Marcus Rashford will wait until the end of the season to appoint an agent before signing a new contract at Manchester United, the Daily Mail reports.
United are keen to tie Rashford to a lucrative deal after the teenage striker scored seven goals in his first 13 games for Louis van Gaal’s side.
But the player’s mother Mel and his brothers have been handling Rashford’s business affairs until now and want the 18-year-old to be properly represented before he sits down for talks with the club.
The Rashford camp are in discussions with several agencies desperate to sign up one of the Premier League’s brightest young talents.
Rashford’s current contract runs out in the summer of 2017, but the delay in signing a new one is likely to benefit him as he continues his remarkable scoring form.
The youngster currently earns £1,500-a-week – not including a £5,000 bonus for each appearance and win – and that was set to rise to £15,000 after he burst onto the scene by scoring four goals in his first two games against FC Midtjylland and Arsenal in February.
But Rashford could command an even bigger pay rise after grabbing the winning goals in the Manchester derby and against Aston Villa last weekend, as well as scoring with a fantastic effort in the FA Cup quarter-final win over West Ham.
He is expected to lead United’s attack in Saturday’s semi-final against Everton at Wembley, and has also been mentioned as a possible contender for England’s Euro 2016 squad.
But Van Gaal claimed on Thursday that Rashford still has a lot to learn, and believes he deserves credit for having the ‘guts’ to give the striker his big break at Old Trafford.
