Three-time European champions Manchester United have opened contract talks with in-form forward Marcus Rashford to ward off the interest from major European clubs like Juventus and Real Madrid.

Sky Sports revealed that senior Manchester United officials are increasingly confident that the England international player will commit his long-term future to the club.

It was revealed that the new contract offer is worth double of his existing Red Devils contract at around £150,000 each week.

Marcus Rashford has a Manchester United contract that does not expire until the end of next season though the club can activate the additional year clause in his current deal thus taking him to the summer of 2021.

He could follow in the footsteps of fellow forward Anthony Martial by committing his future to the club.

French international Martial recently put pen to paper on a new contract at Old Trafford until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Rashford, 21, has since his stock rise at Manchester United since former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the interim manager.

He has scored six goals in the ten games played under the Norwegian including the winning goal at the weekend in a 1-0 away win over Leicester City.

The win lifted the Red Devils to the top five on the league table.
