Man Utd: £200k-per-week star ‘always likely’ to sign deal at Old Trafford

Posted by

Marcus Rashford, a forward for Manchester United, has always been more likely to agree to a new deal and commit to playing there in the long run.

Despite Paris Saint-interest Germain’s in Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford, CBS reporter Ben Jacobs told GiveMeSport that Rashford has always been more likely to extend his contract at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils star’s current £200,000 per week deal with Erik ten Hag’s group has fewer than 18 months left in it.

Marcus Rashford’s contract status at Man United.
Rashford is reportedly carrying a £120 million price tag from Manchester United as he approaches the end of his contract with the Premier League powerhouses, according to the Daily Star.

According to the same report, the 25-year-old is still being pursued by both PSG and Real Madrid ahead of a potential summer transfer despite his eagerness to extend his time at Old Trafford.

Rashford won’t sign a new deal that matches his current £200,000 weekly income, according to journalist Dean Jones, who recently told GiveMeSport, suggesting that ten Hag may have to be willing to stray from his original wage cap strategy.

Yet despite rumors of interest from the Ligue 1 team, according to Jacobs, the attacker was always more likely to remain in Manchester than transfer there last summer.

What has Jacobs stated on Rashford and Man Utd?
PSG believed that when they spoke to Rashford, games were being played, and they were being used as leverage to try to get him better terms at Manchester United, Jacobs said in an interview with GiveMeSport.

“Maybe this shows that Rashford and Manchester United were always more likely to negotiate a deal. We are currently waiting to see if it happens over the upcoming weeks and months.

Despite direct conversations taking place between Rashford and PSG last summer, “PSG never truly felt like they had that genuine possibility to capture Rashford.”

How crucial has Rashford been for Manchester United this year?
Rashford, who is now the team’s leading scorer across all competitions, has had a fantastic season at United and was a key component of ten Hag’s first triumph at Old Trafford.

The 51-cap England international contributed significantly to the Red Devils’ Carabao Cup victory last weekend. In his six games in the tournament, he scored six goals and assisted twice, indicating that he has the potential to be a consistent striker in English football.

The 5 foot 11 player, who has four goals in Europe’s second-tier continental tournament, will also be aiming to assist United win their first Europa League crown since 2017 when they take on Real Betis in the first leg of their last-16 matchup on Thursday.

In order to stave off possible bidders from across Europe this summer, the United management must now see it as a matter of urgency to tie Rashford down to a new long-term contract in Manchester.
