United want to tie Rashford down to new United deal

Manchester United are trying to tie down England forward Marcus Rashford to a new long-term deal at the club – and are prepared to more than double his current money to do it.

The 21-year old is out of contract at the end of 2020 season, although there is an option in his contract that allows the club to extend it by a further year, but United are now ready to offer him a lucrative new deal to tie down his long-term future, amidst interest from a number of Europe’s top clubs, including Real Madrid.

That means, according to The Telegraph, a contract that will see his weekly wage more than double to £150,000, once bonuses are taken in to account. If Rashford does sign, he will follow in the footsteps of his colleague and team mate Anthony Martial who, after months of speculation, agreed  new five year contract with the Old Trafford side last week.

Rashford is one of the players who has blossomed since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came to the club, scoring six goals in his last ten matches, including the winner against Leicester on Sunday.
