Marcus Rashford signs new four-year contract at Manchester United


Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has penned a new contract at the club, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2023.

The 21-year-old’s agreement also contains the option for a further year that can be triggered by the Red Devils. Rashford, who came through the youth set up, has made 170 appearances for the club since making his debut in 2016. His existing deal was due to expire at the end of next season.

The England striker spoke to the club’s website expressing his delight at the extension:

“Manchester United has been everything in my life since I arrived here at the age of seven. This club has shaped me, both as a player and as a person, so it is such a privilege every time I get the opportunity to wear the shirt.

I want to thank Ole and his staff for everything they have done for me; they are the perfect group of coaches to learn from as I continue my development and look to push on to the next level.

I will be giving everything I have to help get this club back to where it belongs and deliver the success that our fans deserve.”

After arriving on the scene as a young 18-year-old and enjoying a stellar start to his professional career, the Manchester born man has scored fourty-six goals for United and has won 32 caps for England.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:

“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.”
