Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is celebrating getting engaged to his long-term partner.

Rashford dated the engagement picture for May 24, showing it happened yesterday, and he is now sharing the good news.

The personal news comes in the same week his book won a top prize at the BBC Book Awards.


Off the pitch, Rashford’s life is all coming together, and he should be happier than ever. On the pitch, it hasn’t quite been the same story in 2021/22.

Rashford is coming off a poor season in which he only scored five goals, having netted 21 the previous season and 22 the year before that.

He struggled for form and failed to win over interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who preferred Anthony Elanga as a regular starter.

He was dropped from the England squad as a result, and faces a fight to reclaim his spot for the World Cup.

Rashford now has a fresh start under new manager Erik ten Hag, and a report in The Telegraph says he intends to fight for his place and win the Dutchman over.

The Manchester United forward’s contract runs out in 2023, although there is an option to extend to 2024, so he will want to earn a renewal with Ten Hag’s approval. As we said earlier, he has to prove he deserves it.

There is hope that perhaps this good personal news, getting engaged, could have a positive impact on his wellbeing off the pitch and help him rediscover his form.

Last May, The Sun had reported Rashford had split from his partner, having been together for eight years. The Mirror then reported they reunited in January this year.

Now engaged, Rashford’s relationship is stronger than ever, and we hope he can enjoy a similar resurgence in a United shirt next season.
