After a few days of reports in the paper, Marcus Rashford has today signed a contract extension with Manchester United which will see him at the club for another four years. Rashford joined the club when he was seven and scored for the U-18s, U-21s and first team in the season just gone.

I am delighted to have signed a new contract. I have always been a Manchester United fan, so to be playing in the first team really is a dream come true. I am grateful for having the chance to prove myself. To be able to play football at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family.

Ed Woodward has sung the praises of our youngster.

Marcus is a naturally talented footballer with great potential. He has taken his chances well and has integrated into the first team very quickly. I am delighted that Marcus has signed a new contract, he is at the right club to continue his development. He is still very young and we need to be patient but he is developing in the right way and we believe he has a great future ahead of him.
