Marcus Rashford in talks over new five-year deal but Man Utd won’t go beyond £300,000-a-week

Manchester United are prepared to finalise a new long-term contract for Marcus Rashford, provided he accepts a basic salary of £300,000-a-week, The Sun report.

The England international has been in superb form for the Red Devils this campaign, registering 16 goals and a further six assists from 26 appearances in all competitions.

United boss Erik ten Hag recently described him as ‘unstoppable‘ after his match winner in the derby and talks are now underway with him over a fresh long-term deal.

Rashford currently earns £200,000-a-week until June 2024. United are ready to prolong his stay if he accepts a 50 per cent pay rise on his salary with incentives on top of that.

The club are quite clear that they won’t break their wage structure for the 25-year-old.

They want to keep the top earners in their squad within the £200,000 to £300,000-a-week bracket and have asked De Gea to accept a 27 per cent pay-cut on his £375,000 weekly wages.

United must keep hold of Rashford at any cost

Rashford has been tremendous for United this season. He has been hugely influential in the Premier League where United are in a healthy position to finish in the top four at the moment.

Ten Hag is obviously a big admirer of the club graduate and it is a no-brainer to reward him with an improved deal. There are no surprises that they are prioritising his contract over others.

Rashford may want a huge pay rise in the prime of his career. United should find an alternative solution to convince him, suppose he is reluctant to accept the contract offer on the table.

They could add significant bonuses for every goal contribution while also agreeing on huge signing-on and loyalty fees. In our view, United must keep Rashford at any cost next term.

Paris Saint-Germain are hot on the trail of him. They spoke with his brother privately last year. The Ligue 1 giants could make a serious approach this summer if Rashford does not renew.
