Marcus Rashford is set to put pen to paper on a new Manchester United contract, committing his long-term future to the club.

Marcus Rashford, currently 25 years of age, will sign a new five-year contract with Manchester United, extending his stay until 2028.

Rashford’s current contract ends in 2024, however, after establishing himself as a core cog of Erik ten Hag‘s rebuild, the club have deemed it necessary to keep the player on.

According to David Ornstein, Rashford’s representatives are in the “final stages” of negotiations with the club, with all indications pointing towards a new contract being signed.

It is said that Rashford received more lucrative offers from both abroad and in England, but wants to stay at United to fulfil his dream of winning major honours at Old Trafford.

Manchester United want to continue Rashford’s path at the club as he has become the embodiment of Manchester United’s footballing legacy, and his success at the club is pivotal on the club maintaining that.

The English international has become a modern club icon in recent seasons, championing the mantra of United’s world-famous academy – and his continuation as one of the best players at the club helps to further cement that legacy.

He currently has 123 goals for the club across all competitions and sits 18th on United’s all-time top scorers’ list, and will no doubt be breaking into the top five across the course of his next contract, should he stay at the club and keep fit.

Rashford has already won three major trophies at United in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Europa League – and further to this, he scored in the recent 2023 Carabao Cup victory over Newcastle United in February.

Rashford has dreams of winning the Premier League and Champions League at Old Trafford and being a player who is meant to be hitting his peak years across the next five seasons, he has the perfect opportunity to do so.

Ten Hag’s first season ended in overall success, winning one trophy, finishing third in the domestic league, and reaching an FA Cup final, and with new signings this summer only further improving the squad, much can be expected from the team and Marcus Rashford in the coming seasons.
