Manchester United is negotiating a new five-year contract with Marcus Rashford, but they are only offering a maximum of £300,000 per week and will not exceed their current pay structure for him.
Manchester United is in talks with Marcus Rashford over a new five-year contract, but they want to stay within a £300,000 per week salary limit.
This is part of the club's efforts to move away from paying very high wages to players like Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba, who earned £500,000 and Cristiano Ronaldo in the past.
Rashford, who is currently earning £200,000 per week, will be offered a 50% pay increase and additional incentives.
The highest earning player at the club currently is David de Gea, who earns £375,000 per week, but his contract is ending soon, and the club will offer him reduced terms of around £275,000.
Manchester United is in talks with Marcus Rashford over a new long-term contract, and they want to keep his salary within a range of £200,000 to £300,000 per week in order to maintain harmony in the dressing room.
The club sees securing a new deal for Rashford as a priority, as they have triggered a one-year extension on his current contract, but do not want him to enter next season without a new long-term deal as other teams such as Paris Saint-Germain have expressed interest in him.
Rashford is currently in good form and has scored in his last seven games, and there is no indication that he wants to leave United.
However, the club expects a long period of negotiation as this will be the biggest contract of his career.
Additionally, Manchester United's manager, Erik ten Hag, believes that keeping top earners within a certain salary range will help maintain unity within the team.
Teammate Bruno Fernandes also praised Rashford, calling him "one of the best players in the world" and expressing confidence in his future success.
There are no indications that Rashford wants to leave the club.
However, as this is expected to be the biggest contract of his career, the club is preparing for a long period of negotiations.
