This was true regardless of the manager who was sitting in the dugout at the time.
However, despite having a respectable season in 2022/23, the England striker has only managed to find the back of the goal four times in a total of twenty Premier League matches this season.
After sources indicated that Rashford was out partying in Belfast on Thursday and missed training on Friday, Erik ten Hag left him out of his team for the 4-2 FA Cup victory against Newport County on Sunday.
This week, the 26-year-old made headlines for the wrong reasons, as he was not included in the squad.
“Marcus has taken responsibility for his actions,” United said in a statement that was posted late on Monday night.
The situation has been resolved as an internal disciplinary matter, and it is now closed. However, it is unclear whether Rashford was subjected to any additional punishment on account of this problem.
However, despite the fact that he has problems both on and off the field, Rashford is still garnering interest from other outstanding clubs across Europe.
Last year, Paris Saint-Germain was rumored to be interested in the 26-year-old player, and Manchester United offered a transfer fee of 120 million pounds for their academy graduate.
At the end of the season, Rashford finished with 30 goals and 11 assists across 56 appearances across all competitions. Additionally, during the summer, he signed a new five-year contract that is reportedly worth £325,000 per week.
It is possible that United will need to get an offer that is greater than the initial asking price of 120 million pounds in order to convince the Premier League giants to sell him. His contract has more than four years left on it.
During the summer of 2017, Arsenal paid West Ham £105 million for the services of Declan Rice, making him the most expensive British player in history.
Even if the cost that Real Madrid paid for Jude Bellingham increases to £114 million through add-ons, Rashford has the potential to easily surpass the record.
Rashford’s valuation, on the other hand, has dropped to €100 million (£86 million) over the course of the past six months, as a result of his precipitous decline in performance, as stated by The CIES Football Observatory.
Whether or not Rashford has signed a new deal, his future is certain to get a lot of attention in the back pages for the rest of the season and during this summer.
