Eric ten Hag wants Marcus Rashford and David De Gea to follow Luke Shaw’s example in committing to Manchester United with the deal for the Spanish goalkeeper expiring this summer and the striker next year.
Eric ten Hag wants to tie Marcus Rashford and David De Gea to new contracts after Luke Shaw agreed new terms at Manchester United.
Rashford has another 15 months left on his current £250,000-a-week deal, but United will have to consider selling the striker this summer if the two sides cannot reach an agreement amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
De Gea’s contract expired at the end of June and he had been negotiating with the club for some time over a pay cut on his £375,000-a-week deal.
Meanwhile, United are set to confirm that Shaw – who would also have been a free agent in 2024 – has re-signed.
‘If he falls,’ said Ten Hag, ‘I don’t know. I could not hear. (Football manager) John (Murtaug) hasn’t informed me yet. I have to wait for that.

Manager Ten Hag said he was keen to keep both senior players in his United squad
This came after Luke Shaw dedicated his future to the club by signing a new contract
If this is true, I’m glad. We definitely want to keep him because he’s a really important player for our team.”
And when asked if he would want Rashford and De Gea to follow suit, the United boss added: “Yes, I do.”
However, Ten Hag was less than willing to come forward in Rashford’s transfer negotiations. “It’s an internal process,” he said. We focus on winning matches.
Of course, we’re also planning ahead, so we’re working in the back on that. It’s about agents, it’s about director of football John Murtague. Rashi and I are focused on performing.
Ten Hag will hope Rashford can play for Newcastle on Sunday after shrugging off the injury that kept him off England duty.
The 25-year-old has scored 30 goals for club and country so far this season, but Ten Hag insists there is no secret formula for getting the best out of a player.
He said, “I’m not Harry Potter.” “It’s like a process, so there are many tools that you put in your management to allow people to get into the best shape and best shape.
So it’s about the lineup, the gameplay. It’s about coaching, conversations, and informality. It’s about the coaches working with him and especially a lot about himself because he’s the one with the skills.”
