New Deal Worth £200,000 A Week
Manchester United are ready to offer Marcus Rashford a contract that will keep him at Old Trafford until the middle of the next decade. It follows what is being described as a “breakthrough” in talks.
Rashford has become an automatic choice for United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having been more of a bit-part player under Jose Mourinho. He has scored ten goals so far this season and is closing in on what will be his best campaign in the United first team. Six of those goals have come since Solskjaer’s appointment as interim manager just before Christmas.
Rashford has already indicated that he is ready to sign a new deal with United. But the Daily Mirror claims claims there has been a breakthrough in discussions between Rashford’s representatives and Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. It suggests the England international is now ready to sign a new six-year deal with United that will keep him at the club until 2025.
The contract would see Rashford become one of the highest-paid players at Old Trafford. That would suggest wages in the region of £200,000 a week. He currently earns £70,000 a week.
Rashford’s current deal runs to 2021 which suggests there wouldn’t be any rush by either party. But Woodward expects to make an official announcement in the coming weeks.
