Marcus Rashford has officially signed a new and improved contract at Manchester United that will keep him at the club until June 2028.

The Reds have been in talks with the forward for several months and the contract has finally been signed.

Rashford scored 30 goals for United last term and became the first player at Old Trafford to hit the tally since Robin van Persie in 2012/13. His six goals in the Carabao Cup, including one in the final, helped the side win their first piece of silverware since 2017.

Erik ten Hag helped turn the England international’s career around after a disappointing 2021/22 campaign. His trust in Rashford paid dividends as he has returned to being one of the most dangerous attackers in the Premier League.

The attacking player will earn 325,000-per-week on his new deal, according to The Times, which represents his important role in Ten Hag’s side.

Speaking on the new contract, Rashford said: “I joined Manchester United as a seven-year-old boy with a dream. That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed still drives me every time I have the honour of wearing the shirt.

“I’ve already had some amazing experiences at this incredible club, but there is still a lot more to achieve and I remain relentlessly determined to win more trophies in the years ahead.

“As a United fan all my life, I know the responsibility that comes with representing this badge and feel the highs and lows as much as anyone. I can assure you that I will give everything to help the team reach the level we are capable of, and I can feel the same determination around the dressing room. I couldn’t be more excited for the future under this manager.”

Rashford returning to Carrington on Saturday following an extended break after playing international fixtures last month.

He was not included in the 24-man squad to face Lyon in Edinburgh on Wednesday but will be heading with the squad to the United States to prepare for the upcoming season.
