Manchester United plan imminent action to secure Marcus Rashford's future

Manchester United plan to make a move on Marcus Rashford’s contract situation before the end of the year, to ward off any interest in him from abroad.

The 25-year-old’s current deal expires next summer, but there is no imminent panic for the club as they can trigger a one-year extension to his contract.

The Daily Mail report that the Red Devils will either do that or get to work on a new contract entirely for the forward, keeping him at Old Trafford well beyond 2024.

Either way, Manchester United do not plan on getting to January with Rashford’s contract situation unchanged, as foreign clubs would then be able to speak to the striker over a summer move if nothing was amended.

Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with the England international in the past and would certainly be interested in speaking to Rashford if he was potentially available on a free transfer.

There were points during last season when a Manchester United exit looked like it was on its way for Rashford, but things have turned round for him dramatically.

It was a season to forget for him last time around as he scored just four Premier League goals, but new Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag has rejuvenated Rashford and he has already matched his league goals tally from last campaign.

Rashford’s form is likely to see him return to England’s World Cup squad for the upcoming World Cup, after goals in his last two games against Sheriff in the Europa League and West Ham in the Premier League.

He will hope to keep that up at Real Sociedad on Thursday night where the Red Devils are going to try and win by two goals or more to top their Europa League group.
