And now the forward could be ready to leave United. With Rashford earned a £200,000 a week reportedthe Red Devils could be ready to sack the striker and now Arsenal could be a potential target for the England international.
Rashford will not be the first forward to sign Arsenal from United as the Gunners sign Danny Welbeck in 2014. And this summer, the 24-year-old could move to the English capital if Arteta follows his interest.

Rashford to Arsenal could be Arteta’s biggest venture yet
The Arsenal manager has a solid track record of improving players both in North London and during his time as an assistant at Manchester City, but Rashford could be Arteta’s biggest test yet if the Basque manager decides to sign the England sensation .
Indeed, Rashford has the qualities to become, with the right coaching, a world-class striker and heavy marksman for Arsenal and if Arteta can get the best out of the United star, the 40-year-old manager would once again put in an incredible performance Signature from an unlikely source.
