Marcus Rashford has agreed a new four-year Manchester United contract worth either £20,000 or £25,000 a week, depending on who you believe.
The Daily Telegraph – who claimed the exclusive – say the 18-year-old will earn £20,000 a week, ‘but appearance bonuses and other performance triggers are likely to see the striker earn significantly more than that’.
Rashford scored just 138 seconds into his England debut against Australia on Friday night and is expected to be named in Roy Hodgson’s 23-man squad for Euro 2016.
United are expected to announce before the tournament begins on June 10 that Rashford has committed his future to the club after scoring nine goals in 19 appearances for club and country since breaking through in February.
The Daily Mail claim that the deal is ‘understood to be worth an initial £25,000 a week before bonuses and over four years’, representing a massive increase on his previous wages of £1,500 a week.
They also claim that Jose Mourinho is ‘understood to be excited at the prospect of working with the striker despite reservations from some within Old Trafford that he will be suppressed next season by the arrival of new signings’.
