Manchester United will trigger a contract extension clause if Marcus Rashford failed to agree new deal

Manchester United will trigger the clause to extend the contract of Marcus Rashford for a further year if the club are unable to reach an agreement over a new deal, according to the Express.

The England international’s current deal expires at the start of next summer. And the Red Devils are looking to offer the 24-year-old a new five-year deal.

However, if Rashford does not reach an accord with the club, United will trigger the 12-month option by Christmas. With top sides like Paris Saint-Germain sniffing the England international’s signature, the Red Devils want to secure the future of their player.

United will continue to negotiate with Rashford for the time being. Erik ten Hag is keen on keeping the 24-year-old at the club following his impressive performances in the 2022/23 campaign.

Last season, Rashford had a hard time getting up to speed. After the disappointment at Euro 2020, the 24-year-old seemed to have lost confidence. The England international missed a penalty for Gareth Southgate’s team in the shootout against Italy in the final that the Three Lions lost.

Rashford was evidently unable to get over it. In the previous campaign, the 24-year-old lost his place in the starting XI. He featured in 32 games in all competitions last season where the England international scored just five goals and crafted two assists.

However, under Ten Hag, Rashford looks to have gotten back to his best. The 24-year-old has contributed with some crucial goals and assists against the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal.

Ten Hag has kept Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench in most games this season. And the England international has taken a place ahead of the Portuguese in the number nine position. It remains to be seen whether Rashford continues to be trusted to play up front by the Dutch manager.
