Rashford’s contract at Old Trafford expires in less than a year, though the club is said to retain the option of another year if a new contract cannot be agreed upon.
According to recent reports, Arsenal is interested in him because he is 24 and fits the Arsenal rebuild led by Mikel Arteta. United has set a £50 million price tag on him, and if a contract renewal cannot be reached, the club may be forced to sell.

Stan Collymore, as a result, has urged the gunners to go after him.
He revealed on CaughtOffside:
“Marcus Rashford would be a great fit for 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.”
“He 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.”
