Marcus Rashford has responded to reports that he is demanding a contract with Manchester United that pays him £500,000 per week.
This season, the 25-year-old forward has scored 27 goals across all competitions for Erik ten Hag’s team.
However, the England international will enter the final year of his United contract this summer, which means that if a new contract is not agreed upon, he may leave on a free transfer.
Reports on Thursday guaranteed that Rashford is waiting for another agreement worth in overabundance of £500,000 a week once bonuses are calculated in, notwithstanding, United are supposed to be hesitant to offer new arrangements until the club’s potential takeover is settled.
Meanwhile, Rashford has called the reports “nonsense” and asserts that he has treated United with “respect” during negotiations.
Rashford wrote in response to the rumors on Twitter: “Just before this one starts to do the rounds! It’s complete nonsense.
“The club and myself have been respectful to one another, and that’s how it will remain.
“My focus is purely on finishing as well as possible in the league and winning trophies.”
In addition, Rashford wrote on Instagram: “Another non-story flying around about my advisers and me making demands.
“It’s complete nonsense! My aim and the club’s aims are to finish as high as possible in the league and try and win a cup or two.”
