Burgeoning Premier League striker has signed a fresh four-year contract at Manchester United which keeps him at the club until at least 2020 with an option for extension.

The 18-year-old highly rated England forward who scored three minutes into his Three Lions debut against Australia, came through the ranks of United’s academy and was handed a first-team debut for the Europa League game against Midtjylland.

Marcus Rashford grabbed his opportunity with both hands by scoring twice, a feat he remarkably repeated three days later on his first league appearance against Arsenal.

So far, Rashford has made 17 appearances for the Old Trafford giants scoring eight spectacular goals in the process and is delighted to have put pen to paper on a new deal believed to be worth £25,000 per week.

“I am delighted to have signed a new contract. I have always been a Manchester United fan, so to be playing in the first team really is a dream come true,” Rashford, who is in contention for Roy Hodgson’s final 23-man squad to this summer’s European Championship in France said.

“I am grateful for having the chance to prove myself. To be able to play football at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family.”

United Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward added: “Marcus is a naturally talented footballer with great potential. He has taken his chances well and has integrated into the first team very quickly.

“I am delighted that Marcus has signed a new contract, he is at the right club to continue his development. He is still very young and we need to be patient but he is developing in the right way and we believe he has a great future ahead of him.”
