Erik ten Hag gives defiant response when asked about Marcus Rashford's Man United future

Erik ten Hag says Manchester United is Marcus Rashford's club and has urged him to stay at Old Trafford amid Paris Saint-Germain interest.

Rashford is into the last 18 months of his £200,000-a-week contract, with Ten Hag hoping to tie him down to a new deal.

The 25-year-old, who's enjoying a prolific run of form, has attracted interest from PSG who are thought to be keeping tabs on his contract situation.

But the Dutch boss believes the star forward should remain at Man United, stating that he wants to build the team around him to make them the best team in the world.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, he said: "I think he understands Man United is his club, that’s first. But also, in this environment, in this team, I think he is playing his best football.

"Then, I would say this is the best place to be because we want to construct the best team, first in England, then in Europe, then in the world."

On Rashford, he added: "He is improving and that is about him because he is giving 100 per cent energy. I think also in this team he can bring his qualities.

"This team is constructed so that his qualities come to the fore and I think he knows that.

"But definitely he is important for us and if we want to get the success we want, we need him."

Ten Hag has helped resurrect Rashford, who has scored an impressive 16 goals in all competitions this season.

He continued his brilliant goal-scoring ways with a stunning strike in his side's 3-2 defeat to Arsenal last weekend.

It's a far cry from his campaign last season as he bagged just five goals.

But, after a superb World Cup campaign with England, Rashford is full of confidence and back to his very best.

Will he commit his future to Man United? Let us know what you think.
