‘There’s more to achieve’: Rashford signs new Man United contract

MARCUS Rashford will remain at Manchester United for at least the next five years, the club confirmed today.

The forward penned the new deal today, opting to continue with the only club he has ever played for.

“Marcus Rashford has signed a new contract that will extend his stay with Manchester United until 30 June 2028,” the club announced on their official website.

“The Wythenshawe-born Academy graduate has made 359 appearances and scored 123 goals for the club since making his debut in 2016.”

Rashford was the club’s top scorer in all competitions with 30 goals last season as they won the Carabao Cup and finished third in the Premier League, and he was named the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.

“I joined Manchester United as a seven-year-old boy with a dream. That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed still drives me every time I have the honour of wearing the shirt,” the 25-year-old England forward said.

“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.”

John Murtough, Manchester United Football Director, said: “Ever since he joined our Academy 18 years ago, Marcus has epitomised what it takes to succeed as a Manchester United player.

“He is a brilliant talent but also humble, dedicated and driven. As he enters his prime years, we know there is still so much more to come from him, and we can see the hunger that Marcus feels to achieve the highest levels of success here at Manchester United.

“Working with Erik ten Hag and his coaches is the perfect environment for Marcus to continue to develop into one of the best attacking players in the world.”
