Manchester United have opened negotiations with Marcus Rashford in a bid to tie him to a long term contract.
The youngster has hogged all the limelight with his brilliant form off late and has been the focal point of Manchester United’s recent revival. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has preferred him in the central role over Romelu Lukaku and results have been pretty encouraging so far.
Rashford’s progress hasn’t gone unnoticed and a number of clubs including Real Madrid are monitoring his development. The forward is regarded as one of the hottest prospects and is being seen as the future of the Red Devils setup.
Rashford’s contract is set to expire at the end of the next season and although the club has the option of an extra one year the player is likely to be rewarded for his prolific form. A substantial wage hike is also in the offing and the 21 year old could take home around £150,000 a week should he sign on the dotted line.
Anthony Martial’s recent contract extension could pave the way for a number of new deals as the likes of Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and David De Gea are also in the line to receive new offers.
