Marcus Rashford has reportedly put months of speculation behind him after agreeing a new long-term contract at Manchester United.

According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, the 25-year-old has an agreement in principle with United, with a five-year extension reportedly agreed between the two clubs in what would be superb news for Erik ten Hag and the United faithful.

‘Dreams of winning major trophies at United’

Rashford, who was linked to PSG in January according to The Guardian, is set to reject more lucrative proposals from abroad, whether that is the French giants or not remains to be seen, but the winger is set to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

Ornstein also reports that the Englishman dreams of winning major trophies at United. The forward’s contract was set to expire in 2024, but the signing of the deal which is, according to the same report, in the final stages will put to an end the talk over the forward’s future.

Interestingly, Ornstein also reports that there were offers from England to sign the winger who has scored over 100 goals for United.

Rashford commits to Ten Hag’s project

With 30 goals in 56 games for United last season, it’s no question that Rashford is in some of the best form of his career with some of the credit for the forward’s reemergence going to Ten Hag.

With the signing of Mason Mount and the impending signing of Andre Onana, Rashford’s contract extension will be another task ticked off the list for the United hierarchy, with the forward’s contract approaching its final year.

The project under the Dutch manager is approaching its second year, and with a trophy and Champions League football to show for all of the Dutchman’s hard work, it’s easy to see why the 25-year-old committed his future to the club.

The hope will be Rashford could form a nice partnership with Mason Mount and potentially Rasmus Hojlund, with United set to step up talks to sign the Danish forward according to Fabrizio Romano. Erik ten Hag will be pleased with the transfer business so far this summer, with sales seemingly next on the United agenda.
