Man Utd Finally Identify Replacement For Injured Rashford

Manchester United were dealt a big blow last week after topscorer sustained a chronic back injury that’s set to keep him out until March at least.

England international Marcus Rashford is the leading goalscorer at Manchester United with 19 goals in all competitions and he had been carrying a small back injury before it was aggravated during the FA Cup third-round replay with Wolves at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Rashford came on as a substitute on 64 minutes during that Wolves game at home before he was subbed off with 16 minutes later as a result of the same back problem.

Manchester United won that game 1-0 through a special goal from Juan Manuel Mata and Rashford was involved in the buildup to that winning goal from the Spaniard.

The price to pay for the Red Devils is that Rashford will miss up to 6-10 weeks with the back problem thus ruling him out until March.

The injury to Rashford has forced Manchester United to rejig their transfer plans and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani is a major target as a result according to the Daily Star.

Cavani has six months left on his PSG contract at the moment though the French club are reluctant to let him go this month.
