Restored to his favoured central position, Marcus Rashford is showing just how good a striker he is.
At the weekend, it was his clinical finish that saw Manchester United take the three points on offer whilst also giving Ole Gunnar Solksjaer his ninth win in ten games since taking over the managerial hot-seat in a caretaker role.
However, when you are as good as Rashford is then speculation relating to a move is never that far away, even if I remain convinced that most of it is purely media driven and without any significant foundations.
But, nevertheless, it is worrying.
All Manchester United can do is ensure that Rashford is happy in his work and is rewarded financially.
Today, according to the news source, the Telegraph, that financial reward, previously mentioned, is set to be dramatically increased.
Our quoted source is reporting that the club are in talks with the 21-year-old striker over a new deal that would more than double his current salary and see it increased to £150,000 a week.
In our opinion, it is, in the current financial climate football operates in, just reward for a striker that has the ability and potential to become a superstar of the world game.
Hopefully, this new deal will quell the media speculation that continues to hound Marcus, but I wouldn’t bet on it!
