Marcus Rashford wants some reassurances about his future at Man United…

Big changes are afoot at Manchester United. A new manager is in place. Erik ten Hag will bring fresh ideas and tactics with him.

Some players will naturally adjust. Others will fade off. That’s what makes football so intriguing.

We’ve earmarked a trio of players who could return to their best form under the Dutch manager – though one of those players isn’t prepared to commit himself fully to United just yet; Marcus Rashford.

It’s fair to say the £200k-a-week (Spotrac) star, has been struggling this season. He’s been in and out of the team since returning from injury, with consistent playing time a major factor as to why Rashford is underperforming. It’s also worth stating that he just hasn’t been playing well enough to warrant regular starts.

Well, now it’s being reported by the Manchester Evening News that Rashford ‘will seek greater clarity’ on his role at United under the new manager.

It has become common knowledge that after his tough term, Rashford has been considering his future at United, hence, he wants to understand how firmly involved he is when it comes to the future.

I find that troubling, in itself. It’s not a player’s job to concern himself with that. Rather, I’d much prefer Rashford get his head down, work hard, force his way back into the side and then find some good form.

The fact that Rashford is willingly trying to force United’s hand like this speaks to how toxic that dressing room has become. Major change is needed to turn it around, while the problem-causers need to be rooted out and moved on as soon as possible.

I genuinely believe that Rashford being omitted from the latest England squad is what has him worrying about what’s going to happen in the long term. He loves playing for his country, sometimes to the detriment of the club he supposedly loves.

There’s no doubt there would be many parties interested in making a move for Rashford based off his sheer talent. And in an ideal world, I’d love for him to stick around and get back to his best. Though if Ten Hag isn’t completely sold and wants to move Rashford on, then perhaps there’s no better time to cash in than right now.
