Man Utd boss Ten Hag claims he knows why Rashford hasn’t signed a new contract but asks fans to ‘trust the process’

ERIK TEN HAG says he knows why Marcus Rashford hasn’t signed a new contract.

However, the Manchester United manager declined to reveal the reason for this as the Red Devils’ talisman enters the final year of his current contract at the end of this season.

The club have been trying unsuccessfully for six months to get Rashford to pen a new five-year, £300,000-a-week deal.

But SunSport are aware that the 25-year-old forward is waiting to see what potential new owners of the club would offer him.

When asked why there was a delay, Ten Hag said: “I know, but I’m not talking about the process. Let go of the process.

“Once again: this is not important to me or Rashy at the moment.

For him it’s all about scoring more goals this season and he’s having a wonderful season – and the team is having a wonderful season.

“We have to get to the Champions League and focus on that.

“Marcus wants to stay and we want him to stay, so I think we’ll find each other.”

Rashford is United’s top scorer this season with 29 goals.


He missed last weekend’s 2-0 win against Wolves through injury.

But he was ready to return for his trip to Bournemouth on Saturday after training all week until yesterday when he was again in doubt due to illness.

United go into the game a point clear of fifth-placed Liverpool with one game left.
