Marcus Rashford ‘ready to sign new Manchester United deal’

Marcus Rashford is reportedly ‘ready’ to sign a new long-term contract with Manchester United.
The England international will see his current deal expire in the summer of 2020, although the Red Devils do have the option to extend it for another 12 months.

Barcelona are believed to be circling the 21-year-old, however, with the Spanish giants looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.

This season, the attacker has scored 12 times and registered nine assists in 38 appearances in all competitions for United, who recently appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent boss.

According to the Daily Mail, Rashford is now close to penning a long-term contract with the Red Devils, as the club’s decision on Solskjaer convinced the youngster that he should remain at Old Trafford.

Rashford scored in United’s FA Cup defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers before the international break, but he has not registered in the Premier League since the start of February.
