Man Utd make Marcus Rashford contract decision amid Barcelona and Real Madrid interest

Manchester United look set to trigger their 12-month extension option on the contract of striker Marcus Rashford.

The Sun reports that Rashford has stalled on a new deal in recent weeks holding out for higher wages.

The report states that the structure and terms of the deal are currently proving stumbling blocks from a new deal being agreed.

Rashford, 21, currently earns £180,000 per-week on his current deal which runs out at the end of next season but is said to be demanding almost double that to sign fresh terms.

United have chosen to trigger this extension to warn off potential suitors Real Madrid and Barcelona who both hold an interest in the England international.

It is clear from the way Rashford was treated last year that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees the youngster as a key part of his plans.

Rashford has played most of the Norwegian’s games in charge in the striker role, relegating Romelu Lukaku to the bench.

We hope the youngster, who still has huge potential despite struggling for form towards the end of last season, will be keen to sign a new deal at the club he has grown up supporting since he was a boy.
