Is Rashford the answer? Spurs mull shocking move for out-of-favor Man United forward

There is a distinct possibility that Tottenham Hotspur will move for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford if Richarlison departs White Hart Lane this summer, per the Telegraph.

Spurs are looking to increase the ceiling of the roster available to Ange Postecoglou as they look to build on the progress under the Australian gaffer through a combination of sharp-witted signings and cultivating the development of promising youngsters. In Rashford, they will be making a witty signing by not only robbing straight rivals of their star player but also getting a compounded PL-proven quality in their ranks.

Alongside the Lilywhites, there have also been talks of a possible move to Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea are also looking to sign the England international. 

Rashford has struggled to find his footing at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag this season, as the United Academy graduate has just recorded eight goals in 42 appearances in the recently concluded campaign, which is a massive depreciation from his tally of 30 goals in 56 games last season. His struggles in front of goal have led to his being omitted from Gareth Southgate’s 33-man provisional England squad for the EURO 2024 this summer.

A United exit will be an appealing measure for the officials at Carrington, as that would relieve the club of Rashford’s hefty £375,000-a-week wages. However, it is to be seen if they would sell him to Premier League rivals.

We have seen Daniel Levy refusing to let Harry Kane leave for either United or City owing to the Premier League rivalry, and United could reciprocate that this summer with Rashford.

This comes as an interesting rumor, especially if Spurs establish concrete interest in one of England’s most talented forwards off late.
