Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford will be offered a new ‘bumper’ deal in 2021 to assist Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the continued rebuilding of the club.
The 23-year-old has 12 goals in 20 appearances in all competitions this season, the last two in a winning performance during United’s 3-2 win over Sheffield United on Thursday night.
Rashford’s current deal of £ 200,000 a week runs through 2023 with the option of an additional year, but depending on the Mirror, the Red Devils are ready to offer you a new long-term ‘lucrative’ contract in the new year.
The substantial size of the deal will reflect Rashford’s status as one of the most important members of the Solskjaer team, with United eager to make sure all of its key players are tied to long-term contracts at Old Trafford.
United’s academy product burst onto the scene when he was 18 in 2016, scoring a double on his Europa League debut against FC Midtjylland, a late addition to the lineup.
Since then, he has established himself as a United regular, scoring 79 goals in 234 appearances for his childhood club.
Rashford’s progress and performances for United this season are said to have “caught the eye” of the European soccer elite, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG.
With Euro 2020 nearing the end of the season, the Red Devils are eager to get the forward to commit his future to the club, as a strong showing at next summer’s big tournament could spark even greater interest from a selection of the best teams in Europe.
The equally influential Bruno Fernandes, who only joined United in January 2020, is also waiting for better terms to be offered.
Fernandes put pen to paper on a deal until 2025 when he moved from Sporting Lisbon to Old Trafford less than 12 months ago, with the option of one more year.
