Twitter reacts to Rashford’s bumper new Manchester United contract

Manchester United’s 21-year-old striker Marcus Rashford has today committed his long term future to the Old Trafford outfit, signing a four-year contract worth a reported £250,000 per week.

The England international burst onto the scene as an 18-year-old during the Louis van Gaal era, scoring twice on his debut in a Europa League tie against Midtjylland.

Rashford had been heavily linked with moves to Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona earlier this summer, but that speculation has now come to an end with the attacker committing to his boyhood club until 2023.
