Antonio Conte’s side believe they can help Rashford return to his best after endured a disappointing 2021-22 season.

According to The Times, Tottenham have been told the 24-year-old wants to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford.

Rashford is reportedly hoping to impress new boss Erik ten Hag ahead of new contract talks.

Starting last season with a shoulder injury, Rashford started just 13 Premier League games.

His contract expires for another year, and United will begin talks later this summer.

Ten Hag is on vacation and has yet to contact his players.

But there is hope that the Dutchman can get Rashford’s career back on track.

United are expected to bolster their squad this summer, with the Spurs targeting Christian Eriksen on their wish list.

Club chiefs are hopeful that their new manager can get more out of their current crop – with Rashford identified as a player who can deliver much better performances with better guidance.

The homegrown hero gets the chance to impress during the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.

Meanwhile, the Spurs seem to want to say goodbye to attacker Steven Bergwijn.

The Dutchman has admitted he wants to leave North London for more regular first team football.

As well as further options for attackers, Tottenham are looking to bolster their defenses this summer.

The Lilywhites are fond of Villarreal defender Pau Torres, with Giovani Lo Celso potentially being used as a makeweight in a deal.

Tottenham have completed two transfers so far this summer, welcoming free players Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.
