Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has refuted claims that he is holding out for a £500,000-a-week contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
A report in the Daily Star had suggested that Rashford’s future at the club was uncertain due to the ongoing sale of the team and his wage demands.
However, Rashford took to social media to deny the claims, stating that he and the club have been respectful to one another and that his focus is on finishing the season strongly and winning trophies.
“Just before this one starts to do the rounds! It’s complete nonsense,” he posted. “The club and make self [sic] have been respectful to one another, and that’s how it will remain.
“My focus is purely on finishing as well as possible in the league and winning trophies.”
Rashford added on Instagram: “Another non-story flying around about my advisors and me making demands. It’s complete nonsense!
“My aim and the club’s aims are to finish as high as possible in the league and to try and win a cup or two.”
Rashford’s goals tally this season has been bettered only by Kylian Mbappe (31) and Erling Haaland (42) among players across Europe’s top five leagues.
