends with Jesse Lingard who will also be a prime West Ham target in the summer.

What a double signing that would be.
