Manchester United are set to trigger Marcus Rasford’s 12-month contract extension, according to a report in England.
The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are prepared to extend Rashford’s deal by an additional 12 months to end talk of the English forward potentially leaving this summer.
The same article states that FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are both interested in Rashford as his contract continues to run down ahead of its expiration next summer.
According to the same story, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to keep the homegrown talent at the 20-time English champions beyond the summer.
The Sun go on to add that the Red Devils will extend his deal by an extra year as England international Rashford continues to pocket £180,000 a week at Old Trafford.
Manchester United are facing speculation surrounding key players such as Paul Pogba, David De Gea and Romelu Lukaku this summer.
Solskjaer has only signed one new player so far after Wales international Daniel James completed a £15m move to Manchester United from Swansea City.
The Red Devils have a lot of work to do to overhaul Manchester City and Liverpool FC following their sixth-placed finish last term.
Manchester United haven’t won a major trophy in the past two seasons – and they haven’t challenged for the Premier League since 2013.
