Manchester United’s Rashford purchases a £240,000 private plane
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and his fiancée Lucia Loi reportedly purchased a Boeing 737 plane for a sum of £240,000 during the international break. The plane has a maximum capacity of 125 passengers. Rashford was unable to join the England squad due to a knock, which also resulted in him suffering a muscle injury.
Record-breaking brace against Leicester
Rashford had scored a record-breaking brace against Leicester after missing Three Lions duty. Unfortunately, his injury has kept him sidelined, and he may not be available for United’s upcoming quarter-final against Sevilla. United’s defense also suffered as their defensive stalwart Lisandro Martinez suffered a fractured metatarsal, and Raphael Varane was taken off early in the quarter-final first leg due to a knock.
Ten Hag doubtful about Rashford’s return
United boss Erik ten Hag expressed doubt about Rashford’s return in time for their second leg next Thursday. Given the injuries sustained by Martinez and Varane, United is now pinning their hopes on their top scorer’s return to fitness. Overall, Rashford’s purchase of a private plane has sparked some controversy. However, the star footballer’s on-field performance remains impressive despite his injury, and Manchester United fans are hoping for his swift recovery.
