In the midst of rumors regarding his future, Marcus Rashford reportedly told Manchester United that he wants to stay at the team past the summer transfer window. The disorganized winger’s newfound views on Erik ten Hag, though, will not aid in ten Hag’s prospects of staying manager for the upcoming campaign.

Ten Hag, who scored 30 goals in 56 appearances across all competitions, assisted Rashford in setting a career-high goal total last season.

His remarkable achievements have earned him a lucrative new contract worth £300,000 per week through 2028.

But in an otherwise disappointing second season for Ten Hag, Rashford has drastically declined, scoring just eight goals in 40 games.

The 26-year-old has garnered negative media attention for his off-field antics, which include a party in Manchester shortly after losing the derby 3-0 and his bender in Belfast the night before missing practice due to illness.

Rashford is available for a possible sale, as INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe are anticipated to supervise an Old Trafford departure this summer.

The Athletic claim that if the misfiring academy graduate says he wants to take on a new challenge, United will take reasonable offers into consideration.

HITC claims that Rashford has informed his boyhood team that he plans to stay and work hard to find his best form again the following season.

For the majority of the season, Rashford has been a definite starter on the left flank despite his ongoing difficulties. After the summer, he will be hoping to benefit from playing for a better team.

Whether Ten Hag will be in charge for the 2024–2025 season is still up in the air. After the FA Cup final on May 25 against Manchester City, Ratcliffe and INEOS are anticipated to make a decision regarding his future.

Previous managers have found themselves fatally out of the Champions League, and it is now official that United will not be participating in Europe’s top competition the following season.

However, Ten Hag could save himself by winning a major trophy for the second time in as many years after United’s six-year drought ended in February 2023 with the Carabao Cup.

Ten Hag’s credentials are currently being investigated by new technical director Jason Wilcox, who is conducting a one-month audit that includes evaluating Ten Hag’s interactions with his staff and dressing room.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Rashford has lost faith in the 54-year-old coach after a miserable few months.

Even defeating United’s fiercest rivals to win the coveted cup might not be enough to convince Ratcliffe against starting over if the same sentiment has taken hold throughout Carrington.
