According to the Daily Star, Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is set for contract talks that would see him triple his wages. The English international has two more years to run on his existing deal but could be in line for a lengthy extension as the Red Devils want to rebuff any interest in his signature.
Rashford rose through the youth ranks to the United first-team in 2016 and has gone on to make 119 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 48 goals. The 20-year-old has won one Europa League, one FA Cup and one League Cup during his time at United and has a bright future for club and country.
This season, Rashford has contributed 21 goals in 48 games in all competitions, helping United to second in the Premier League table and to the FA Cup final against Chelsea later this month. His form in the last two years has led to a lot of interest from European giants, but his boyhood club are desperate to keep him at Old Trafford as they believe he has the potential to be a great.
The report doesn’t set negotiations have begun yet, but chief executive Ed Woodward plans to get the ball rolling soon enough.
