Marcus Rashford has fired back at a Manchester United fan account on Twitter for an "out of context" quote about wanting to play for Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Rashford, 23, has become a fan favourite since emerging from United's youth ranks in 2016 and becoming a key member of the senior squad, scoring 88 goals in 270 appearances for the club.
The England international has also completed admirable acts off the field, gaining widespread plaudits for his tireless work to end child poverty in the UK.
Thus, the United faithful are hopeful that their academy graduate will enjoy a long and successful career at Old Trafford.
Nevertheless, quotes from Rashford's recent interview with The Guardian left Red Devils fans slightly concerned over his future plans.
When asked if he would like to play abroad, the forward is quoted as saying: "I would never say no."
He then added: "Other than United? I’m a big fan of Real Madrid and Barcelona, because they’ve always had great players and played attractive football.”
Rashford's comments about Madrid and Barcelona were reposted on Twitter by United fan account utdreport, but the man himself quickly hit back to reassure fans that his words were taken "out of context".
He replied: "If I remember rightly the question was ‘as a child, loving football, where would you have dreamed of playing?’…you’d be lying if, as a boy, you didn’t say you dreamt of playing for those clubs.
"Every child in every playground would say the same. This snippet is out of context."
Rashford still has two years remaining on his current United deal, which includes the option of a further 12 months.
He will bid to get his hands on a fourth trophy with the club on Wednesday night, when they take on Villarreal in the Europa League final.
