Man United lining up new deal for emerging star

Manchester United are planning to sit down with teenage sensation Marcus Rashford to thrash out a new contract, according to reports from Football Insider.

The 18-year-old has been dominating headlines over the course of the past few days after netting three goals in two appearances.

Rashford was handed a shock debut in the Europa League on Thursday when Anthony Martial limped out of the warm-up and seized his chance with a vital goal against the Danes in a big win at Old Trafford.

He then retained his place in Louis van Gaal’s starting XI for the visit of Arsenal on Sunday, netting twice against the title-chasing Gunners.

And to cap this monumental rise, United are reportedly keen to sit down with the starlet to discuss a new contract.

It’s understood that Rashford currently pockets £500-per-week, plus bonuses, but it’s likely that he’ll receive a hefty boost in earnings and a shot at carving out a first-team future at the Theatre of Dreams.

With Martial, Wayne Rooney and Will Keane all out injured, the youngster is LVG’s only current striking option.
