Marcus Rashford is poised to earn a significant pay-rise at Manchester United after his brilliant form in recent months, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Rashford is set for an increase in his weekly salary, which is currently believed to worth around £50,000 a week.

The same story says that although manager Jose Mourinho wants to keep Rashford’s feet on the ground, it is likely that the 19-year-old will be handed an increase in his basic salary in the coming months.

Rashford has been in fine form for Manchester United so far this season, scoring five goals in all competitions for Mourinho’s men.

The teenager has become one of England’s most promising young prospects since breaking into the first team at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal.

He will be hoping to feature when Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.

Manchester United head into that game in second place in the Premier League table and level on points with leaders Manchester City after an impressive start to the campaign.

The Red Devils were 4-0 winners over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford before the international break.
