According to reports coming from Telegraph Sport, Manchester United sensation Marcus Rashford has signed a new, long-term contract with the club.
The new deal is expected to keep the 18-year-old for four years at the Old Trafford and will see his weekly wages jump to £20,000 per week.
After a season of mediocrity, which was veiled by their win in the FA Cup Final, this news serves as the 2nd boost to the Red Devils’ faithful in less than a week.
Jose Mourinho was announced by the club on Friday and judging by the contract of Rashford, the Portuguese has immediately got to work.
In addition to Marcus Rashford and the Manchester United fans, this news will also be music to the ears of Manchester United youngsters like Borthwick-Jackson and Jesse Lingard.
Also close to agreeing a new long term deal with the club is left back Borthwick-Jackson.
The left back broke into the Manchester United team last term and the Red Devils could also award him with a contract in the coming weeks.
Judging by his managerial career, Jose Mourinho hasn’t been a fan of young talent. His last season at Chelsea was marred by controversies as the Portuguese emaciated the game time for young Loftus-Cheek.
However, if the aforementioned scenario provides a clue, Jose Mourinho is ready to change his methods in order to appease the Manchester United hierarchy.
Thus, for a club like Manchester United, which has always been famous for promoting young local talent, the current situation suggests that the club is sticking to its roots.
