Marcus Rashford is set to put pen to paper on a new contract with Manchester United, ending speculation over his future at the club.

The England international has been hesitant to sign a new deal with the Red Devils, with the likes of Barcelona and Juventus showing interest in him.

That is not surprising seen as Rashford is currently on £80,000-a-week, and it had previously been reported that United were willing to go as high as £300,000-a-week for the young forward.

Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia have already departed, while Romelu Lukaku is expected to move to Inter Milan and Paul Pogba is attempting to engineer a move to Real Madrid.
