After England was eliminated from the World Cup, Erik ten Hag of Manchester United compared Marcus Rashford to Kylian Mbappe of France.
Even though England was eliminated from the World Cup in the quarterfinals by France with a score of 2-1, there are plenty reasons to be pleased with their performance. Rashford should be especially delighted with his achievements in Qatar, as he concluded the tournament with three goals.
The manager of the winger’s team appears to have recently been impressed with him and has since paid him a high compliment.
Ten Hag commented, “I recognized enormous potential immediately. To conclude, to emphasize Marcus’s potential, I believe that, when he is positioned in the back of the defensive line, there is practically no better player in the world.
“Currently, Mbappe is a type similar to him. However, when Rashford is in that position, he excels, and his improvement both in and out of possession is evident.
In a horrible twist of fate, Rashford may be paired with Mbappe in the near future. When his contract expires in the summer, he has been linked to a transfer to PSG. The CEO of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, recently remarked, “He’s another excellent player, and he’s free? If Rashford is available for free, every team will compete to sign him.
Even though he scored twice against Wales in England’s last group encounter, Rashford only played an additional 41 minutes of football during the next two replacement appearances.
Given the acclaim, Ten Hag will likely be optimistic that his star winger will sign a new contract at Old Trafford, but it is uncertain whether this will actually occur.
Red Devils could be required to pᴜrchase. Martin Dubravka
According to Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth, Manchester United’s option to buy Martin Dubravka becomes a requirement based on the number of times he plays for the club.
According to the news source, Erik ten Hag is looking to acquire new goalkeepers and is negotiating a contract with Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer. Currently, Sommer plays for Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Slovakian goalkeeper is expected to return to Newcastle United after his season-long loan from Manchester United expires in the summer, according to ESPN. The purpose of the loan was to play for Manchester United.
According to sources, Dubravka inked a loan contract with the Eagles for £2 million from the Magpies, with the Eagles having the option to make the transaction permanent for a further £6 million.
Sheth disclosed to GiveMeSport that Manchester United’s option to pᴜrchase Dubravka becomes binding dependent on the number of appearances he makes, and if he does not reach that number, he will be permitted to return to St. James’ Park. Sheth disclosed this information while speaking with GiveMeSport.
United have obtained Dubravka on loan and have the option to buy him in the summer, according to the journalist.
According to what I’ve been told, the amount of times he makes an appearance determines whether this option becomes mandatory.
If he fails to reach that amount of appearances, he will return to Newcastle United, and Manchester United will look for a new goalkeeper.
Due to the fɑct that Dubravka has only been in one game for United this season, and none of them have been in the Premier League, it appears quite unlikely that he will remain a regular at Old Trafford.
In the event that he returns to Tyneside, Manchester United will need to sign another goalkeeper to serve as David de Gea’s backup and eventually challenge the Spaniard for the number one position if they wish to maintain their league-leading status.
However, Dubravka has not been given many opportunities to prove himself at United, so Ten Hag should consider playing him more frequently in order to ascertain definitively whether he is worth signing permanently.
