Man United will offer contract to "devastating forward" - he's a "game changer"

Manchester United are set to offer Marcus Rashford a new "long-term deal" according to Fabrizio Romano.

Rashford has had a sensational start to the World Cup this winter scoring three goals in three matches, two of which came in England's 3-0 win over Wales.

The 25-year-old had a terrible season last year under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick, however, since Erik ten Hag has taken charge at Man United, we have seen the Rashford of old.

He has managed to contribute eight goals and three assists in his 19 appearances across all competitions.

"He is a devastating player"

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand has heaped praise upon the England forward and claims he has "played himself into the team."

“I think this all stems from working hard and getting back to basics," Ferdinand said on the BBC.

“He didn’t look happy for a while. When you have a smiling, confident, hard-working Marcus Rashford he is a devastating player, a game-changer. If he gets you one v one he has the pace to go past you and has imagination and he can finish.

“It all stems from the basic fundamentals of football, which is graft and hard work, which he kind of went away from last season. He’s back to it and I look at the big players at this tournament and they will be looking at him and saying ‘wow, Marcus Rashford’. He’s played himself into the team.”
