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.
