Marcus Rashford Transfer
According to rumors, Marcus Rashford has rejected the chance to join Tottenham Hotspur this summer, preferring to remain at Manchester United and compete for a starting spot. After undergoing shoulder surgery in the summer, Rashford struggled to recapture his best form last season.
During Ralf Rangnick’s interim managership, the 24-year-old only made 32 appearances for United in all competitions, scoring five goals. Moving forward, Rashford will need to impress new manager Erik ten Hag.
However, with United looking to pursue a flexible offensive option, Ten Hag could face additional challenges as part of his much-needed rebuild. Darwin Nunez has been linked with a move to Liverpool, who appear to be the frontrunners to sign him.
United has a one-year extension option on Rashford’s contract, which he has through the end of this season. Tottenham is reportedly interested in signing Rashford this summer, according to Caught Offside, but The Times claims Rashford is adamant about staying at United and becoming a vital player.
In other news, ESPN says that if United wants to sign Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona this summer, they’ll face stiff competition from PSG. De Jong is a clear target for United, with Barcelona rumored to be willing to transfer the 24-year-old to alleviate their financial woes.
De Jong is expected to fetch roughly £70 million, allowing Barcelona to pursue other transfer targets. If the 41-cap international joins United, he will be reunited with Ten Hag, his mentor and former Ajax boss.
Three years after his arrival at the Nou Camp from Ajax, PSG wants to enter the competition for De Jong.
