Today it was announced that Marcus Rashford had signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United. 

The young striker has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign this year, bagging eight goals in 18 appearances for the Red Devils, including the winner in the Manchester derby.

He also scored on his full Manchester United debut in Europe, and also shattered the record for youngest ever England scorer on his international debut against Australia last week.

Ahead of the European Championships in France, Manchester United have moved to tie the talented youngster down to a long-term deal that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2020.

It was previously reported that Rashford would be pocketing around £15,000-per-week with his new deal having previously just less than £1,000-per-week. 

Interestingly however, BBC Sport report today that the contract is in fact believed to be worth more than that - at around £20,000-per-week.

"I am grateful for having the chance to prove myself," Rashford said after his new contract was announced. "To be able to play football at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family."

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward added: "He is still very young and we need to be patient, but he is developing in the right way and we believe he has a great future ahead of him."

Fellow youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has also signed a new contract with the club, days after it was confirmed that Jose Mourinho would be the next Manchester United manager.

Will Rashford be Manchester United's starting striker next season?
