Manchester United close to finalising a new contract for Marcus Rashford

According to the daily briefing by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are on the verge of agreeing on a new contract with Marcus Rashford.

The 25-year-old forward’s current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2024, but the club has successfully persuaded him to commit to a new long-term deal.

Rashford, who has been playing for United since his early years, has risen through the ranks to become a key figure in their attacking line. Joining the first team in 2016, the 25-year-old has consistently displayed his potential and leadership qualities.

However, the past season proved to be challenging for Rashford as injuries hindered his performance and prevented him from hitting his stride. Despite the setbacks, the English international showcased resilience and made a strong comeback.

Rashford displayed his prowess in front of goal during the 2022/23 season, scoring 30 times in 56 appearances across all competitions. Additionally, he provided 11 assists, showcasing his ability to contribute to the team’s attack.
