Rashford set for new United deal

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is reportedly in line to sign a new six-year contract and thereby put an end to the recent speculation regarding his future.

The England international has been in sparkling form for the Red Devils since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment in December and he has contributed six goals in the past eight league matches.

Such form has seen him linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid in the summer but according to The Mirror, United are said to have found the breakthrough in terms of a new deal with their graduate.

It is added that the 21-year-old will put pen-to-paper on a fresh six-year contract with the club with a significant increase on his current £75,000-a-week wages.

Rashford was recently played out wide against Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round with both Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard on the sidelines but he was still effective with a brilliant cross for Paul Pogba's goal.
