Marcus Rashford signs new Man Utd deal

Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has signed a new five-year contract with the club until 2028, the club has announced. 

The renewal follows a remarkable season for the 25-year-old, in which he bagged 30 goals and 11 assists in 56 appearances for the Red Devils.

Rashford was United’s talisman and helped them win their first trophy in six years. They lifted the Carabao Cup after defeating Newcastle United in the final. 

He was instrumental as they reached the FA Cup final and made it into the top four in the Premier League.

Since breaking into the first team in the 2015/16 campaign, the Manchester-born forward has grown from strength to strength.

He has netted 123 goals and 68 assists in 356 appearances for his boyhood club.

Injuries threatened to hamper his career, but he has put those worries behind him after his stellar 2022/23 campaign. 

Rashford has become a regular England international and helped the Three Lions reach the final of the 2020 European Championship.

He scored three goals at the 2022 World Cup to help England reach the quarter-final, where many people believe manager Gareth Southgate should have started him as they crashed out against France.

Rashford said (via Man Utd’s official website): “I joined Manchester United as a seven-year-old boy with a dream.

“That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed still drive me every time I have the honour of wearing the shirt.

“I’ve already had some amazing experiences at this incredible club, but there is still a lot more to achieve and I remain relentlessly determined to win more trophies in the years ahead.

“As a United fan all my life, I know the responsibility that comes with representing this badge and feel the highs and lows as much as anyone. 

“I can assure you that I will give everything to help the team reach the level we are capable of, and I can feel the same determination around the dressing room.

“I couldn’t be more excited for the future under this manager.”
