Marcus Rashford has been heavily linked with a move to French club Paris Saint-Germain as the striker seems to have dropped down the Old Trafford hierarchy.
They apparently have Rashford in their sights and would like to include the United striker in their all-star offensive lineup.
However, according to Erik ten Hag, Marcus Rashford will remain at Manchester United, despite rumors in the media to the contrary.
It is believed that Rashford is content at Old Trafford, and Ten Hag claims he is certain that he does not want him to leave the team.
He asserts that Marcus Rashford, who is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain, is still a key component of his ambitions for Manchester United.
Ten Hag declared on Friday that he was very significant.
“You have noticed that I am extremely delighted with him from the very first day I have been here.
He’s obviously in our plans at Manchester United, so I don’t want to lose him.”
When asked if the fugitive Cristiano Ronaldo would face Brentford on Saturday, Ten Hag was more reserved.
Ronaldo, who made an appearance in Brighton’s opening-day loss, is still pining for a transfer away from Old Trafford.
Ten Hag claims that his training this week has gone well, but he will not commit to starting.
“He had a successful training week. I believe he played for a little bit longer than 30 minutes; thus, he has played two halves, and tomorrow we will choose the starting lineup. I shall keep my decision to myself”
Anthony Martial and Victor Lindelof will miss the match against the Bees due to injuries, according to Ten Hag.
Victor Lindelof and Martial won’t be accessible this weekend, the actor added.
Ten Hag was also resolute throughout a trying week for United in the transfer market, during which time they were forced to give up on their pursuit of Marco Arnautovic due to enraged fans.
They still need to complete Adrien Rabiot’s £15 million transfer from Juventus, and their move for Frenkie de Jong, who is Ten Hag’s top goal, is still stalled because Chelsea is also interested in the Dutch ace.
Ten Hag declined to talk about specific objectives and insisted that he and the board worked together to make transfers.
“I believe that our cooperation is excellent. I am unable to discuss any players or those who are under contract with other clubs.”
United also had a difficult week as a result of their dismal loss to Brighton, which dashed any hope that had been raised by their successful preseason.
Due to their size and heritage, United will always be scrutinized, and the former Ajax manager says everyone at the club must learn to handle this.
Ten Hag, for instance, expressed his satisfaction with the club’s continuous efforts in the transfer market as they strive to bolster the roster for the remainder of the 2022–23 season.
According to several media reports, the 24-year-old, who has 93 goals in 304 games for his hometown team, could be of interest to other teams.
However, when the Dutchman spoke with journalists ahead of Saturday’s Premier League encounter against Brentford, he quickly played off the rumors.
