Rumour: Rashford and Manchester United reject Tottenham offer

Marcus Rashford has reportedly snubbed Tottenham’s interest in staying at Manchester United.

According to the Times, Spurs were hoping to land the England international in a bid to help him get back to his best form.

The 24-year-old has fallen out of favor for club and country after a terrible 2021/22 campaign.

Rashford has scored just five goals in all competitions after the start of his season was disrupted by a serious shoulder injury.

However, it is understood that Rashford, who has one year left on his contract at Old Trafford, has decided to stay and try to impress new United manager Erik ten Hag.

The United striker had established himself as one of Europe’s most exciting young players before the long dip in form.

Tottenham are looking for a versatile striker who can play on their front three – and The Times are also reporting that Manchester City have offered them Gabriel Jesus.

He has the appeal of being English, of helping Tottenham reach the local player quota, and has one year left on his contract. However, Spurs have learned that Rashford would like to stay at United and try to impress Erik ten Hag, who has arrived as head coach.

Rashford scored 56 goals and set up 37 more in the three seasons before a miserable 2021-22, despite several injuries. Getting a fair run under new management might do him good, but his contract and rumors of potential moves elsewhere won’t go away anytime soon if he doesn’t get back to form.
