Manchester United dismiss the possibility of Marcus Rashford joining Tottenham this summer with out-of-form striker prepared to ‘reset and refresh under Erik ten Hag’ – after only 13 Premier League starts last season
- Manchester United have dismissed Tottenham links to Marcus Rashford
- The 24-year-old striker is keen to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his spot
- He endured a torrid spell last campaign, managing only 13 Premier League starts
Manchester United have dismissed the prospect of Marcus Rashford joining Tottenham.
United sources say the England international striker is ready to ‘reset and refresh under Erik Ten Hag’.
United want to add a striker but are assessing other options rather than get embroiled in an auction with Liverpool for Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.
Manchester United have dismissed the prospect of Marcus Rashford joining Tottenham
The England striker is keen to be part of Erik ten Hag’s new formula at Old Trafford
The 24-year-old endured a torrid season at Old Trafford, managing just four goals and two assists in the Premier League across the campaign, and Spurs have been linked with a move.
With one year left on Rashford’s contract, the Red Devils may have been tempted to cash in on the winger now rather than risk losing him later on a free transfer – a fate the club ultimately accepted with Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard this summer.
New Dutch boss Ten Hag has taken over the reins following a season of turmoil at Old Trafford, which saw the Red Devils finish sixth in the Premier League and concede a club-record high of 57 goals across the campaign.

Rashford was also deemed surplus to requirements on many occasions, recording his lowest appearances total at the club (25) since 2015-16.
Only 13 of these caps came from the first whistle, with the rest occurring off the substitutes’ bench.
Ten Hag, who is reportedly on holiday, will team up with his new troops on June 27 as the United squad returns to full training.
Rashford will be eager to send a message to his new boss with hard work on the training ground as he looks for a fresh start away from last season.
