Man Utd forward Marcus Rashford has been convinced to stay at the club after speaking to Daley Blind about the management of Erik ten Hag, according to a report on Metro UK.

Last season was Rashford’s worst season as a Manchester United player, with the forward  scoring just five times in 37 appearances in all competitions.

Rashford lost his place in the Man Utd starting XI and also the England squad as a result of his drop in form last season.

The 24 year old considered leaving Manchester United this summer but is now set to fight for his future at the club next season under Ten Hag.

Rashford reportedly spoke to Ajax star and former United team-mate Blind about his future and he’s now excited about the prospect of working with Ten Hag.

Blind informed Rashford about Ten Hag’s hands-on nature and that was music to the forward’s ears, as he’s keen to finally receive the type of targeted training that he feels he’s lacked in recent years.

Rashford feels he’s lacked guidance in recent years and believes that has stalled his progress since breaking into the first-team under Louis van Gaal.

Rashford reportedly hopes to play in his favoured left side of attack under Ten Hag.

Paul Merson has sent a warning to Rashford ahead of next season.

“Marcus Rashford needs to turn up this season for Manchester United,” Merson told the Daily Star.

“Everything has been plain sailing for him up until recently but his confidence has gone and it’s been hard for him.

“I’d like to think he’ll be back next season but if he can’t get his confidence back then you start worrying.

“All the work he did for good causes off the pitch probably took a toll on him mentally as well. But I’d expect him to bounce back.

“The new manager might suit him. I’m sure Erik ten Hag wants to play a certain way. He’ll want United to play like Ajax. To press and move the ball quickly.

“But it’s going to be hard for a team with Cristiano Ronaldo in it to be a high-intensity pressing team. He’s not going to be chasing down every ball is he?”
