Erik Ten Hag Is Studying Marcus Rashford, With The Growing Suspicion That He, And The Club, Would Be Better Off if He Were Sold

| According to The Telegraph, Erik ten Hag is analysing Marcus Rashford, with a growing sense that he, and the club, might actually benefit from him being sold.

| Ten Hag also wants to find why Harry Maguire appears to be more comfortable playing for England. Despite signing Raphael Varane, with question marks over Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly, United may target a left-sided centre-back and move Maguire across.

| There is a feeling that Ronaldo, with another year of contract, will decide his own future and whether he stays. It is understood that Rangnick recommended that United sign another striker in the January window after Mason Greenwood was suspended.

| Ten Hag will target at least three key signings during the summer window with an acceptance that it is impossible to carry out all of the changes that are needed immediately.

| Ten Hag is believed to agree with Rangnick’s judgement that up to 10 new players could be needed and has identified a core of roughly eight players he feels he can build around.

| One view is that United do not possess a squad of bad players but a squad that has had a bad time, although there is no question there will be a significant number of departures and signings.

| The list of potential transfers is long, although United’s first priority will be to establish what has been described as “a plan of action” under Ten Hag and how they will operate.
