Silva will be hailed a genius if Everton win reported loan hunt to sign Manchester United player


Everton are reportedly lining up a loan move for Manchester United ace Marcus Rashford and new manager Marco Silva will be hailed a genius if he can bring him to Goodison Park.

The Daily Mail claims that the Toffees, Leicester City and Newcastle United are all interested in snapping up the striker on loan next season amid frustrations over minutes at Old Trafford.

There is no understanding of how Man United manager Jose Mourinho plans to use the 20-year-old next season, but the Mail’s report mentions a loan to give him more regular minutes as an alternative to regular substitute appearances.

Everton are crying out for a new centre-forward for the 2018/19 campaign to help them compete for the European spots in the Premier League and snapping up wonderkid Rashford on a temporary basis would be exceptional .

Man United’s rising star is expected to go right to the very top and will hope to prove his talent this summer for England at the World Cup.

He has such brilliant pace, technical ability and an understanding at his age, which is why any team in England would improve with him in the side.

Rashford does have the versatility to play anywhere in attack and he could deliver on a 20-goal return at Goodison Park next season if he was given the role of main man.

In reality it seems very unlikely that Man United will sanction the exit of the centre-forward in any format over the summer, meaning now Everton fans will just have to dream.
