Marcus Rashford signs new contract with Manchester United


Marcus Rashford has signed a new contract with Manchester United, tieing his future to Old Trafford until the summer of 2023, with an option to extend it for another season.

The 21-year-old broke into the Red Devils' first team in the 2015-16 season under Louis Van Gaal. He marked his first-team debut in the Europa League Round-of-32 against Danish side Midtylland with two goals. Three days later he made his Premier League debut against Arsenal, again scoring twice.

He has gone on to win 32 caps for the English national team, scoring seven goals, and featuring in Euro 2016 and the World Cup in 2018.

Speaking after the announcement of the contract extension, Rashford said, “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.”

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who took the job permanently in March said, “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-year- 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."
