Report: Tottenham see approach for Marcus Rashford rejected
Tottenham have seen an approach for Marcus Rashford rejected with the Manchester United forward determined to try and prove himself at Old Trafford, according to a report from The Times.
Spurs are still on the lookout for a new forward as they look to provide competition and cover for Harry Kane. Of course, it is not an easy task given how important Kane continues to be for Antonio Conte’s men.
Reports claim they want Gabriel Jesus. But he is not the only Manchester-based striker on Tottenham’s radar, it seems.
It has recently been suggested that they have held talks with Rashford’s agents. And it seems that Tottenham did indeed approach Manchester United with an offer.
The Times reports that Spurs have seen an approach turned down by United. Fabio Paratici has been told that Rashford wants to stay and fight for his place with Erik ten Hag coming in.
Rashford really struggled for form this past season. Nevertheless, The Times reported that Manchester United are planning to open contract talks with the England international.
Tottenham approach for Rashford rejected
Some Spurs fans may not be too disappointed to hear that they have missed out on Rashford. Unfortunately, he has had a tough time. And he has looked nothing like the player who appeared destined to go on and become one of the best forwards in the world.
But he is only 24. And he is closing in on a century of goals for Manchester United. He has been labelled ‘unbelievable‘ in the past. And Spurs seem to think that he can get back to that level in the future.
Unfortunately for Tottenham, it appears that they will have to look elsewhere for their striker signing during the coming months.
