Yesterday, with the transfer window now open and speculation starting to ramp up, we covered the possibility that, despite our wishes, Manchester United could lose their young striker, Marcus Rashford.
Our article Click Here, commented on Rashford sharing the same fears we have, namely that the decline of the side won’t be halted this summer if the hierarchy don’t bring the right players to the club.
Today, another news source, the red-top publication, the Daily Star, carries the inference that the club are confident that Rashford will stay and will sign a new contract.
Their confidence is based on United more than trebling the strikers’ wages by offering him a deal that will increase his salary to a whopping £300,000 a week.
But, are the club missing the point?
It may, for Rashford, not be all about the money, it’s about what success lies ahead for the club as they chase silverware.
Rashford might be casting an envious eye around to see if there are other clubs, on mainland Europe, that could deliver the silverware he cherishes.
In our view, United are in danger of being a little too complacent if they think money is the be-all and end-all.
