Marcus Rashford signs bumper Manchester United contract

Marcus Rashford

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has signed a bumper new contract at Old Trafford. The Premier League outfit have agreed a long term deal with the young forward.

The young academy graduate has been making headlines ever since his debut in the Europa League earlier this season. The England striker has scored several important goals since then against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City. Rashford wreaked havoc against Arsenal as the Manchester United starlet scored twice and set up another for Herrera during his side’s 3-2 win over Wenger’s team.

Rashford also scored a vital goal for England on his debut against Australia earlier this week.

The talented Manchester United striker is currently earning around £1500 per week and will sign a new and improved contract which will see his wages rise to around £20,000-a-week but appearance bonuses and other performance triggers are likely to see the striker earn significantly more than that according to Telegraph.

Rashford signing a new deal is excellent news for Manchester United, who should be doing everything in their power to keep their prodigious young talents at the club. The Old Trafford outfit have lost world class talents like Ravel and Pogba previously.

Rashford has been a revelation under Louis Van Gaal and it will be interesting to see if Mourinho offers him a prominent role next season or send him out on loan. The last thing he needs is a manager who wants to sign world class stars and keep him on the bench.
