Erik ten Hag coy on contract situation of Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was coy when asked about the contract situation of in-form attacker Marcus Rashford, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2024 (transfermarkt).
The 25-year-old has been in fine form for the Red Devils in the current campaign. Since the arrival of the Dutch manager, the England international has seemingly found his feet once again after struggling in the previous campaign.
Speaking to the media via transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, when asked about discussions regarding Rashford’s future, Ten Hag stated that people would know as soon things materialise.
“When we have news, we’ll bring it immediately.”
The 25-year-old made his way through the youth ranks at the Old Trafford side. Subsequently, in the 2016/17 season, the England international became a regular member of the first team.
Thereafter, the forward became a key player for United. Unfortunately, in the previous campaign, he seemed to have lost confidence and barely had any impact.
Last season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick, Rashford lost his place in the starting lineup. He made 32 appearances in all competitions, scoring just five goals and providing two assists.
However, after impressing during pre-season, the 25-year-old has continued in a similar vein under Ten Hag. He is currently the Red Devils’ top goalscorer in the current campaign, finding the back of the net 27 times in all competitions.
Since the end of the 2022 World Cup, the England international has been prolific. The Dutch manager has opted to deploy him as a number nine on several occasions.
