Rashford extends Man Utd contract

Manchester United have confirmed that Marcus Rashford has put pen to paper over a new four-year deal at Old Trafford, keeping him at the club until June 2023, with an option to extend for a further year.

The 21-year-old is a successful product of our youth academy, having been at the club since he was seven years old.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased that Rashford signed a new deal, telling MUTV:

“Marcus is one of the most talented English players of his generation. He is an outstanding player; blessed with natural pace and energy.

“Marcus is a shining example of the talent that our Academy produces and his upbringing means that he truly understands what it means to play for Manchester United.

“Despite being only 21 years old, Marcus already has great experience. He has a fantastic future ahead of him with the club and I am delighted that he has signed a new contract.“

Marcus Rashford made a huge impact on his Premier League debut by scoring a brace in our win over Arsenal in February 2016.

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first took charge of the club last December he has predominantly been used in the striker role, often alternating with Romelu Lukaku.

Rashford had previously been wasted out on the wings under Jose Mourinho. With Solskjaer at the helm we can expect the youngster to continue to improve as a player and a goalscorer.
