Manchester United report: Marcus Rashford to 'delay new contract talks' due to concerns over role

  • 3 month ago

Marcus Rashford has thrown his future at Manchester United into doubt by delaying talks over a new contract with the club.

Old Trafford chiefs are keen to tie the 20-year-old down to a new long-term deal to secure his future and to reward him after coming through the club’s academy into the first-team.

Rashford has two-years left on his current £70,000-a-week contract, with the option of another 12 months.

But, according to The Sun, the England international is set to delay any talks over his future as he harbours doubts over his future in the team.

Recent reports have claimed Rashford is frustrated over his lack of first-team action since the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez.

And with Jose Mourinho set to splash more cash this summer, Rashford fears being further overlooked.

An Old Trafford source is quoted: “Marcus loves it here but there are concerns with what the boss could do this summer.

“Everyone is currently on the same page.

"This is his club, but you never know what is going to happen.

“United just have a nagging feeling that if they leave it much later into his present deal, they won't hold all the cards.

“He is still struggling to make the starting eleven under Jose, so it is likely.”
