Erik ten Hag issues fresh update on Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford futures

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has again said he ‘loves’ Marcus Rashford, as he claims that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t told him he wants to quit the club.

Reports emerged this summer that Ronaldo wants to leave Man United for a Champions League club but so far, he hasn’t agreed a deal with any club.

The likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid were all linked with a move to sign the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Although reports emerged this week that Cristiano Ronaldo remains keen on dumping Manchester United this summer, Erik ten Hag has claimed that the Portuguese star is telling him a totally different thing compared to what has been said about Ronaldo across social media.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s clash against Brentford, the former Ajax manager said: “That is your assumption [that Cristiano Ronaldo wishes to leave]. That is not what he is telling me.”

Reports emerged this week that PSG are interested in signing Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and reports in France claimed the talks between The Parisians and Rashford’s entourage were ‘advancing positively’.

Some outlets claimed that the 24-year-old is keen on moving to Parc des Princes as he would love a new challenge, having spent eight years in the first team at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag was asked if he has talked to Marcus Rashford about the interest from France and he said: “Not yet but he knows I love him, he knows I want him to be here so I will tell him that again.”

Cristiano Ronaldo has into the final year of his contract, although he has an option to extend it by further 12 months at the end of this season.

Marcus Rashford has a year left on his current deal and also has the clause to extend it by further 12 months.
