Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Manchester United will exercise their option to extend Marcus Rashford and Diogo Dalot’s contracts.
Rashford and Dalot have both had successful seasons under ten Hag, but they are nearing the end of their contracts at Old Trafford.
Paris Saint-Germain have long admired the England international, and club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi revealed last week that the club will try to sign him on a free transfer next year.
Rashford will be free to negotiate with foreign clubs as of January, according to Al-Khelaifi, who believes the French giants will begin talks with the United star in January.
Meanwhile, Dalot has been linked with a move to Barcelona..
Ten Hag, on the other hand, is unconcerned about the duo’s future, claiming that United will exercise the option to extend their contracts until 2024, with new deals also being discussed..
‘We are talking to them about contract extensions, but we have control because we have options on all of the players, which we will exercise,’ says the manager. ten Hag stated.
PSG held talks with Rashford’s representatives over the summer, and the French champions are still keen to sign the 25-year-old.
‘Again, he is another player who is really amazing, and for free, to have Rashford for free, every club would definitely chase him,’ says one. Al-Khelaifi confirmed PSG’s previous attempts to sign the United star to Sky Sports..
There is no denying it; we discussed it previously, but the timing was not favorable for both parties.
Maybe, why not, summer? However, if he is a free agent today, we can speak with him directly, but we will not do so.
‘Let him concentrate on the World Cup, and hopefully we’ll talk to him in January.’
Rashford reiterated his desire to stay in Manchester and play for his boyhood club in response to PSG’s interest in the summer.[I’m] completely [committed]. That is a non-negotiable for me.’ Rashford revealed to Sky Sports in August.
‘The one thing that hasn’t changed is your dedication and commitment to training and games.
Whatever the situation, I feel obligated to give my all for myself, my family, my friends, and the fans.
For me, I’ve always wanted to stay at Manchester United for as long as possible and compete for trophies. Hopefully, we can get back to doing that, and I’m definitely pushing for it..
