Sleeping Premier League giants Manchester United need to sign an attacker to replace injured Marcus Rashford who’s already a doubt for the England national team ahead of this summer’s European Championships billed for different centers on the continent.

Marcus Rashford was said to be carrying a stress fracture in his back before the problem was aggravated by his collision with Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Matt Doherty when the two teams met last week Wednesday for the replay of their FA Cup third-round clash which ended in a goalless draw.

Juan Manuel Mata scored the only goal of the game to give Manchester United a 1-0 win at home thus securing a spot in the fourth round as a result.

Marcus Rashford came on for just 16 minutes and was involved in Juan Mata’s strike before being substituted as a result of the injury.

Manchester United have been linked with several strikers as an alternative to replace Marcus Rashford in their squad and these options include Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani.

According to the report from ESPN, Manchester United can sign Edinson Cavani for just €20m.

The Uruguayan international has already submitted a transfer request at PSG whose officials are not willing to release him.
