Marcus Rashford and Sir Dave Brailsford set for meeting with one clear aim



| Last Updated:


Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is set to have a meeting with INEOS chief Sir Dave Brailsford with there being one clear aim from the talks.

Rashford, 27, has struggled this season after hitting 30 goals across all competitions last term. He has netted just eight times during Erik ten Hag’s second season in charge.

It has been a difficult season for many United players but Rashford has taken the brunt of criticism due to his large status within the team and questionable body language.

Recent reports have stated that INEOS are prepared to listen to offers for almost every player within the squad, with Rashford’s price tag sitting between £70-100 million, depending on what reports you listen to.

Now, according to The Sun, the academy graduate is set for a showdown meeting with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS staff, with Sir Dave Brailsford set to head the discussions, to get to the bottom of his struggling season.

The report goes on to explain that Rashford wants to stay at Old Trafford, and Ratcliffe has not given up on him. The new co-owner wants to find out why Rashford’s form has dramatically dipped this season.

Another aspect that Ratcliffe also wants to address and then resolve is any issues with boss Erik ten Hag.

Speaking on the United No. 10’s issues, Ten Hag said: “I have a lot of sympathy for Rashy, of course. Last year, he had a brilliant season; I think the best in his career. I think it was 30 goals.

“We can see what he is capable of. This season, he hasn’t given the performances and people are very critical and I think we have to back him.

“Everyone should back him and should push him to get back to the levels he had last year.

“I think he needs the support. We all know what he is capable of, so we have to support him, but we also have to push him because he can do better than he is doing this year. We have seen last year, where he was really brilliant.”
