After experiencing a dramatic dip in form in recent seasons due to a range of factors including injuries and reported problems in his personal life, Rashford has reignited his United career this season. It had been thought he could leave the club after being under contract for just a year last summer.

Erik ten Hag has tried to introduce a salary cap at the club to stave off issues that have plagued the club in recent years related to dressing rooms, jealous of wages. as Sportsmail exclusively revealed this month.

Dubbed the ‘Ronaldo rule’, the club will no longer pay superstars in the North £300,000 a week to avoid hurting their squad’s wage structure. The current negotiations with David De Gea have made the new rules clear to the goalkeeper.

It’s not entirely clear how that will affect the negotiations with Rashford, but with the striker proving his importance to the Dutch coaching squad once again this season, he has a strong hand in the negotiations.

As well as regaining his place among United’s best players, he has also confirmed his place among Gareth Southgate’s England Most Valuable Players at the World Cup. After doubts about making the squad last autumn, he started in one of the group games and scored three goals in total as England reached the quarter-finals.

After struggling under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his final days and more recently Ralf Rangnick, Rashford has bounced back this season to re-establish himself as one of the club’s best players.

With Paris Saint-Germain circulating and looking to reshuffle their forward line with Neymar and Lionel Messi both on the wrong side of 30, United have been keen to sign Rashford on new terms.

The report says an agreement is not imminent as a number of issues remain to be resolved but the club are unfazed by their situation and feel both parties want the same thing.

Rashford’s contract was due to expire next summer but the club triggered an option in his contract to extend it by a further 12 months.

His goals that season were instrumental in the rise of Ten Hag’s side up the table as they rebounded from their fiendish start to the season in which Rashford was seen as culpable as any other player for the poor results.

However, he has since grown into one of Ten Hag’s most trusted lieutenants, with his leadership on the pitch evident in both his game and the way he communicates with his teammates.

As well as his stunning form, he has also set a record that has stood for 64 years and became the first United player since Dennis Viollet in 1959 to score in nine consecutive Old Trafford games.

The player himself has taken a positive view of the changes brought about by Ten Hag’s arrival and his rapid impact on all aspects of the club.

“It’s a completely different mindset than last season, a different team playing different football,” Rashford said after beating Nottingham Forest during the festive season.

“To me, when you’re not on the team and you come, there’s a different mindset and you have to think about making an impact and you’re not sure when you’re going to get another chance or another goal. But I’m enjoying what I’m doing at the moment.’
