Manchester United fans are not happy with reports that Marcus Rashford could be paid £350,000-a-week to stay at Old Trafford.
The Sun reported over the weekend that the striker is negotiating with the Red Devils as he enters the final year of his contract.
The paper reckon he is holding out for a four-year deal at that £350k weekly wage, in part because the signature of Alexis Sanchez has warped United’s wage structure.
Could United be in the hunt for an £85m blockbuster signing this summer? Check out the video below…
With interest from Spanish giants like Real Madrid and Barcelona in the background too, the club could have to relent in order to keep his services.
It’s an extraordinary sum, especially when you consider that his scoring record at United isn’t particularly strong since making the breakthrough into the first-team as a teenager.
Last term he scored ten Premier League goals, the first time he has reached double figures in a single season in the competition.
It’s fair to say that supporters aren’t exactly thrilled to hear of his demands, with plenty feeling he should be let go rather than retained at that price.
These fans have taken to Twitter over the weekend to share their thoughts…
Let him go

rather loan list him than give him 350k a week ? he’s not world class nor a consistent player to getting over 200k a week

If he’s asking for that, pay him that…. to leave the club.

On another subject, as much as I like Rashford, if it’s true he wants £350K a week to stay, my view let him go. It’s a ludicrous sum for a 21yo, who was below average for most of the second half of the season. De Gea on the other hand deserves his salary increase.
