According to news from the Daily Star, Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is in line for a lucrative new deal at Manchester United.
The English forward will sign an extension in the new year according to the UK paper, which will bolster his £ 200,000-a-week salary, having impressed Manchester United so far in 2020-21.
The report reads: “The England superstar’s current deal runs until 2023 and has the option of an extra 12 months.”
“But his rapid progress to becoming one of the best players in the world has made United bosses bring forward their plans to secure Rashford’s long-term future at Old Trafford.”
It is understood that in the next two months, Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward will begin talks with Rashford and his representatives.
Woodward is keen to propose a new five-year contract worth about £ 300,000 a week to the 23-year-old, which represents his rising status and team power.
The United chief wants to stick him down to a new deal before next season’s Euros, when the striker will be one of the major attractions and it could enhance his reputation even further.
After plundering 12 goals for United this season, Rashford is in the peak condition of his career – and his heroics have attracted the attention of top clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris St Germain.
