Rashford’s inconsistent season
Despite being just 21 years of age, Marcus Rashford has already earned an impressive 170 appearances for Manchester United’s senior side.
Rashford was promoted to the first-team in January of 2016 and has now scored 45 goals and assisted 26 for the Red Devils.
This past season was somewhat inconsistent for Rashford.
He started the season pretty slowly, scoring just once in his first seven league outings.
However, when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first took charge at Old Trafford, Rashford enjoyed an upshot in form.
In Solskjaer’s first six league games as interim boss, Rashford would score five and assist two.
But the Englishman’s form would once again dip off towards the back end of the season.
Rashford managed to net just one in his last 11 PL outings.
Rashford set for new deal
Despite his inconsistent form, Rashford looks set to be rewarded with a bumper new contract.
Rashford’s current United deal runs out in July of 2020 with Man United reportedly having an option to extend it by a year.
Now, according to ESPN, Rashford is set to be handed a new contract that would see him earn a whopping £200,000-per-week.
The new contract is said to last for five years.
The same report from ESPN also mentions that Jese Lingard has been pencilled in for United’s next round of contract talks.
Lingard’s current deal runs until July 2021.
