The departure of David De Gea from Manchester United is bringing new criticism to Marcus Rashford. The club announced on Friday that the 32-year-old goalkeeper has officially left. David De Gea expressed his heartfelt farewell on social media. He thanked everyone for their love and support over the past 12 years.
The Spanish star expressed his gratitude, saying, “We’ve achieved a lot since my dear Sir Alex Ferguson brought me to this club. Representing this institution, the biggest club in the world, was an honor bestowed upon a few lucky footballers.”
Other fans and players also shared farewell messages on social media. However, it was the message from English striker Rashford that grabbed everyone’s attention.
Rashford posted a picture of him embracing De Gea on Instagram with the caption: “Caption ideas: You were here from my breakthrough, good luck with your next stepbrother.”
Fans expressed disappointment upon discovering that the farewell message of the beloved player was written by his management team. They referred to him as “chatgpt pro” and criticized him as being “fake af.” Marcus faced further criticism from fellow United supporters, and this time, the backlash is maybe justified.
Some fans were quick to point out that Rashford might be using the help of the AI from ChatGPT for this post. The current post has undergone editing, and the comments have been temporarily disabled.

Onana is well acquainted with Ten Haag’s system, having served as his goalkeeper during Ajax’s remarkable journey to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
Following his time at Ajax, the Cameroonian keeper made a move to Inter Milan, where he reached the final of the Champions League last season. The Italian club is reportedly demanding a fee of $66 million for their talented shot-stopper.
The deal is still in its early stages, and there are various possibilities going forward. However, the English club has identified Onana as their top choice to replace David De Gea. While other names like David Raya and Kevin Trapp have also been mentioned, Onana is currently the club’s primary target.
