Man Utd set to announce bumper £300,000 per-week deal for Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford has agreed a new four year contract to stay at Manchester United.

The Telegraph report that the Reds could announce the new deal as early as Monday, which will commit the 21-year-old to the club until 2023.

Rashford’s contract has the option of the extension of a further year.

The report states that the England international could earn up to £300,000 per-week with performance related bonuses, earning similar amounts to top earners Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.

Rashford is set to join up with teammates later this week before the squad fly out to Australia on July 8th.

There are obvious concerns about the huge wages offered to Rashford on the back of an inconsistent season in a red shirt. Rashford’s form dipped towards the end of last campaign and many feel it would be good to see a striker brought into the club to provide some much-needed competition for the Englishman given rumours of Romelu Lukaku’s exit.

However, Rashford represents United’s future and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clearly has faith in the striker who still has huge potential to develop his game. Next season is huge for Rashford who must prove that he is capable of leading the line for the Reds.
