Marcus Rashford set for showdown talks with Erik ten Hag

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is set to hold talks with Erik ten Hag over his future amidst interest from rivals Arsenal.

Marcus Rashford’s future has been up in the air in recent weeks following his exclusion from the England squad for UEFA Euro 2024. Arsenal are one of the clubs that have been linked with him and according to a report from GIVEMESPORT, the English winger is all set to hold crunch talks with Erik ten Hag regarding his future at Manchester United.

The Manchester United academy graduate had an exceptional 2022/23 season, where he scored 30 goals and bagged 10 assists. It seemed the 26-year-old had reached the peak of his powers. But everything came crashing down last season as he struggled to fire.

In his 43 outings during the 2023/24 campaign, the English international could not even score 10 goals. He had a total of 13 goal contributions throughout the season. It was a massive dip when compared to the previous season. Because of his poor form, he was left out of Gareth Southgate’s squad for Euro 2024.

Rashford is keen on bouncing back after a poor campaign last time out. The report suggests that Rasmus Hojlund’s arrival resulted in a change in tactics, which played a part in the versatile forward’s downfall. Recently, there has been some speculation about the future of the Manchester United academy graduate, and Arsenal have been linked with him.

Arsenal to sign Rashford?

The Gunners are looking to further bolster their ranks, with Mikel Arteta keen on bringing in a world-class goalscorer. Rashford could be an ideal addition to their squad as he can feature anywhere in attack and has an eye for goal.

While the North London club did discuss bringing him to the club, they have decided against pushing for the services of the English forward, who is on a massive £300,000-per-week contract.

No doubt Rashford is set to hold talks with ten Hag about his future at the club, but he is not looking to push for a move away from the club. The 26-year-old wants to understand his role going into next season. The Dutch manager is expected to give him a clear idea of how things will work, and the club are expected to back their poster boy to return to his best.
