Manchester United are ‘ready’ to finalise a new contract with Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford under Erik Ten Hag, journalist Rudy Galetti has informed GIVEMESPORT.
The 25-year-old has been a star man for the Red Devils this season, putting in some exceptional performances, which have been a crucial part of their recent positive form.
Man Utd Contract News – Marcus Rashford
Last month, The Sun reported that Manchester United were in talks over a new five-year contract for Rashford, which would see him in the region of £300,000 per week.
Nevertheless, it is said that the Red Devils will not break the bank to renew his terms as they try to move away from the days of offering players like Alexis Sanchez and Cristiano Ronaldo eyewatering sums of money to keep them at the club.
Manchester United see keeping Rashford as a ‘priority’, though no developments have transpired since in the process of negotiations.
In December, Rashford, alongside Fred, Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot, had 12-month extension clauses in their deals activated to safeguard them from being available on a free transfer at the end of this campaign.
The England international currently earns £225,000 per week on the books at Old Trafford on a contract that runs until the summer of 2024, as per Salary Sport.
What has Rudy Galetti said about Marcus Rashford?
Now, Galetti believes that Manchester United are ‘ready’ to get an extension over the line for Rashford now that the transfer window has closed.
Galetti informed GMS: “There is no hurry because Rashford has just extended his contract for one more year, but now that the winter transfer window is closed, they are ready to finalize a new agreement and I think there will be no surprise.”
What are Marcus Rashford’s stats this season?
Rashford has been in fine form this term, netting 18 goals and laying on a further eight assists from 31 matches in all competitions, as per Transfermarkt.
The 25-year-old has rediscovered his mojo and confidence in front of the target, causing considerable problems to opposition backlines. WhoScored show that Rashford has had an average of 2.6 shots per match for Manchester United this campaign.
Ten Hag will want to keep Rashford at Old Trafford for the long term and will surely be driving negotiations behind the scenes to secure his services.
All focus for the Red Devils will be on looking forward to their season run-in, where they are in contention for silverware and a top-four finish.
