Manchester United are ready to tie down Marcus Rashford to a new long-term contract as the player’s current contract runs out the next summer.
As per Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United will offer Marcus Rashford fresh terms to fend off interest from suitors. Rashford came up with the goods in England’s recent World Cup encounter with Wales, as his two brilliantly-taken goals subdued the Dragons.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s inconsistent time in the Manchester United starting lineup helped Rashford to gain his form to some extent. The Manchester United academy product should always be thankful to Louis van Gaal for unleashing him into the senior setup. And since then, it has been a fun ride for the 25-year-old.
He will have huge boots to fill, and the arrival of Erik ten Hag could not have come at a better time. The Manchester United manager has worked on his technicalities, and the progress is pretty eye-catching as he has stepped up to be Manchester United’s main source of goals this season.
He has carried that form into the international stage and has already scored three goals in three matches for England. Rashford’s recent form would definitely catch the eye of a number of clubs, and the Manchester United management will be flooded with offers as he is about to enter the final six months of his contract. Recent reports have linked Rashford with Atletico Madrid.

The Red Devils do have the option of triggering a one-year extension. But Manchester United will not take that easy route as they are eager to offer him a brand new deal to reward his effort on the pitch. Rashford’s current paycheck exceeds £200,000 per week. And he will be expected to get a hefty pay rise, as Ronaldo’s surprising departure has freed a lot of wages for Manchester United.
With ten Hag searching for a potential replacement for the Portuguese superstar, Rashford’s Ronaldo-esque free-kick could remind him of having a tailor-made successor at his disposal. And they are set to offer the 25-year-old forward a new long-term contract.
His inconsistency has been a problem, but he has grabbed his opportunities with both hands. And if Manchester United are planning to have a real showdown after the Word Cup, Rashford could be their star man. Recent reports have claimed that they are confident of tying the 25-year-old forward to a new contract.
