Marcus Rashford would be forced to consider his future at Manchester United if the Red Devils were to sign Justin Kluivert in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Express is reporting that Manchester United are apparently closing in on a deal to sign the 18-year-old Kluivert from Ajax in the summer transfer window.

However, the same story says that any move for Manchester United to bring in Kluivert this summer would be bad news for Rashford as it would present even more competition for a place in the line-up at Old Trafford.

It is suggested that the proposed signing of the 18-year-old from Ajax would move Rashford even further down the pecking order in Manchester United’s team.

The 20-year-old is already having to contend with fresh competition in attack following the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal last month.

Rashford has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Manchester United this season and he will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Old Trafford between now and the end of the season.

Manchester United are currently second in the Premier League and 13 points behind leaders Manchester City.
