Marcus Rashford closes in on eye-watering €250,000 per week contract extension with Man United
Manchester United are making good progress in contract extension talks with Marcus Rashford.
The 21-year-old has established himself as an important player at Old Trafford since bursting onto the scene in a Europa League tie against FC Midtjylland in February 2016.
Rashford's current deal expires at the end of the 2019-20 season, although United would almost certainly take up the option to extend it by a further year.
However, the forward is close to signing a new and improved contract to stay at the club long-term, with a figure of €275,000 per week over five years being discussed.
It is understood that Barcelona were among the clubs eyeing a move for the England international, who has scored 45 goals in 170 appearances for his boyhood club.
Ander Herrera left on a free transfer this summer at the end of his contract, while captain Antonio Valencia was among those released at the end of their deals.
