Rashford rubbishes United rumours

As talks between the star and his club continue, the forward took to social media to trash claims that he wants to be the club’s biggest earner with a £500,000-a-week deal.

In response to a tweet that has since been deleted, Rashford said:

“Just before this one starts to do the rounds! It's complete nonsense. The club and myself have been respectful to one another, and that's how it will remain. My focus is purely on finishing as well as possible in the league and winning trophies.”

Meanwhile, talks are said to be progressing despite the delicate situation at United, who are at a delicate stage of a looming takeover.

Why Rashford deserves new deal

As far as his football is concerned, Rashford has been United’s go-to guy for goals this campaign.

His form particularly took off after the World Cup, and he has gone on an incredible run that has seen him score 16 goals in 19 matches since Qatar.

Arsenal spending to keep Saka

Elsewhere, Arsenal are also looking to tie down Bukayo Saka with a new deal, by reportedly offering him a bumper five-year £300,000-a-week deal.

Sports Brief reported that he has been one of the Gunners' standouts this season, helping the club into a good position to win the Premier League.

Saka has netted an eyewatering 12 goals in the league so far and has 10 assists, in what is becoming his best season since joining the first team.
