Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp sends message to Manchester United star linked with a move to Anfield.

Liverpool have been linked with a shock move for Manchester United star Marcus Rashford , the Reds are reportedly monitoring the 24-year-old situation at Old Trafford.

Rashford role has been restricted to a bit-part role since Ralf Rangnick took charge at United back in November and has struggled to impress consistently for the Red Devils over the last few years.

The England international is said to be weighing up the possibility of a move away from United soon after growing frustrated with life as a backup.

The likes of Barcelona and Liverpool already monitoring the situation closely, according to the Manchester Evening News.

It would be a big surprise if Rashford ended up moving to Liverpool because of his Manchester roots and his fondness for United, the club he joined at the age of seven and where he has spent his entire professional career to date.

Jurgen Klopp is known as an admirer of Rashford, despite his connections with United, and he could be tempted to make an ambitious bid to secure his signature if the opportunity presents itself later.

“I am not sure I can find any better words than much smarter people have said but what Marcus has started there is absolutely incredible, it is so nice,” the Liverpool boss told reporters at the time.

“And with all the rivalry between the clubs, in these moments we are as footballers and as human beings always united.

He added “It’s just nice to show in a time when obviously a lot of people who are really in charge of something and don’t show any sign of proper leadership, that a boy grown up in difficult circumstances and blessed with sensational talent, obviously, never forgot his roots and where he is coming from, that he has to do it.

“It is a bit of a shame that he has to do it but it is wonderful as well. I hope his mother is really proud of him, I don’t know him but even I am proud of him. And he plays for United which makes it really tricky!”

It remains to be seen whether Marcus Rashford will risk the option of joining Liverpool if the Reds come knocking, with Barcelona also said to be interested in the United forward.
