would ‘benefit massively’ from leaving and joining Arsenal, according to Stan Collymore.

After a troubled 2021-22 season where doubts over his future at Old Trafford emerged, Rashford has enjoyed a superb start to the season, scoring five times and providing three assists in eight appearances.

The 24-year-old has one year left on his current deal with United holding the option to extend that by a further year.

Paris Saint-Germain are long-term admirers of the England international and while he appears settled at United once again, Collymore believes he could still consider a move – naming Arsenal as an ideal destination.

‘Marcus Rashford would be a great fit for Arsenal,” Collymore told .

‘Away from the pitch, he’s done some great work, but in footballing terms, he’s been a Manchester United player for so long that I worry familiarity is breeding contempt.

‘He knows what it’s like to play for a massive club, so I would have no doubts that he could deal with the pressure of playing for Arsenal.

‘I think Rashford would benefit massively from a move at this stage in his career. He’s only 24 years old, so he still has plenty of football left to play.’

Rashford has spent his entire football career at United and appears to be key to Erik ten Hag’s plans going forward.

But Collymore suggests if United were offered £60million for his services, they should take the money and run.

‘From Man United’s perspective, if it were up to me, I would let him go and take the money for him, and it would be good money too,’ Collymore added.

‘You’re easily going to be talking £60m, maybe more. I think that scenario would be good for United, good for Arsenal and good for the player himself.’

Rashford came off the bench against Omonia in the Europa League on Thursday, providing a game-changing cameo by scoring two goals and providing another for Anthony Martial as part of a second-half fight back.
