Manchester United will reportedly trigger a clause to extend Marcus Rashford’s deal by one year if they are unable to agree a new contract with the forward.

Talks are said to be ongoing between United and Rashford over a new deal but an agreement has yet to be reached.
United are eager not to lose Rashford for free next summer and if they activated the option for a 12-month extension then they would be able to get a transfer fee for him if he was to depart.
But Erik ten Hag is keen to keep Rashford, especially following his impressive start to the season which has seen him score two goals and provide three assists in six Premier League appearances.

Rashford has endured much frustration over the past couple of seasons as he has struggled for form and has also endured niggling injuries.
However, there have been some encouraging signs for Rashford under Ten Hag so far and he is also hoping to break back into the England squad for the World Cup.
Since making his United debut in 2015, Rashford has made 309 appearances and scored 96 goals.
