Man Utd star Rashford discusses potential move abroad
Man Utd fan favourite Marcus Rashford has refused to rule out a potential move to Barcelona or Real Madrid in the future, but remains focused on his boyhood club.
Joining United at the age of seven, Rashford is a product of their world-famous academy, having grown up in Wythenshawe.
Rashford has made 57 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils this season, scoring 21 goals and assisting 15.

Speaking to The Guardian, the 23-year-old explained that he likes the idea of playing abroad, and has watched both El Clasico sides from a young age.
Speaking about playing abroad, he said: “I would never say no.
“I’m a big fan of Real Madrid and Barcelona because they’ve always had great players and played attractive football. Everybody watches Real Madrid and Barcelona.”
Rashford has also revealed his willingness to learn new languages, for his own personal development, as opposed to preparing for a transfer: “When I was growing up, learning a language wasn’t deemed important in school. There wasn’t that expectation on you.

“Football has given me the opportunity to travel to different countries, and you have certain countries you like and want to learn more about, and learning a language is definitely a part of that.”
Rashford and United will face off against Wolves at Molineux on Sunday as the curtain closes on another Premier League season.
With a second-place finish secured for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, they will likely have one eye on Wednesday’s Europa League final against Villarreal, so it would not be surprising if a number of first-team names are rested in Nuno Espirito Santo’s last game in charge of Wolves.
Solskjaer has been dealt a massive blow ahead of their European final, as captain Harry Maguire is unlikely to recover from his injury in time to play.
Maguire picked up an ankle injury in their win against Aston Villa earlier this month and has not featured since.
“He is walking but it is a long way from that to running,” said Solskjaer. “We will give him every chance but I don’t think we will see him in Gdansk.
“I’m going to give him until Tuesday night and the last training session, to see if he can be out there. Steadily he is improving but we’re going to give him time to heal.”
