EPL: What Erik ten Hag told Manchester United about Marcus Rashford
Incoming Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has told the club’s hierarchy not to sell Marcus Rashford, according to the Sun.
According to several reports, Manchester United would be announcing Erik ten Hag as their new permanent manager soon.
And as he prepares to take over the hot seat, the Dutchman has reportedly told the club’s chiefs not to go ahead with any move to sell the England star amid suggestions he could leave in the summer.
The Sun reports that United chiefs are hoping to convince the England international to stay on.
Rashford’s frustration at Old Trafford heightened after his latest omission from the 1-1 draw with Leicester despite being the club’s only recognised striker.
Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have already indicated interests to sign the England forward, but United are still showing faith in him.
A source told the Sun, “Marcus is having a really tough time this season — especially in the games where he has not started even though United didn’t have another striker available.
“It’s happened a couple of times, so he is concerned that Ralf Rangnick just doesn’t fancy him.
“But the club have let him know that the contenders for the manager’s job have told them that he is a vital asset to the club – and would still figure strongly in their plans to rebuild.
“So now, Marcus is just staying calm.”
