Man United star to agree lengthy new contract after impressive form

Manchester United have found a breakthrough in their bid to keep the commitment of promising forward Marcus Rashford.

The young goal-scorer was a member of the England national squad which went to the 2018 World Cup and nearly won the tournament after reaching the semi-finals.

The Mirror have reported that the 21-year-old is set to agree a new contract with Manchester United after the club’s success in convincing him to stay put at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils’ executive chairman Ed Woodward is indeed confident of confirming the striker’s new deal within the next few weeks.

Rashford, along with Paul Pogba, has been in inspired form this season, particularly after the departure of Jose Mourinho right before the winter.

Following positive discussions with United, Rashford will be putting pen to paper on a deal which will see him commit himself to the club for the next six years.

The young striker was introduced into the first team under former United boss Louis van Gaal nearly four years ago.
