In Man Utd News, the 25-year-old has been in sublime form for Erik ten Hag's side this season with 27 goals in all competitions so far.

But the England international will enter the final year of his contract with United this summer, meaning that he could potentially leave on a free transfer if a new deal is not agreed.

Reports on Thursday claimed that Rashford is holding out for a new contract worth in excess of £500,000 a week once bonuses are factored in, however, United are said to be reluctant to offer new deals until the club's potential takeover is settled.

In another Man Utd news, Rashford, meanwhile, has branded the reports as 'nonsense' and claims he has been 'respectful' to United during negotiations.

Responding to the speculation on Twitter, Rashford wrote: '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.'

Rashford also wrote on Instagram: 'Another non-story flying around about my advisers and me making demands.

'It's complete nonsense! My aim and the club's aims are to finish as high as possible in the league and try and win a cup or two.'

In other Man Utd news, Marcus Rashford is looking to land a new £500,000-a-week deal if he is to stay at Manchester United.

Rashford wants earnings that recognise that and is seeking to become the Premier League's highest paid player, ahead of the likes of Kevin De Bruyne.

The ongoing potential sale of United has complicated matters and slowed down proceedings as the Englishman looks to cash in, reports the Daily Star.
