Despite his midweek heroics at Upton Park whereby his stunning strike set Manchester United on the way to an appearance in the FA Cup semi-finals, with a tie against Everton beckoning, it seems that Marcus Rashford is still the pauper of the Manchester United squad.

Reports appearing in The Sun this morning suggest that there have been no talks relating to a new contract for the eighteen year old striker who has already netted six times since breaking into the first team.

Our source is suggesting that Rashford is still on a contract whereby he`s paid £1,500 a week plus a bonus of £5,000 every time he makes an appearance for the first team.

Perhaps Manchester United, knowing that Rashford still has eighteen months to run on his current contract, are simply biding their time.

However Rashford`s rise to fame isn`t according to Michael Carrick, a temporary thing with the experienced midfielder remarking about his young team-mate,

“I don`t think he`s a flash in the pan.

“I think he`s here to stay. He doesn`t change and he works hard, he listens and is willing to learn and he has a great chance of staying at the top for a long time.”

It`s also being reported by the Daily Mail that when Rashford was a young sapling, aged seven, he turned down the chance to join Liverpool to become a Manchester United youngster, what a sensible lad.
