This season has possibly been the most frustrating one of Rashford’s professional career having started just 13 league games and returning only four goals with that sort of form seeing him stuck on the bench from the start in recent weeks.
Is Rashford good enough for Man United?
With a new manager set to arrive in the summer as well, Rashford’s future is not certain to be at Old Trafford which has seen reports suggest that the winger is looking to leave Man United, the club he’s grown up with.
Romano though has revealed that Rashford will speak with Ten Hag before deciding anything but knows he has to play more games.
“He needs to clarify his position because he wants to play in the World Cup and he knows that he can’t continue like this he needs to be a regular starter and an important player for his club so he will have a discussion with Erik Ten Hag in the coming weeks.
He wants to continue at Man United and that’s always been his priority but not this way, he wants to change the situation around him. So, if Man United and Erik Ten Hag will be able to guarantee him being a starter and an important player for us, he will be happy to stay.
If not, keep an eye on Marcus Rashford because he could be an opportunity on the market and one of the names to watch because he wants to play in the World Cup for England and he wants to be a regular starter.”
TIF Thoughts on Rashford’s future…
Rashford has gone from a regular for Man United starting at least 26 games in each of the last four seasons to now struggling to sometimes even get meaningful minutes off the bench, so he will have a lot of work to do this pre-season if he’s to impress Erik ten Hag, who is said to already be eyeing up a winger signing this summer in the form of Steven Bergwijn with the pair having worked together at Ajax.
It’s clear from Romano’s comments that Rashford wants to stay at Man United which is no surprise given he’s come through the club’s academy system, however, he can’t let emotional pulls stop him from reaching his full potential and maybe missing out on a spot in the England squad.
