West Ham and Everton lead race for unsettled Man United prodigy

| 14.02.2017

With Marcus Rashford stalling on a contract extension at Manchester United, speculation has intensified over a possible exit for the 19-year-old, with West Ham United and Everton the current front-runners if he decides to leave Old Trafford.

The teenager has started just two of the Red Devils last 12 Premier League games, and that lack of game-time – combined with wage demands – is believed to be the current stumbling block between club and player.

However, if he is to leave the North-West, there are no shortage of clubs interested in the services of the hugely talented forward, who netted 12 times last season despite not featuring in the first-term until late February.

That means it’s no surprise to see the Hammers as 5/1 joint-favourites for his signature, with none of Slaven Bilic’s current strikers having scored more than six goals this season.

Everton are also priced at 5s, and the Toffees are likely to need a new striker this summer, with the departure of Romelu Lukaku looking increasingly likely.

Next up are Stoke City at 8/1, with West Brom 12/1 to bring him to the Hawthorns and 16/1 on offer for the England international to team up with another former United hitman, Danny Welbeck, at Arsenal.

However, the price which could worry fans of Jose Mourinho’s side most is the 3/1 for Rashford to exit this summer. Those odds have fallen from 9/1 last week, and could be trimmed again if the cold war over contract talks continue.
