After qualifying for next season’s Champions League, Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag has been eager to sign the England international to new terms.
Manchester United’s most recent news – Marcus Rashford
Manchester United are close to reaching an agreement with Rashford on a new long-term contract, according to The Guardian.
According to the source, talks between the Red Devils and their youth graduate’s representation are approaching completion, and he is poised to turn down interest from Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain after being delighted with his progress under ten Hag.
If Rashford signs a contract, he will move closer to Manchester United’s top earners, who make £375,000 per week.
Transfer insider Dean Jones previously told GIVEMESPORT that after the 25-year-old commits his long-term future to the club, the Red Devils should stick him on posters all over the city since it is a ‘huge deal’.
Manchester United has been desperate to strike an arrangement with Rashford, who is about to enter the final year of his contract, worth £200,000 per week, in a matter of days.
What did Fabrizio Romano have to say about Marcus Rashford?
Manchester United is expected to announce Rashford’s contract extension soon, according to Romano.
Before the winger signs on the dotted line, the respected Italian journalist understands that a few small things must be smoothed out.
“Manchester United have now been able to reach an agreement,” Romano told GIVEMESPORT on Wednesday afternoon.
“It’s 90% finished. We’re only waiting on the final details before signing and completing it.”
Will Rashford’s new deal provide a significant boost to Manchester United?
Rashford just had a fantastic season, with Transfermarkt statistics revealing he scored 30 goals and supplied 11 assists in 56 appearances.
It is reasonable to claim that ten Hag has helped the attacker find his finest form since he only contributed seven goals in the entire 2021/22 season.
Rashford maintained his excellent form earlier this week, with Sofascore statistics revealing that he executed four dribbles and won as many ground duels in England’s rout of North Macedonia.
Channel 4 analyst Joe Cole rated the wide-man’s performance as “outstanding,” and Manchester United fans will be hoping for more of the same next season.
Rashford has won five trophies during his time with the Red Devils, and retaining him will boost Ten Hag’s chances of bringing more silverware to Old Trafford.
