The Lowdown: Rashford back in form
The 25-year-old has looked much more like his old self again this season, having dipped way below those standards for a sustained period.
The Englishman’s current United deal runs out at the end of this season but it looks as though his stay at the club could be extended.
The Latest: New deal incoming?
“Manchester United will offer Marcus Rashford a new deal, it’s part of their plans.
“Even though his current contract expires in 2023, nothing is expected to end next summer as Man Utd have the option of a clause to extend his contract for one more year.
“Erik ten Hag considers Rashford as really important player for the present and future.”
The Verdict: Still a big role to play
There was a point when Rashford arguably looked like his long-term future at United was in doubt, but his form this season suggests he still has a key role to play.
While that doesn’t necessarily mean he is a guaranteed starter in Ten Hag’s strong starting lineup, he possesses the pace and end product to be a handy figure in the squad, having been called ‘brilliant’ by Dion Dublin.
At 25, he is still a relatively young player, too, so selling him at this point in his career would feel like a risk, considering he still has so many years ahead of him.
