Marcus Rashford slams ‘absurd’ rumors of £500,000-a-week contract demands at Manchester United
arcus Rashford says reports that he is seeking a new deal worth £500,000 a week to extend his deal at Manchester United is ‘complete nonsense’.
The England striker will be out of contract in 2024, with the club triggering a one-year extension earlier this season.
Negotiations continue over finalizing a long-term deal for Rashford, who has been in fine form since returning from the World Cup, scoring 19 goals in 25 appearances.
Rashford, however, rejected suggestions he was holding on for a big-paying deal to stay at Old Trafford.
“Right before this one starts doing the rounds!” This is complete nonsense,” Rashford wrote on his Instagram story.
“The club and I have been respectful to each other, and that’s how it’s going to stay. My goal is only to finish as best I can in the league and win trophies.
Rashford was called up for England’s double Euro 2024 qualifier against Italy and Ukraine but pulled out after picking up a knock in United’s Champions League quarter-final win. FA Cup v Fulham.
The 25-year-old, who spent some time in New York during the international break, returned to training with United ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game at Newcastle.
