CONFIRMED! Marcus Rashford signs new Manchester United contract until 2020

CONFIRMED! Marcus Rashford signs new Manchester United contract until 2020 
Marcus Rashford has signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United, the Premier League club has announced.
The 18-year-old striker has enjoyed a sensational breakthrough at club and international level over the past few months.
And the Red Devils have rewarded the impressive youngster with a new deal, worth a reported £20,000-a-week, which runs until 2020 with the option to extend for a further year.
He had just one year remaining on his previous youth contract.

Rashford only made his senior debut in February but went on to score eight goals in 18 games for United, including braces on his debut against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League and in his following game against Arsenal in the Premier League.
His goal record and no-fear displays quickly led to a call-up to Roy Hodgson's England squad, and Rashford again took little time to settle and scored his first Three Lions goal just 138 seconds into his international debut.
He is now considered to be in contension for a place in England's Euro 2016, just 13 weeks after bursting onto the scene.
"I am delighted to have signed a new contract," the England international told manutd.com.
"I have always been a Manchester United fan so to be playing in the first team really is a dream come true. I am grateful for having the chance to prove myself.
"To be able to play football at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family."
United have also moved to tie up the long-term future of a fellow academy graduate Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who has penned a similar deal.
The 19-year-old defender, who also came through the academy ranks to make his first-team debut against West Brom in November, made 14 appearances and was named United's under-21 player of the year.
"I have grown up at United and have enjoyed every minute of being here," he said.
"Last season was an incredible experience to make my first-team debut and a dream come true for myself and my family.
"I feel it stands me in good stead for continuing my development as a Manchester United player.
"I will continue to work hard and take advice from the manager and his coaching team to improve with every training session."
