Man United closing in on £1.3m deal for one of Europe’s most exciting starlets

Marcus Rashford is nearing an agreement with Manchester United over a £1.3m contract with the club, report the Daily Mail.

The 18-year old striker was handed his debut by Louis van Gaal back in February and proved to be one of the most exciting young talents in the country.

He’s scored seven goals since then, including a brace over Arsenal and a crucial winner in the crunch Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium.

His prolific form in front of goal in a short space of time even prompted suggestions he could be in line for a shock space in the Euro 2016 squad.

As a result, the talented teen is set to receive a bumper new deal at Old Trafford following his emergence as a first-team regular with the club.

He has now reportedly formally appointed his brother, Dwaine, to handle his business affairs after months of being chased by a number of top agents.

Now, he could see a meteoric pay rise and fresh terms with the Red Devils, seeing his pay sky rocket from £1,500 a week to £25,000.
