Marcus Rashford, the skilled striker for Manchester United, has signed a new contract with the club. This contract will make sure he stays with the team until 2028 and he will be earning a significant amount of money each week, £325,000.

Last season, with the guidance of their new manager, Erik ten Hag, Rashford experienced an incredible resurgence, scoring an impressive 30 goals in 56 matches. Since making his debut against Midtjylland in 2016, the 25-year-old has amassed a total of 123 goals in 359 games for his beloved club.

Rashford expressed his strong connection to the team, saying, “I joined Manchester United as a young boy with a dream. That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed continue to drive me every time I have the honor of wearing the iconic shirt. While I have already had incredible experiences at this esteemed club, there is still much more to achieve, and I remain relentlessly committed to winning more trophies in the years to come.”

Match Highlights

Despite receiving tempting offers from other clubs, Rashford chose to remain loyal to Manchester United. He turned down the chance for more financial gains elsewhere as he believes in the team and his manager’s ability to lead them to more success. Rashford said, “I assure you that I will give my all to help the team reach its full potential, and I sense the same determination within the dressing room. I couldn’t be more excited about the future under this manager.”

Throughout his career, Rashford has faced challenges both on and off the field. After his penalty miss in the Euro 2020 final against Italy, he, along with two other England players, experienced racial abuse. Additionally, in August 2021, he had shoulder surgery, which affected his performance and led to a modest goal count of five during the season. As a consequence, Gareth Southgate excluded him from the England squad for four Nations League matches in June 2022.

Nevertheless, Rashford’s fortune changed for the better last season, especially after the World Cup. He managed to net an impressive 10 goals in as many Premier League games after the tournament’s restart. His contribution played a crucial part in Manchester United securing a spot in the Champions League, and he even scored in the Carabao Cup final, helping the team secure a victory against Newcastle United.

John Murtough, Manchester United’s football director, praised Rashford for embodying the qualities needed to succeed at the club. Murtough said, “He is an exceptional talent, yet he remains humble, dedicated, and driven. As he enters his prime years, we believe there is still much more to come from him, and we can see the hunger that Marcus possesses to achieve the highest levels of success here at Manchester United. Collaborating with Erik ten Hag and his coaching staff provides the ideal environment for Marcus to further develop into one of the world’s best attacking players.”
