It looks like Marcus Rashford is about to commit his long-term future to Manchester United.

One of the bright sparks from a disappointing season for Manchester United has been the emergence of Rashford.

The youngster has been in incredible form in his breakthrough season with the Red Devils scoring eight goals in 18 matches.

He’s come a long way from relative obscurity at the start of the season and is even beginning to make waves at international level after being called up to Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad.

Rashford’s new long-term deal at Manchester United is set to be announced before the start of Euro 2016, the Sunday Telegraph reports.

The exact details of Rashford’s contract are unclear but it is thought he has agreed to stay at Old Trafford on a four-year deal with wage increases based on appearances and other performance clauses. It is thought that Rashford will start off on £20,000-a-week, but performances clauses should see give him the room to earn a lot more.

Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will reportedly also be rewarded with a new deal this summer after also breaking into the United team this season.
