The enigmatic Erik ten Hag, strategist of Manchester United, has expressed his belief that the prodigious Marcus Rashford will soon secure a fresh contract with the club. Despite the fact that Rashford’s current agreement is set to expire after the upcoming season, ten Hag remains unflappable, even in the face of speculation that the young forward is expecting £500,000 each week to extend his tenure at Old Trafford. During a recent press conference, ten Hag intimated that both he and Rashford are focused on the immediate task at hand, which is to ensure that United gains entry to the Champions League. Nevertheless, the uncertainty stemming from the Glazer family’s acquisition bid has compounded matters, casting a pall over the team’s transfer prospects. While ten Hag did acknowledge that he remains diligent behind the scenes, he stressed that the priority now is performing well in the remaining league matches and the FA Cup final against Manchester City. Speaking ahead of the next contest versus Bournemouth, ten Hag went on to say that United must improve their overall performance on the field, as eight of their nine league losses have been away from home. Lastly, he refused to be drawn into discussing the possibility of thwarting Manchester City’s quest for a treble, noting that it is imperative that, firstly, United maintain their focus on the upcoming game.
