Erik ten Hag has identified his fantasy forward duo as he approaches his second campaign at the helm of Manchester United. However, the fruition of this aspiration may hinge on Marcus Rashford’s Old Trafford destiny, with Paris Saint-Germain lingering in the wings, eager for the 2024 contract expiration.

Football’s grapevine is abuzz with the poorly concealed secret: Ten Hag is determined to bolster his ranks with a seasoned goal-scorer come summer.

Rumour has it, Harry Kane tops his wish list as the Tottenham Hotspur talisman edges towards the final year of his contract.

As The Telegraph divulges, procuring Kane could set the Red Devils back by an estimated £100 million, despite his 29 years and the uncertain contract predicament.

Nonetheless, United persist in their pursuit of Kane, which would see him join forces with England compatriot Rashford.

The 25-year-old, appraised at £70 million on transfermarkt, could emulate Son Heung-min in a partnership so brimming with potential, it’s little wonder Ten Hag regards it as a dream scenario.

The report suggests that United are steadily making headway in securing Rashford’s future at Old Trafford.

The young forward’s stock has soared this season, amassing an impressive 29 goals under Ten Hag in what is his most prolific campaign to date.

Rashford further augmented his tally with a trio of goals for England at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and the negotiations concerning his long-term commitment to United are purportedly progressing favourably.

Nevertheless, PSG are amongst a handful of clubs keeping a watchful eye on Rashford’s situation, with the prospect of a free transfer at the close of the forthcoming season.

Ten Hag, unsurprisingly, deems his number 10 indispensable to his future blueprint in M16 and envisions Kane as his ideal partner for the upcoming term.

United have recently announced new contracts for both Luke Shaw and Alejandro Garnacho.

Furthermore, discussions are underway with Diogo Dalot and David de Gea regarding contract extensions, with the latter’s deal expiring in July.

Fred finds himself alongside Rashford and Dalot with contracts ending in 2024, but his future remains uncertain as he has fallen out of favour under Ten Hag’s tutelage.
