Premier League: Marcus Rashford rebuts Manchester United’s contract demands

Marcus Rashford has scored 27 goals in all competitions this season for the club.

The Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has set the record straight on a report that claims he is seeking more than £500,000 per week from Old Trafford as a way to remain at the club. Rashford is out of contract with United in 2024 after the club triggered a one-year extension earlier this season.

United are keen to keep the striker, who has scored 27 goals in all competitions this season. Currently, negotiations are taking place between the club and the England international regarding an extended long-term deal. Apparently, Rashford is in the process of trying to convince his boyhood club Manchester United to offer him a new contract worth £500,000 a week.


As was suspected, the forward has swiftly denied that this is the case, posting on Twitter: “Just before this one goes around! I can’t believe it’s true. The club and make self have been respectful of one another, and that’s how it will remain. My focus is purely on finishing as well as possible in the league and winning trophies.”

Having turned 25 and entering a phase of his career in which he is entering his prime, Rashford will take time to assess his options before signing what is most likely to be his biggest deal to date.
