Marcus Rashford is set to see his wages more than treble in a new five-year contract with Manchester United.

The 21-year-old has become an integral figure in Ole Gunnar Solskjaers team since the Norwegian took charge in December, and is set to be rewarded with a new deal.

The strikers current contract sees him earn £80,000-a-week, but the new deal is going to be worth a much chunkier £300,000-a-week, reports the Mirror.

The huge increase will see Rashford match Wayne Rooneys old terms at Old Trafford before the former England captain departed for Everton in 2017.

Rashfords current deal expires in the summer of 2020 and the club have the possibility to extend it for another year.

However, they are choosing to scrap that contract and offer the forward a substantially better one to fend off interest from the likes of Real Madrid, who would want to tempt Rashford away from the Red Devils.

The five-year contract would see Rashford tied to the club until 2024, over which time he would earn £15.8m-a-year and an enormous £78m in total.

The goalkeeper is out of contract at the end of next season, just like Rashford, and Paris Saint-Germain are very interested in his services if United cannot come to an agreement with him.
