Marcus Rashford is reportedly close to signing a new long-term contract at Manchester United.
The Englishman will enter the final year of his current £250,000-a-week deal next week. But according to Sportsmail, he could be tied to a new deal before then.
According to reports by the UK-based newspaper, Rashford and Man United are close to an agreement following extensive talks. The 25-year-old’s representatives have been locked in negotiations for some time, and the new deal is expected to take him closer to the club’s highest earners, who are on £ 375,000 a week.
Rashford was subject to strong interest from Paris Saint-Germain last season. His brother Dwaine Maynard even met with the French club. However, the feeling has always been that the English international would prefer to remain at Man United, with whom he had been with since the age of seven.
Rashford was one of United’s best performers last season, scoring 30 goals in what was his best season in a United shirt.
“Marcus is proud to call Manchester home, so he sees representing the national team at Old Trafford as one of the highest honours there could be,” a source told Sportsmail.
“Marcus has had a great time training with the squad at St George’s Park this past week and bringing the national team to his home training ground at Carrington. He is buzzing to walk out at Old Trafford.”
