Marcus Rashford is currently having his most successful season as a footballer, demonstrating exceptional performance throughout the campaign.
With 27 goals and nine assists in 44 games for Manchester United, the Englishman has been in impressive form.
In recent times, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding Rashford’s future at United.
The 25-year-old’s current contract with the club is set to expire in the summer of 2024.
Undoubtedly, United will be eager to secure their star player with a longer contract.
With increasing discussions surrounding his future, The Daily Star published a report on Wednesday afternoon, which suggested that Rashford is aiming to secure a new contract with Manchester United worth over £500,000 per week.
This amount would surpass the current highest-paid player in the Premier League by a considerable margin.
The report quickly gained traction on social media, prompting Rashford to respond shortly after it emerged.
When a Man United fan account shared the report on Twitter, Rashford replied, “Just before this one starts to do the rounds! It’s complete nonsense.”
“The club and make self have been respectful to one another, and that’s how it will remain. My focus is purely on finishing as well as possible in the league and winning trophies.”
