Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has fielded questions over Marcus Rashford’s prolonged contract saga.
Rashford’s deal was set to expire this summer but the Red Devils triggered a one-year extension clause earlier in the season, giving them further time to thrash out terms over a fresh contract.
Though talks are ongoing, the forward has not yet committed his long-term future to Man Utd and there has been minor but growing unrest among fans that their star forward could leave.
Ten Hag was asked about Rashford’s contract situation ahead of Saturday’s trip to Bournemouth and if he knew the reasons why a new deal hasn’t been signed yet.
“Yes, I know [why], but I don’t talk about the process. Let the process go,” Ten Hag replied.
“Once again, this is not important at the moment for me or Rashy. For him, it is to get more goals this season and he is playing a wonderful season and the team is playing a wonderful season. We have to get into the Champions League and focus on that.
“Marcus wants to stay and we want him to stay, so I think we will find each other.”

90min reported in March 2022 that Rashford was considering his future at Man Utd having endured his worst statistical season, ending the campaign with just five goals in 32 games.
He was the subject of interest from PSG later that summer but Man Utd stood firm and kept him at Old Trafford.
Rashford has since taken his game to another and put in his best season to date, grabbing 29 goals in 53 games in all competitions thus far. He has also been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Season and PFA Fans’ Player of the Year awards.
