Marcus Rashford has revealed he would love to play in a front two with Harry Kane ahead of the World Cup finals this summer.

Both Rashford and Kane have been included in Gareth Southgate’s 23-man squad, and Kane is expected to captain the Three Lions in Russia.

Jamie Vardy and Danny Welbeck are the other strikers in the squad, but Rashford believes Kane would be the ideal partner for him.

“I’d like to play as a two up front,” Rashford told EA Sports (via the Star).

“Kane is a good partner to work with. He keeps his game simple so it make things simple for you and that would be exciting.”

Rashford’s comments raise an interesting question: should Tottenham pursue Rashford this summer?

The 20-year-old has been in and out of the Manchester United team this season under Jose Mourinho.

He has scored 13 goals in all competitions, two more than his overall tally of 11 last season.

With Fernando Llorente likely to leave Spurs in the coming weeks, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for a new deputy for Kane.

But this time, Tottenham would be wise to recruit a player who can both partner and provide cover for their talisman.

Rashford would be ideal, although he will be expensive if Mourinho makes him available.

What’s more, United may not be keen on selling him to a top six rival.

What do you think? Should Spurs move for Rashford this summer? Let us know in the comments.



  1. There’s a swap deal to be done, here. If Manchester United want Toby, we could do a lot worse than take Rashford, in return…and he’s be a boost to our “homegrown” quota. It’s not as if Jose is a stranger to swap deals, either, having exchanged Mhikitarian for Sanchez.

  2. I don’t see it happening but would like him to join Spurs. The comments that Jose has been saying aimed at him and Martial are completely disrespectful and I think both deserve an easy passage out of the club.

  3. Rashford in the right hands could be a real asset . He has pace and can go past defenders. I would love to see this swop done. Rashford is still young and can still improve. Alderweield is looking for a big last contract and who can blame him. Rashford is hungry for game time and is being overlooked by Mourinho at Man utd. Get the swop done I say.

  4. Cant see united letting him go and he is a United fan so I doubt he would push for a move. I would rather Vardy.
