star plans to make it clear to Erik ten Hag that he wants a clearly defined role on the left of his attack this season.

Rashford was among the United players to return to training this week as officially began under the new manager.

United ended a miserable 2021-22 season without silverware and in sixth place with a number of players enduring particularly underwhelming campaigns.

Rashford was among them, benched for key games with it later emerging the 24-year-old was considering his future at the club.

The forward is now said to be eager to impress the new manager while recent reports have suggested Rashford could be used as a striker during United’s pre-season campaign which includes friendlies against Liverpool, Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

But according to , the England international will make it clear this season that he wants a ‘defined position on the left’.

Rashford has excelled in that role over the years but will face competition for Jadon Sancho, with the former Borussia Dortmund star showing his brightest glimpses last season out on the left.

United still hope to make more additions in attack with ten Hag eager to raid former side Ajax for right winger Antony.

The Dutch giants however are holding out for £70million  for the Brazil international.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future has also come under scrutiny amid claims the 37-year-old is considering his options this summer.

United insist however that the Portugal international will not be sold.
