Erik Ten Hag tells Marcus Rashford to stay at Manchester United amidst PSG interest

According to the Telegraph, Marcus Rashford is attracting strong interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United are in discussions with Rashford’s representatives over a new deal with the 25-year-old entering the final 18 months of his current contract.

However, the player is thought to be firmly focused on his football.

Rashford has scored 17 goals for Manchester United this season and has also contributed with six assists.

The England forward scored three times at the World Cup.

Ten Hag spoke to the media ahead of Manchester United’s Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) semi-final against Nottingham Forest and the Dutchman was asked about the importance of keeping Rashford and how talks were progressing:

“The last (question) I can’t answer – it is confidential about talks between clubs and players.”

“I think he understands Man United is his club, that’s first but also, in this environment, in this team, I think he is playing his best football.”

“He is improving and that is about him because he’s working on the good things. He is giving 100 percent energy in it and he has a good plan and I think also in this team he can bring his qualities.”

“So this team can help him be in the right position and to score goals, which he is good at. This team is constructed that his qualities come to the fore and I think he knows that.”

“But, definitely yes, he is important for us and if we want to get the success we want – we need him,” said Ten Hag.
