Marcus Rashford has expressed his reasons for committing his prime years to Manchester United, as he recently signed a new contract that extends his stay at his beloved club until June 30, 2028.

The forward, who made his debut for the club in 2016, has already amassed an impressive record of 359 appearances and 123 goals for Manchester United.

In the previous season, Rashford stood out as the team’s star player, scoring 30 goals across all competitions. His exceptional performance earned him the prestigious Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards.

Furthermore, Rashford’s goal-scoring contributions played a vital role in helping Manchester United secure a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League.

This achievement and the club’s apparent progress under manager Erik ten Hag reportedly played a significant part in convincing the England international that Manchester United is heading in the right direction, motivating him to commit his future to the club.

Why Rashford signed a new United contract

As perSky Sports News,the 25-year-old rejected more lucrative offers from England and abroad to stay at Old Trafford.

His previous contract was set to expire next summer, and Rashford claimed that it was a desire to win silverware at United that incentivised him to commit his best years there.

On the new deal Rashford told the clubwebsite: “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.”
