Marcus Rashford has signed a new deal with Manchester United. His contract will keep him at Old Trafford until at least June 2020, with an option to extend for another year. Though Manchester United's official statement isn't so crass as to mention any precise figures, we can assume that he's been given a whacking great payrise in the process.

Which seems fair enough. At the beginning of last season he was just another youngster in United's system; by the end, he was starting up front in the FA Cup final and making his debut for England. Not bad going for an 18-year-old; almost as impressive as his finishing has been the calmness with which he appears to be taking everything.

Here's the man himself:

I am delighted to have signed a new contract. I have always been a Manchester United fan, so to be playing in the first team really is a dream come true. I am grateful for having the chance to prove myself. To be able to play football at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family.

And on the off-chance you give a shiny flying one what Ed Woodward thinks:

Marcus is a naturally talented footballer with great potential. He has taken his chances well and has integrated into the first team very quickly. I am delighted that Marcus has signed a new contract, he is at the right club to continue his development. He is still very young and we need to be patient but he is developing in the right way and we believe he has a great future ahead of him.

Update: Cameron Borthwick-Jackson too! Woodward's been busy.
