Manchester United Will Offer To Double Wages Of England Ace In Order To Ward Off Potential Suitors

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford will be offered an improved contract by the club, according to reports in England.

The 21-year-old’s current deal expires in 2020, although the Manchester club do have an option to extend his stay by a further year.

Still, United are keen to keep Rashford for the long-term with his stock rising with every passing month. The forward is currently on £75k a week, but United could look to double his salary to £150k.

Contract talks had reportedly begun at the back end of last season but negotiations stalled with the player not satisfied with the amount of game time under manager Jose Mourinho.

However, this campaign Rashford has started eight games out of a possible 14 and is now showing the type of form, for both club and country, that he demonstrated when he broke into the United side during the 2015/16 season.

In recent weeks, the striker has scored a last-gasp winner against Bournemouth, as well as scoring for England in the 3-2 win over Spain last month.
