Marcus Rashford, Manchester United’s star of the moment, who on his first match for the club, scored two goals in a must win Europa league clash and has scored important goals against Arsenal and Man-city while still going for his Chemistry and Biology exams in between training, is now set to receive a new contract worth £15,000 per week.
The boy who has been playing for Man U since he was 10, is currently on a meagre £500 per week salary despite scoring 5 goals in just 8 appearances, a good record seeing that just over a month ago he was playing for the club’s academy and wouldn’t have played if not for injury to Wayne Rooney.
According to The Sun, Rashford could now put pen to paper on his new deal in the coming weeks as United bid to ease the growing hype around their young sensation.
The new deal would mean that the 18-year-old would earn over 30 times his current wage. Rashford’s performances also mean that he has enjoyed a better start to his career than Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Wayne Rooney, no wonder the immense hype towards this talented player.
