Manchester United on verge of reaching agreement with Marcus Rashford over long-term deal

Manchester United are on the verge of reaching an agreement with Marcus Rashford over a new long-term deal, reports Sky Sport Italy journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The England international attacker is in the last 12 months of his current contract at Old Trafford.

Both parties have been in talks for a while and Rashford is set to accept the proposal.

The 25-year-old is very happy with Man United manager Erik ten Hag, with negotiations at the final stages and final details set to be sorted.

The Red Devils ace was in fine form in 2022-23, bagging 30 goals and eight assists across all competitions.

Rashford has been the club’s most important player in recent months and keeping him is integral to Ten Hag’s plans.

Other clubs are keeping tabs on the situation, but Man United have moved quickly to sort out his future.

The Man United’s Players’ Player of the Year deserves to be their highest earner and the update from Romano will leave fans excited.

Uncertainty over the club’s ownership has already cast doubt over their summer transfer plans.

Getting their most important stars to sign new deals appeared to be dependent on a takeover.

However, that is not the case, and an official statement confirming a new deal for Rashford should be expected anytime soon.

The Man United academy graduate has been a key player for the Red Devils since making his debut in February 2016.

He has notched 123 goals in 359 appearances for the club and is slowly establishing himself as a club icon.
