Italian side AC Milan are turning their attention to signing Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford after admitting defeat in their attempts to get Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return to the side on loan in January.
Milan had been in negotiations to bring Ibrahimovic in on loan during the MLS off-season, but the parties failed to agree terms.
As a result, manager Gennaro Gattuso is turning his attention elsewhere – and to Rashford, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.
However, prizing him away from Old Trafford may be difficult. Rashford has been a regular starter under Jose Mourinho this season, making 18 appearances in all competitions and scoring 3 goals. It is hard to see United considering any bid for the 20-year-old.
With that in mind, Gazzetta added that another potential target could be Liverpool’s Belgian striker Divock Origi. However, Origi has recently forced his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans and so this may lessen the chances of him being sold or let out on loan in January.
