(Football news) Manchester United are going to offer a contract extension to Marcus Rashford before the end of the season. United triggered their one-year option in Rashford’s contract in December which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2024, but the club are very keen for him to agree a long-term deal. Sources claim that Rashford is focused on having a successful end to the season but his representatives are expected to make a step forward in negotiations before the end of the season.
United would like to reach an agreement by the end of the year or ideally in the summer before the new season starts. Paris Saint-Germain have been great admirers of Rashford in the past, but the 25-year-old is expected to stay in Manchester as he is enjoying the best season of his career under the management of Erik ten Hag. Manchester United are desperately looking to sign a striker in the summer transfer window as Rashford remains an integral part of Ten Hag’s plans next season.
The club are now ready to listen to offers for a number of senior players. They want to increase the summer budget and stick to the financial fair play constraints. Scott McTominay is reportedly one of the players who might leave this summer as he is wanted by Newcastle United, while there are a number of Premier League clubs who are interested in Harry Maguire as Victor Lindelof was heavily linked to Inter in the winter transfer window and Dean Henderson wants to leave the club for the lack of opportunities.
Eric Bailly and Alex Telles are expected to leave permanently after their loan spells this season while Anthony Elanga and Brandon Williams are likely to move out on loan. The contracts of Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe are set to end in June. United are carrying out an internal investigation before taking a decision on Mason Greenwood’s future at the club.
David De Gea’s contract is also set to expire next month and he too is keen to extend his contract with Manchester United. In a recent interview with Sky Sports he expressed his desire to stay at the club but according to reports he has to take a massive wage drop considering he’s one of the highest paid players in the Premier league.
