If Marcus Rashford leaves Manchester United it should be for Tottenham Hotspur

The attacker is not happy with his role at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, according to reports.

Reports today are suggesting that Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford is contemplating his future at the club. The Mirror report that the young talent is unhappy at being used mostly as a substitute at Old Trafford in recent weeks under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.

The report quotes a source as suggesting if Mourinho stays, then Rashford might be forced into turning his back on his beloved boyhood club.

It would be a massive blow for Manchester United if he was to leave and, the likelihood remains that the England international will remain at Old Trafford and battle the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku for starting places.

But, if Rashford does decide he wants to make a move away from United and Mourinho, then Tottenham Hotspur must be the location he dreams of.

Why Spurs?

Mauricio Pochettino has been working wonders with young English talent since arriving in England with Southampton. Look at the development of players such as Luke Shaw, James Ward-Prowse, Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne. Then look at how impressive Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Danny Rose have been under his tutelage.

Rashford has all the raw talent and ability to be a star and Pochettino is the perfect man to mould that into a finished entity.

On top of that, Rashford could easily get first-team football at Tottenham Hotspur. Striker options are thin in North London, with Harry Kane the only in-form front-man. Rashford would give Pochettino the genuine option of playing two up front.

Rashford would need to battle with Heung-min Son for a place on the left. But considering Pochettino does like to rotate and keep the side fresh, the 20-year-old would see plenty of first-team action for Spurs.

Tottenham Hotspur is the place to be as a young player in the Premier League right now. If Rashford is going to push for a Manchester United exit, then Spurs should break the bank to bring him south.
