WHAT HAPPENED? The English forward's current contract expires next season, and he is yet to sign a new deal but the club are not prioritising contract talks with the player at the moment as they are fully focused on finishing the ongoing season on a high. United are determined to finish among the top four teams in the Premier League this season. They are currently one point above fifth-placed Liverpool with a game in hand.

Ten Hag also believes that Rashford wants to stay at United and he is hopeful of a positive outcome.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to reporters, Ten Hag said, "I know [it is taking time]. But I don't talk about the process. 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."
