Marcus Rashford was spotted cosying up with Colombian-born model Erica Correa on a night out in Manchester on Sunday evening, according to reports. The Manchester United star is thought to have been single since splitting with his teenage sweetheart Lucia Loi in the summer of 2023. The then-couple, both 26, first started dating at the age of 15 while studying at Ashton on Mersey school in Greater Manchester, and Rashford proposed to Loi in May 2022 during a post-season get-away in California.  But the relationship is believed to have ‘run its course’ when the pair decided to separate a year later in June, with sources at the time claiming the couple remained ‘very close friends’. Rashford prompted speculation that he had reconciled with his ex-fiancee in November last year when the pair were spotted having dinner at a French wine bar in Manchester, but Loi and the England international have not been spotted together publicly since. As per the Sun, Rashford has now moved on from his former relationship, and is said to have grown close with Correa – with the pair seen spending time together on Sunday evening at late-night bar BLVD Manchester.  Marcus Rashford is thought to have spent a night out with Colombian-born model Erica CorreaThe 29-year-old grew up in Liverpool but has travelled the globe working as a model for a range of different brands Rashford was described by a source as appearing to be ‘having a ball’ with Correa on Sunday A source told the publication: ‘Whatever his form on the pitch, off of it ­Marcus is delivering the goods.’He looked like the cat that got the cream on Erica’s arm. They were having a ball.’Marcus and Erica were tactile and clearly enjoying each other’s company.’The pair are believed to have finished the evening in the bar’s VIP area at the Slow Jam Soiree – an R&B night at the venue – with Rashford’s entourage said to be shielding the couple from prying eyes as they enjoyed an intimate conversation. A spokesperson for Rashford confirmed to the Sun that the player had enjoyed an evening with friends at the nightclub. Correa, 29, grew up in Liverpool, and her career as a model has seen her based in India, Greece, Italy, and the US. As well as featuring in magazines such as GQ, Grazia, Harper’s Bazaar, Women’s Health, and Ella, Correa also played a starring role in Tom Grennan’s music video for his single ‘Sober’. Rashford has struggled for even form this season under manager Erik ten Hag, with fans earlier in the campaign wondering if his relationship with Loi had been a ‘lucky charm’ for the academy graduate.  The 26-year-old was previously engaged to his girlfriend from secondary school, Lucia Loi (pictured in 2023)As well as modelling for photoshoots and advertising campaigns, Correa has also featured in music videosThe player spoke up about the pressure he has found himself under amid a difficult season on Friday, when he shared on social media that he had received ‘months of abuse’ from certain supporters. Rashford could yet look to rediscover his prodigious form away from Old Trafford, with reports that the club may put their star up for sale over the summer as new part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe pulls off a complete overhaul on the squad. The 26-year-old is one of a number of regular starters who could be moved on during the upcoming transfer window, with Paris Saint-Germain – who held talks with Rashford’s representatives two years ago – thought to still have the player under consideration.   While United are not thought to be actively working to axe players, they must first raise money through sales in order to bolster their limited transfer budget.The club are believed to be keen to sign a new striker, central midfielder and right-sided centre back but may be unable to splash big fees like in recent years. The player’s representatives confirmed to the Sun that he had spent the night with friends The forward has been struggling for even form throughout the 2023-24 campaign under head coach Erik ten Hag Manchester United are looking for an immediate bounce-back against Crystal Palace next week after drawing with Burnley (pictured)Should United miss out on European football altogether next season, they would have to adopt a drastic sell to buy policy. Their ability to spend ahead of next season has been hamstrung by their £555million spend over the previous three summers.Just three players – Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho, and Rasmus Hojlund – are thought to be considered ‘off-limits’. Ten Hag’s side will look renew plans to end their season on a high note in the wake of a limp 1-1 draw with Burnley last weekend against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday. Alongside a bid for the European places, the squad will also look to contest their second-consecutive FA Cup final next month, against last season’s victorious opposition, Manchester City.
