Marcus Rashford: Manchester United forward signs new five-year contract at Old Trafford until 2028

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has signed a new five-year contract at the club, ending speculation over his future.

The England international, who has agreed a deal until the summer of 2028, rejected more lucrative offers from England and abroad to stay at Manchester United. His previous deal expired at the end of the upcoming 2023/24 season.

Rashford was rejuvenated under manager Erik Ten Hag last season after a difficult 18 months and went on to be United’s top scorer with 30 goals in all competitions.

The 25-year-old became the first player to breach the 30-goal mark for United since Robin van Persie in the 2012/13 season.

Rashford’s goals last season helped United secure a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League, which has helped convince him the club is on the right path under Ten Hag.

“I joined Manchester United as a seven-year-old boy with a dream. That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed still drive me every time I have the honour of wearing the shirt,” said Rashford after signing his new deal.

“I’ve already had some amazing experiences at this incredible club, but there is still a lot more to achieve and I remain relentlessly determined to win more trophies in the years ahead.

“As a United fan all my life, I know the responsibility that comes with representing this badge and feel the highs and lows as much as anyone. I can assure you that I will give everything to help the team reach the level we are capable of, and I can feel the same determination around the dressing room. I couldn’t be more excited for the future under this manager.”

Rashford has made 359 appearances and scored 123 goals for the club since making his debut in 2016.

Man Utd football director John Murtough added: “Ever since he joined our Academy 18 years ago, Marcus has epitomized what it takes to succeed as a Manchester United player. He is a brilliant talent but also humble, dedicated and driven.

“As he enters his prime years, we know there is still so much more to come from him, and we can see the hunger that Marcus feels to achieve the highest levels of success here at Manchester United. Working with Erik ten Hag and his coaches is the perfect environment for Marcus to continue to develop into one of the best-attacking players in the world.”
