Marcus Rashford has signed a new long-term contract at Manchester United that will extend his stay at the club until 2028.

Rashford, 25, had entered the final year of his previous deal and has now penned a new five-year agreement worth £400k per week. This represents a significant pay rise on his previous £200k-a-week salary, penned during his last extension in 2019.

Rashford was rejuvenated under manager Erik ten Hag last season after a difficult 18 months and went on to be United’s top scorer with 30 goals in all competitions.

The 25-year-old became the first player to breach the 30-goal mark for United since Robin van Persie in the 2012/13 season.

The forward has spent the entirety of his senior career at United, whom he joined aged seven and, since graduating from their academy, has scored 123 goals in 359 senior appearances – becoming a mainstay of the first-team since his debut in February 2016.

Speaking to club channels, Rashford said: “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.

“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.”

United have already strengthened their squad this summer after midfielder Mason Mount completed his move to Old Trafford  from Chelsea in a deal worth £55million plus £5m in add-ons. The Red Devils also agreed a short-term contract for former defender Jonny Evans on Tuesday.
