RASHFORD : About to pen new United deal
The striker’s current £75,000-a-week deal runs until 2020, with the option of an extra 12 months.
But Old Trafford bosses are aware Rashford has become one of the most sought-after stars in the game and have no intention of losing him.
The new deal would keep him at Old Trafford until 2024 and make him one of the Premier League’s highest paid stars.
Rashford put talks on hold towards the end of last season over concerns about his role in the team and lack of starts under Jose Mourinho.
But he knows how valuable he has become to United, scoring six goals in 10 appearances since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho in December and ousting Romelu Lukaku as United’s No.1 striker in the process.
Meanwhile Solskjaer’s assistant Mike Phelan has urged United’s stars to embrace the current run of 10 games unbeaten and look to get even better.
He believes there is much more to come between now and the end of the season.
Phelan said: “We’re chasing a pack, but I have known Manchester United claw back points before.
“We can only do our own job, keep doing what we’ve been doing, keep pressing all of the right buttons.
