But it is believed that Manchester United are hesitant to table a new deal for the English International until the club’s possible takeover matter is sorted. 

Marcus Rashford, nevertheless, has termed the speculations as “nonsense” and he stated that he has been “respectful” to Manchester United throughout negotiation talks. 

Replying to the reports on Twitter, Rashford wrote: “Just before this one starts to do the rounds! It’s complete nonsense.
