Marcus Rashford has agreed a new long-term contract with Manchester United that will see his weekly wage rocket to at least £20,000-a-week.

According to The Telegraph, the deal will be at least four years long and will include a number of performance-related bonuses that could see the 18-year-old earn significantly more than his basic salary.

Rashford's old contract saw him earn a reported £500-a-week and had just 12 months to run on it. But, of course, he has since become a household name, scoring his first senior international goal for England against Australia on Friday night.

As a result of his strike in that 2-1 victory, which came just 138 seconds into his debut, he is likely to be chosen in Roy Hodgson's final 23-man squad that travels to France for Euro 2016.

But Manchester United fans will be hoping to get him back fighting for the new campaign, where he is expected to carry on his impressively rapid development.


The club will be delighted to have secured the future of England's brightest starlet especially in a turbulent time that has seen Jose Mourinho replace Louis van Gaal as manager.

Rashford's future first-team involvement could change under the Special One, whose record in developing young and inexperienced players is far from impressive.

But the striker sees his future at Old Trafford and the deal is now said to be agreed. Manchester United hope to make an official announcement by June 10, when Euro 2016 gets underway.

Another deal

However, they will first try to finalise a contract for Rashford's team-mate Cameron Borthwick-Jackson. The defender was one of the main beneficiaries of Van Gaal's youth policy and impressed while deputising for the injured Luke Shaw.

Talks are at an advanced stage and all parties expect to come to an agreement soon.
