Marcus Rashford is ready to sign a new deal at Manchester United following the permanent appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.

Solskjaer was handed a three-year contract on Thursday and Rashford believes he can win titles under the Norwegian.

The 21-year-old has scored eight times under Solskjaer and is beginning to develop a lethal partnership with Romelu Lukaku, who hit form in the lead up to the international break.

Rashford’s current contract has a one-year extension clause, but United are keen to tie him down to a longer one.

Rashford was one of the many United players who rushed to congratulate Solskjaer on getting the job on a permanent basis.

He tweeted ‘Congrats boss’ on Thursday following the announcement of the appointment. 

Solskjaer has won 14 games out of 19 as interim boss and United are only two points outside the top four.
