Marcus Rashford is prepared to leave Old Trafford in the pursuit of first-team football, the Sun reports. The 21-year-old England forward, who has two goals in 13 games for his club this season, could be tempted to talk to Real Madrid, the paper says.

What the papers say

Borussia Dortmund have expressed an interest in signing Everton’s young star Anthony Gordon, the Daily Mail says. The Bundesliga leaders have form in finding young English talent after signing Jadon Sancho last year, but Bayern Munich and Arsenal are also in for the 17-year-old according to the paper.

Atlanta United attacking midfielder Miguel Almiron has caught the attention of Newcastle, West Ham and Everton, according to the Sun. The Paraguay international would reportedly cost around £15m.

Another potential arrival on Tyneside is Stanley N’Soki. The Daily Mirror reports United boss Rafael Benitez has reignited his interest in the Paris St Germain left-back.
