Man United to make Marcus Rashford world's highest-paid teenager - reports

Manchester United are ready to hand Marcus Rashford a bumper new contract less than four months after penning his last deal, according to widespread media reports on Sunday.

Rashford, 18, burst into the United team from nowhere in February by scoring twice in a Europa League victory over FC Midtjylland. 

He went on to score five goals in 11 Premier League appearances, as well as netting on his England debut and being part of Roy Hodgson's squad for Euro 2016.

Rashford is reportedly on £20,000-a-week on his current contract, but the Daily Mirror reports that he will receive a significant pay rise.

Marcus Rashford scored Manchester United's late winner at Hull last month.

The Sun reports that Rashford's new contract will earn him £50,000-a-week, making him the highest-paid teenager in the world along with Bayern Munich's Renato Sanches. 

The striker has spent much of the early part of the season on the bench under new United boss Jose Mourinho, and came on to score United's injury-time winner at Hull last month. He then netted a hat trick on his England under-21 debut against Norway.

But Mourinho has seen enough to make sure Rashford, who in May signed a deal until at least 2020, is tied to the club on improved terms.
