It is just over two years since Marcus Rashford made his Manchester United debut.

The attacker made an instant impact at Old Trafford. He looked like a natural goalscorer and a potential future United and England regular.

But his development has stuttered somewhat over the last season-and-a-half.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival in the summer of 2016 forced Rashford out wide, where he has been less effective as a goalscorer.

And the January signing of Alexis Sanchez could reduce Rashford’s game time even more.

As a result, there have been suggestions the 20-year-old may have to leave United if he is to fulfil his clearly huge potential.

Former Chelsea striker Dennis Wise recently told Premier League Daily: “At some stage if he doesn’t get regular football that (leaving United) will be something of a consideration for him further down the line.” (Quote via Sky Sports).

The question is: would Rashford be an appropriate signing for Tottenham?

Mauricio Pochettino has an impressive track record when it comes to developing young English talent, and Rashford could thrive under his management.

Spurs have once again been linked with Wilfried Zaha in recent weeks, but there is an argument that Rashford would be more of an ideal signing.

He can play out wide or through the middle, meaning he could provide cover for Harry Kane as well as possibly partner Tottenham’s talisman.

Being English, Rashford would likely cost a lot of money – perhaps even more than Zaha. Still, it will be interesting to see if Spurs express an interest if he eventually becomes available.

  1. I would sooner see Rashford in Spurs shirt than Zaha. We need a decent 2nd striker as options to either play alongside Kane or as back up to Kane. And I think that Rashford is versatile enough to fit in with what Poch is trying to achieve

  2. I’ve used a 2 striker partnership with Rashford and Kane in career mode and it’s pretty devastating. and Son/Janssen is a great backup pairing

  3. Rashford, or Martial for that matter, would be a great signing, but I cannot see United letting either of them go. I would certainly rather have Rashford than Zaha, but there is little likelihood of this transfer transpiring, unless Rashford becomes further marginalised by Mourinho and feels completely frozen out of first team reckoning.

  4. We would struggle to sign any top class strikers because none would want to be back up to kane.I dont think we would want to pay the blown up fee for zaha or rashford. Get the young lad,arp,from hamburg,he likes kane and styles his play on him.He would jump at the chance of being kanes understudy and in time might be as good.
