Manchester United are reportedly set to multiply Rashford Marcus earnings by ten following his stunning displays for Manchester United in two games.
According to reports from England, United will bring forward talks over a new £15,000-a-week deal for Marcus Rashford following the teenage striker’s sensational breakthrough at Old Trafford.
Rashford scored twice on his Premier League debut in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Arsenal to take his total to four goals in his first two games for United’s senior team following a brace earlier in the week in a UEFA Europa League tie.
The club were already looking to upgrade Rashford’s current £1,500-a-week deal that is due to run out in the summer of 2017 BUT they now want to reward the teenager by fast-tracking negotiations and tying him to a more lucrative contract even sooner.
Rashford, who has been at United since the age of nine, already has a boot deal with Nike after he finished last season as the top scorer for the club’s Under 18s.
His progression since then has been quite remarkable. In September, he was handed the captaincy of the Under 19s, and then made his debut for the Under 21s. By November he was on the bench for Van Gaal’s side at Watford.
Rashford made his debut against Midtjylland on Thursday night when he was thrown into action at the last minute because Anthony Martial hurt his hamstring in the warm-up.
The youngster scored two goals against the Danes and then repeated the feat against Arsenal.
