Marcus Rashford eager to take Manchester United "back where they belong"

The 21-year-old has signed a new contract with the cub, keeping him with United until 2023, with an option for a further year, after putting pen-to-paper on a new deal on Monday.

The new deal reportedly puts him amongst the top earners at the club, with the sum according to reports being £300,000 per week, as the Englishman was significantly rewarded for his progress ever since getting into the first-team back in 2016.

Rashford has clearly set his sights to take the club back where it belongs, saying that "There's nothing I [Rashford] want more than to see the club winning the Premier League agan."

With the current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, being determined to rebuild the team, after what was a truly disastrous season with the club finishing in sixth place, through two young players signing for the club already in Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Rashford spoke of his willingness to take make the club strong enough to win titles again, with the Englishman saying "Everybody here deserves much, much more than what we’re giving them right now, not only the fans, the club itself. They don’t deserve to be where they are now."

Rashford had a wonderful spell early on in Solskjaer's managerial stint last season, scoring six goals in eight games, but goals soon dried up and he ended the season with just one goal in 11 Premier League games.

Despite his struggles late on in the season, Rashford has expressed his enjoyment in working under Solskjaer, saying that "the fact that he understands us way more than a normal manager is why he’s fitted in straight away."

Solskjaer has also expressed his contentment at the Englishman signing a new deal, calling Rashford, "one of the most talented English players of his generation".
