Jose Mourinho wants to swap Marcus Rashford with 25-year-old star attacker: report

Ramos and Isco

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is seemingly desperate to get his hands of Real Madrid Isco during the summer. According to Don Balon, United could agree upon a surprise exchange deal involving Marcus Rashford for the Spain international.

Mourinho has repeatedly suggested that he is content with his attacking options for the current season and beyond, but reports continue to link several attackers with the club including Isco’s teammates Gareth Bale.

As per Don Balon, Isco has re-emerged as a transfer target for the Red Devils with Mourinho urging the club’s hierarchy to do what it takes to pursue the former Malaga man. It is added that United could go to the extent of offering Rashford in a straight-swap deal in order to do business with their European rivals.

Isco has proved his credentials for club and country over the past 18 months, but given the competition for places at United, his arrival would hamper the gametime of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford further.

Martial, in particular, has already been associated with a move to Juventus, and the club need to solve the Frenchman’s future at the earliest with his existing deal due to expire during the summer of 2019.


  1. Personally I don’t think its a good move wanting to swop Rashford for Isco. Rash ford in my humble opinion is the future of Man Utd. He is homegrown he knows the Utd way of playing. He does not get enough game time but when he does he makes a massive difference. Rather sell Martial than Rashford I say.

  2. I love man united but I urge mourinho not to include martial in his transfers. martial is capable talented and more skilled player at old trafford. José brings us tony kross
