There are some transfers that reverberate through history: Luis Figo to Real Madrid, Robin Van Persie to Manchester United and Neymar to PSG. According to Melissa Reddy in The Independent, Liverpool want to pull off one of these gargantuan signings by buying Marcus Rashford, however, they are well aware that they cannot get him.

Rashford has long been thought of as the next big thing for Manchester United.

The 22-year-old has been around so long that it’s easy to forget that he’s only in his early 20s.

His potential is boundless, whilst he hasn’t become a world class striker as immediately as some projected when he first burst onto the scene in the 2015/16 season, he still has a decade or so ahead of him and he likely won’t hit his peak for another six or seven years.

According to Melissa Reddy, the Liverpool recruitment team are “big admirers” of Marcus Rashford but aware that their interest is “immaterial”.

What RTK has to say

If Liverpool signed Marcus Rashford it would arguably be the biggest, most controversial move since Luis Figo joined Real Madrid.

The Reds could make use of the young striker and we would certainly be made up with buying him.

Rashford has an incredible work rate and is full of potential, he is precisely the type of player that flourishes under Jürgen Klopp.

Sadly, it couldn’t ever happen given the tribalistic nature of the rivalry between the two sides and the fact that United aren’t in a position where they need to sell big.

If we did pull it off then being able to rub it in the face of United fans would be utterly delectable. Sadly, it seems as if Liverpool signing Marcus Rashford is just a pipe dream.
