Manchester United: Marcus Rashford to be offered new deal

Manchester United: Marcus Rashford to be offered new deal -Manchester United News

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will be offered a new contract at Old Trafford, according to an update from journalist Fabrizio Romano.

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.

Rashford has scored seven times in the Premier League and Europa League combined in 2022/23 to date, also netting in England’s 6-2 win over Iran at the 2022 World Cup on Monday.

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?

Writing on Substack [via Caught Offside], Romano claimed that the Red Devils would offer Rashford a new contract, with Erik ten Hag considering the forward an ‘important player’.

“Manchester United will offer Marcus Rashford a new deal, itโ€™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.

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

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.
