EPL: Rashford set to become Manchester United’s highest earner

Marcus Rashford is set to become Manchester United’s highest earner following plans to nearly double his current weekly wages.

The Sun reported that the Red Devils are planning to swap Rashford’s salary with that of goalkeeper David De Gea who might be exiting the club soon.

The Spaniard’s lucrative contract worth £375,000 per week expires on June 30th and discussions over fresh terms have been ongoing without any success so far. Manchester United has been trying to De Gea’s wages from £375,000 per week to £200,000 per week.

In addition to the contract talks, Manchester United is actively pursuing a goalkeeper in the transfer market. Everton and England international Jordan Pickford has emerged as a top target for the Red Devils, with the shot-stopper expressing his desire to join the prestigious club. Another name linked with a move to Old Trafford is Inter’s Andre Onana, as United looks to strengthen their options between the posts.

Rashford, on the other hand, has 12 months left on his £200,000/week contract after the club triggered an extension option this season.

As negotiations continue behind the scenes, Rashford’s immediate focus will be on international duty with England. He is expected to feature in the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifying match against North Macedonia on Monday, June 19.

David De Gea

Should Marcus Rashford become Manchester United’s highest earner, it would reflect the club’s recognition of his immense talent and growing stature in the world of football.

De Gea’s game declined last season, paving the way for transfer rumours around his name. Clubs in Saudi Arabia are reportedly interested.

The club has also been linked with many goalkeepers as the mystery surrounding the long-serving Red Devil’s future shows no signs of getting cleared.

Insiders say Old Trafford’s top brass are relaxed about the goalkeeper’s next move.

If he agrees fresh terms, that will cover the pay rise for United’s top scorer. And if he knocks it back and leaves, they save even more.
