Key Man United man on brink of signing new contract – report
Marcus Rashford is on the brink of signing a new contract at Manchester United, say reports
Manchester United are on the brink of tying Marcus Rashford down to a new contract, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Telegraph, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are keen to tie the 21-year-old striker to a new deal and he is close to committing his future to the Old Trafford outfit.
According to the same story, Manchester United are hoping to announce the news of Rashford’s new deal before they embark on their pre-season tour to Australia on 8 July.
The article says that Rashford’s new deal will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2023, and will make him one of the “top earners” at the club behind Alexis Sanchez.
The England international scored 10 goals and made six assists in 33 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils last season as they ended up in sixth place in the Premier League table.
The Red Devils will be aiming to bounce back from a disappointing campaign next season as they look to break back into the top four at the very least.
They completed their second signing of the summer on Saturday after tying up a deal to land Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.
