CONFIRMED: 12-goals, 9-assists fan favourite set to remain at Man United beyond summer

According to reports, Manchester United are allegedly ready to activate an option to elongate the contract of forward Marcus Rashford, while new contract terms are believed to have been agreed with midfielder Ander Herrera.

United are facing a vital few weeks as they try to secure UEFA Champions League place for next term, while also attempting to get past La Liga champions FC Barcelona in the quarter finals to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has undoubtedly performed pretty well since being named temporary manager back in December, but the player will be highly desperate to avoid watching his team lose their good momentum after recent defeats.

The last thing that Ole needs right now is distraction off the field, but as per The Sun, it’s suggested that the Red Devils are expected to trigger their 1-year deal option on the England international forward as discussions over a fresh long-term contract have yet to be agreed.

That appears to be like a brilliant decision as ultimately it hands the two parties involved more time to reach a longer agreement, while making sure that the team isn’t left endangered to a rival submitting a bid for the Englishman.

The forward has netted 12 goals and created nine assists in 38 matches so far this term, as he has found his feet once again under manager Solskjaer.

Meanwhile, according to The Sun, Spain international midfielder Herrera has agreed on a fresh deal with 20-time English champions Manchester United, with his present contract set to run out at the end of the campaign.
