MARCUS RASHFORD must be hurting inside every time he switches on the telly this summer to watch the action unfold at Euro 2024.

At the age of 26, this should have been the summer when the Manchester United star played a key role in helping England end their long wait for silverware.

But a terrible season with United saw the winger miss out on a place in Gareth Southgate's squad and he couldn't really have any complaints with those picked instead showing much better form.

Having smashed 34 goals in season 2022/23, including three strikes at the World Cup, Rashford should have pushed on at both club and international level.

But he couldn't even get into double figures this term and it might be time for Rashford to leave his boyhood club to get out of his malaise.

Here's a look at where the Old Trafford star might end up next.

Barcelona

The Catalan giants are slight favourites to land Rashford at 13/8 with SkyBet and moving to the Nou Camp would be an interesting move.

Barcelona need more firepower up front with Robert Lewandowski turning 36 later this summer and Ferran Torres linked with a return to the Premier League.

Rashford has seen England team-mate Jude Bellingham prosper since joining Real Madrid last summer and might fancy some of the same at Barca.

Paris St-Germain

There's a gaping Kylian Mpabbe-shaped hole in PSG's attack after the superstar forward ran his contract down and finally sealed his dream move to Real Madrid.

Mbappe plays in the same position as Rashford, coming in on from the left flank, so he would fit the bill if the French champions are looking for a similar kind of player.

While Rashford's wage demands put him outwith the reach of many clubs on the continent, Paris St-Germain's Qatari owners have deep pockets and wouldn't have a problem coming up with the money needed to seal the deal.

SkyBet and William Hill both price a move to Paris at 11/4 and it wouldn't be a massive surprise to see him end up there.

Arsenal

The Gunners are third in the betting for this market at 8/1 with William Hill and are also looking to bolster their attack, with talk of Gabriel Jesus moving on.

It's hard to imagine Manchester United wanting to sell to one of their direct rivals for a Champions League place but if Arsenal make a big-money bid it could tempt them to do a deal.

The rivalry between these clubs isn't as fierce as it was in the days of Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger with plenty of players moving directly from Old Trafford to the Emirates and vice versa.

The likes of Robin van Persie, Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have crossed the divide in recent years so don't rule out Rashford joining that list.

Bayern Munich

The German giants raided the Premier League last summer to snap up Harry Kane and that move was a massive success with the Spurs striker enjoying a 40-goal debut campaign.

Rashford might fancy a move to the Bundesliga himself and Bayern are another team who could afford both the fee and his wages.

The fallen Bundesliga champions are 12/1 in the betting and move for Rashford does seem unlikely given they have lots of quality in the wide areas with the likes of Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry.

Serie A

A few English players have revived their careers in Italy over the last few years with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Ruben Loftus Cheek and Chris Smalling all moving to Serie A.

Big guns Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan are all 40/1 in the betting to land Rashford. All three could offer the United star Champions League football and Juve look set for a major revamp this summer with Thiago Motta arriving as boss.
