Manchester United close to agreeing terms over £250,000 a week contract with 45-goal striker

Manchester United are reportedly close to rewarding striker Marcus Rashford with a new bumper contract to commit his long-term future to the club.

The England international has been in a contract standoff with the Red Devils over the past year and that has brought up concerns, given he has just two years remaining on his deal with the 12-month option included.

According to The Telegraph, the Red Devils are growing optimistic of striking an agreement with Rashford with respect to a new contract with the club.

Rashford has previously been deemed to be looking for at least quadruple of his current £75,000-a-week wages but the report claims that United are close to sealing his future for a lesser sum.

Nonetheless, the figure still remains a huge one with United ready to reward the marksman with a bumper £250,000-a-week contract to commit to the club for the next four years at the least.

United have been ultra active during the summer transfer window and they have landed two signings in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James from Crystal Palace and Swansea City respectively.

Rashford has netted 45 goals across all competitions for United to date.
