Marcus Rashford set to sign new five-year contract with Manchester United

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Marcus Rashford is set to sign a new five-year contract with Manchester United.

Having been in discussions for several months, the 25-year-old has now reached an agreement in principle to commit his long term future at Old Trafford until 2028z

The forward is believed to have turned down ‘more lucrative offers’ from both English and European clubs, partly due to his ambition to win major honors with his Boyhood side, where he has scored 123 times in 359 games since making his debut in 2016.

With his current contract set to expire in June 2024 and a market value of €80m, according to Transfermarkt, keeping the England international will be of significant importance for Erik ten Hag’s side going in to next season, with his 30 goals in 56 appearances in all competitions last year more than any other player in the club.

Furthermore, with the signing of Mason Mount from Premier League rivals Chelsea and the expected arrival of Inter Milan Goalkeeper Andrè Onana helping to bolster the squads quality, The Red Devils will hope Rashford can continue last seasons form as they look to build upon last seasons third place finish and compete in Champions League football next year.
