Manchester City Colwill

Pep Guardiola has privately admitted that Marcus Rashford is the only Man United player good enough to play regularly for Man City. Sources report this statement made by Guardiola is true, actually.

Sources believe that the Spaniard rates Rashford’s talent and playing style very highly, to the extent that he would thrive in the all-conquering City team.

But Guardiola have told allies that he believes United’s other first-team stars do not have the capability to be a key player in Guardiola created system of City.

However, sources have told that the one doubt Guardiola has about Rashford, 26, is his combination play, something the manager puts great store in at City.

Rashford has had a relatively quiet campaign for the Reds Devils. He bagged five goals and six assists across 30 appearances in all competitions. However, he’s still 25 goals away from his haul last season.

The forward has faced criticism this season for his off-field antics and lack of contributions on the pitch. But Guardiola is adamant that he would prosper at the Etihad.

The England international has been heavily linked with a move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain. With superstar Kylian Mbappe set to depart at the end of the season.

However, sources have told that Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS outfit are keen to keep him at the club.

Despite his lack of goal contributions this season, Rashford remains a key player for Erik ten Hag. He started 25 games in all competitions.

Man City moved to second in the Premier League table after their 1-0 win against Brentford on Tuesday (20 February). Meanwhile Man United remain sixth.

City with Guardiola will next face Bournemouth on Saturday evening (24 February), while United play Fulham at Old Trafford.
