£78m deal: Rashford top-five in EPL wages with new Man United contract

Published

on

A new contract with Manchester United now has Marcus Rashford in the upper echelon of wages in the Premier League.

His new five-year deal keeps Rashford at his boyhood club through at least 2028. Fresh off scoring a sensational 30 goals in 56 appearances with the Red Devils, Rashford will continue his stay.

Originally, Rashford’s contract expired at the end of the 2023/24 campaign. The news of Rashford’s contract is not yet confirmed by the club. However, extension talks have been ongoing for some time.

At no point has Rashford indicated a desire to leave the club. Even then, several clubs came calling for the Englishman before and during his scintillating 2022/23 campaign. For example, PSG expressed an interest in landing Rashford. Moreover, other European clubs were prepared to pay more money to Rashford.

Yet, he elected to stay at United. There, he has ambitions to win major trophies. The silverware he has won with United in his career thus far includes an FA Cup, two League Cups and a Europa League.

The Athletic reports the new Marcus Rashford contract at Manchester United does come with a significant pay raise. Previously, Rashford was pulling in around $325,000 per week. Starting in 2024/25, Rashford will bump that up to just shy of $500,000 per week.

Rashford new United contract puts him in top tier of wages
Therefore, only three other players will be making more money per week in the Premier League than Marcus Rashford. Mohamed Salah and Kevin de Bruyne both earn $650,000 per week. Erling Haaland’s base salary is going to be the same as Rashford’s.

However, Haaland has a number of bonuses and incentives built into his contract that make him the highest-paid player in the English top flight.

Rashford signing on is a major boost of confidence for United. The club also landed Andre Onana this week as it looks to build on a successful first season under Erik ten Hag.

Fenerbahce fined over Turkish Super Cup walk-out

Fenerbahce were fined 115,000 euros ($123,175) on Thursday over their Turkish Super Cup protest at the weekend.

Fenerbahce walked off the field in the opening minutes of the fixture against Galatasaray on Sunday as a protest against alleged unfair treatment.

Fenerbahce fielded an Under-19 team for the game against their Istanbul rivals. Galatasaray went ahead after three minutes with Fenerbahce then walking off in a pre-planned protest.

The Turkish Football Federation awarded Galatasaray a 3-0 win and issued Fenerbahce with the six-figure fine.

“It’s time for Turkish football to be reset,” Fenerbahce president Ali Koc had told a press conference before the match.

Fenerbahce are chasing their first Turkish title since 2014 and are two points behind champions Galatasaray with seven rounds to go. Fenerbahce claim they are being picked on.

They had asked for the Super Cup to be postponed ahead of their Europa League quarter-final against Olympiakos on Thursday.

And the club had also demanded that a foreign referee take charge of the Super Cup, citing unfavourable treatment from Turkish referees.

Both demands were denied by the Turkish federation.
