Erik ten Hag responds to PSG's interest in signing Marcus Rashford

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists Marcus Rashford remains firmly part of his plans amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The French champions have been in contact with Rashford’s representatives in recent days to discuss a potential move to Parc de Princes.

While the England international has endured a disastrous last 12 months at Old Trafford, he is not thought to be pushing for a move away with United valuing the player at a huge £120million.

And ten Hag insists the 24-year-old remains a key player under his management.

‘He’s a really important player, you have seen from the first day I’m here,’ ten Hag told a press conference on Friday ahead of the weekend clash with Brentford.

‘I’m really happy with him, I don’t want to lose him, he’s definitely in our plans at Manchester United.’

Rashford scored just four goals for United during a difficult 2021-22 season, missing the first three months of that campaign after undergoing surgery.

He started United’s opening game of the season last week against Brighton, slotting in on the left of United’s attack.

United are determined to hold onto Rashford with ten Hag also eager for the club to bring in a versatile winger and a back-up striker before the transfer window closes.

The Manchester club appear to have been priced out of a move for Ajax star Antony with United now considering a move for Feyenoord’s Cody Gakpo.

Up front, the club had explored a deal to sign former West Ham United striker Marko Arnautovic, only to end talks after a fierce backlash from frustrated supporters.

United have also been offered the chance to sign former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.
