Manchester United may be forced to pay Marcus Rashford as much as £350,000 a week to keep him at the club, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Red Devils bosses may have to splash the cash to get Rashford to commit his future to the club and fend off interest from the likes of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

The same story says that the 21-year-old England international is currently in talks with Manchester United about extending his deal as he enters the final 12 months of his contract at the club.

Rashford, according to the article, is “keen” to stay at Old Trafford after having established himself as the main man up front under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But the striker is said to be playing “hardball” over his future because of the huge wages being paid to Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford.

And the report says that Rashford’s position has been made stronger because of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona’s apparent interest in signing the England international.

Manchester United will be hoping for Rashford to commit his long-term future to the club as they look to bounce back from two trophyless seasons.
