Then it is about the club, it is about them, it is about me, it is about Mr Levy but fundamentally it is about the players being happy.

As for his own feelings at taking over a side who finished as runners-up in last season's Champions League, he said: "I've been smiling for two days".

Manchester United were heavily linked with the Argentinian after they fired Mourinho 11 months ago, but the incumbent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is thought to retain the backing of the club's board despite a mixed start to the season. The Portuguese manager has insisted that the club do not sell Harry Kane.

Despite Mauricio Pochettino being available following his sacking from Tottenham, Rashford is certain there is "no better person" for the United job than Solskjaer.

England global Rashford committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new deal during the summer, the 22-year-old insisting he had no reservations about extending his stay at the club and has backed manager Solskjaer as the right man for the job.

Mandzukic's inactivity has prompted United to shift their focus elsewhere, however, and Dzeko, also 33, has emerged as a leading target due to his Premier League experience with City - the Bosnia global scored 50 goals in 130 league games for the club - and recent form with Roma, where he has netted six goals in 15 appearances so far this season.

At the point of his arrival at Tottenham in 2014 they had only achieved top four end of season placings twice.

"There was no hesitation from me over signing a new contract", Rashford told Sky Sports News.

"I could see where his head was at, where he wanted the club to be at and for me, it was just a no-brainer".

'If we blueprint as much as secure some trophies and secure ourselves into the tip four then, take into accout that, it has been a a success season.

"For me, it's just about putting markers down for what we can do in the future because we know this period is not going to change overnight, Ole's not going to get what he wants overnight".

'We were on the same page and wished the same things for the club.

Rashford stated: "Ole is a good man and he has the membership's pursuits at coronary heart".
