Rashford commits to United


Marcus Rashford has signed a new contract at Manchester United, which will keep him at the club until at least 2020.

Rashford only made his first-team debut for United in February but he made an instant impact for Louis van Gaal's side, scoring two goals in the Europa League defeat of FC Midtjylland before netting a brace in the win over Arsenal three days later.

He ended the season with seven goals in 17 appearances for the Red Devils before netting within three minutes on his England debut.

The new contract will tie him to Old Trafford until 2020, with the option of a further year.

"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," Rashford told the club's official website.

"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."

United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward added: "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."

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has also signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until June 2020. Like Rashford, the 19-year-old, also has the option to extend for a further year.

Borthwick-Jackson made his senior debut against West Brom in November and went on to make 14 appearances.

"I have grown up at United and have enjoyed every minute of being here. Last season was an incredible experience to make my first team debut and a dream come true for myself and my family," he said.

"I feel it stands me in good stead for continuing my development as a Manchester United player. I will continue to work hard and take advice from the manager and his coaching team to improve with every training session."

Woodward added: "Cameron is one of a number of young players to come through our academy to make their first team debut last season. This is something that our club has always done and promoting the academy and U21 players is something that makes everybody associated with the club very proud.

"I’m delighted that Cameron has signed his new contract and look forward to seeing him in the squad for many years to come."
