Marcus Rashford pulls back from Man Utd contract talks

Marcus Rashford is stalling new contract talks with Manchester United.

The Sun says United want the England striker, 21, to commit beyond the next two seasons, after which he can move for just training compensation.

But it is understood Rashford wants to be sure the club are heading in the right direction after dropping out of the Premier League top four.

Rashford has played in the Champions League in the last two seasons but will back in the Europa League - the competition he made his explosive debut in three years ago - following United's end-of-season slump.

Rashford's contract expires at the end of next season but the club have an option to extend that by a year, which they will trigger if they cannot agree on a new deal.
