Former Premier League champions Manchester United have reportedly concluded plans to trigger a one-year contract extension for star forward Marcus Rashford.

According to the report from The Sun, Manchester United want to trigger the additional year clause in his present contract at Manchester United.

It was revealed that the priority, for now, is to activate the additional year clause in Marcus Rashford’s deal, thus taking his time at Manchester United to the end of the 2020/21.

After the one-year clause in his contract has been activated, Manchester United will work on tying him down to a long-term contract.

Marcus Rashford has one year left on his current deal with Manchester United and the triggered clause means that the England international player will have two years left on his contract.

The 21-year-old has been linked with the best clubs on the European continent but Manchester United are desperate to hang on to his services.

Major European sides like Italian Serie A giants Juventus as well as the Spanish La Liga duo of Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been linked with Marcus Rashford in the past.

Marcus Rashford is the top choice striker at Manchester United since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of the team.

He scored 13 goals in all competitions last season.
