United could break wage structure for Marcus Rashford

Manchester United could go beyond paying more than their new wage structure for in-form striker Marcus Rashford as they hope to tie him down with new contract.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has 18 month left on his contract and the club is ready to give the Englnd international a new contract amid intrest from French club PSG.

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the England star who will have a year left on his current deal this summer.

United, who are now reluctant to hand players bumper wages, are in talks with Rashford and know they may have to pay big to keep him.

Talksports Pundit Alex Crook said: “I think at the moment it’s just the financial aspect of this new contract that needs to be ironed out.

“He’s got 18 months left because United triggered a one-year extension, but they’ve got this so-called ‘Ronaldo Rule’ in place.

“They don’t want any one player to be earning dramatically more than another as it upsets the harmony in the dressing room.

“I think with Marcus Rashford they are going to have to go quite a way beyond their £200,000-a-week salary cap because he is sought after.

“There’s definite interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Erik ten hag and Manchester United don’t want to lose him.”

Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag believes Marcus Rashford is in the ‘best place’ to realise his ambitions as the Manchester United boss looks to construct a team that can conquer England and Europe.

Rejuvenated Rashford has been key to that upturn in fortunes and negotiations are under way over a new deal, with the homegrown star’s current contract expiring in 18 months.

“It is confidential about talks between clubs and players,” Ten Hag said. “I think he understands Man United is his club. That’s first.

“But also, in this environment, in this team, I think he is playing his best football. He’s improving and that’s about him because he’s working on the good things.

“He’s giving 100 per cent energy in it, he has a good plan and I think also in this team he can bring in his qualities. So, this team can help him get in the right position and to score goals, where he is good at.

“This team is constructed like this that his qualities come in from and I think he knows that but definitely, yeah, he’s important for us. If we want to get the success we want, we need him.”
