Manchester United ready to agree terms with 42-goal striker – Sky Sports

Manchester United are reportedly keen on sorting out the future of Marcus Rashford at the club following his promising form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in recent months.

The England international had struggled to cement a regular starting role under former boss Jose Mourinho, who had regularly gone with Romelu Lukaku to lead the line.

However, the same has not been the case since the Portuguese’s sacking with interim boss Ole preferring to start the youngster upfront which has richly paid dividends.

According to Sky Sports News, the Mancunian giants are keen to sort out the striker’s long-term future with his existing deal due to expire at the end of next season.

United do have the option of prolonging the contract further by means of a 12-month extension clause but they are eager to reward him with a long-term deal with a wage hike.

Rashford, alongside, Paul Pogba have been the leading performers since Ole took over the reigns and he has contributed six goals from the past eight league matches. Overall, he has netted 42 times for United to date.
