United told to match Martial wages by Rashford
Man Utd have reportedly been told by Marcus Rashford's camp they want parity with Anthony Martial's new £190,000 per week agreement.
The striker remains in talks with the club over a new five-year deal and is ready to commit his future in a similar fashion to his French team-mate.
Old Trafford insiders are stressing caution at this stage, with financial terms still being thrashed out and talks expected to continue over the coming days.
It's understood the Red Devils have initially proposed to double Rashford's weekly wages to £150,000-a-week, with the promise of incremental reviews each year.
The 21-year-old's advisers, however, know similar terms were recently rejected by Martial before the club came back to the table with more money.
Similar to the France international, Rashford has entered the final 12 months of his deal and knows United have deep pockets and are desperate to retain his services.
The Manchester-born starlet appeared to be heading for the exit door under former boss Jose Mourinho. However, the arrival of caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sparked a resurgence in form and Rashford certainly knows his worth on the open market.
