Manchester United looking to tie key man down to five-year deal

Manchester United want to tie Marcus Rashford down to a new contract, it has been reported.

Marcus Rashford had a rough 2021/22 campaign with Manchester United, that was marred by injury, poor form and managerial change.

In 32 games for the Red Devils last season, he scored just five goals and provide two assists.

This poor form also saw him fall out of favour with the England set-up.

During the beginning of 2022/23 though, Rashford has looked a much better player under Erik ten Hag.

With Anthony Martial injured and Cristiano Ronaldo out in the cold following his attempt to leave Manchester United in the summer, Ten Hag has looked to Rashford to fill the void up top in the Premier League.

He has so far featured six times for United this season, scoring three goals and two assists, meaning he is just two goals off matching his goal contribution tally from the entirety of last season.

It was also expected that Rashford would have returned to the England squad this month, but he recently picked up an issue that could cause him to also miss the upcoming Manchester derby.

Now, after a bright start to the new campaign, the Express are reporting that United want to tie Rashford down to fresh terms.

They report that Manchester United will trigger a 12-month option on Marcus Rashford’s contract before Christmas if they fail to agree a new five-year deal with the England striker.

It is added that there is concern at Old Trafford about Rashford’s future, as he’s out of contract at the end of the season, meaning he could sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January if an extension is not triggered.
