Wilkins urges Manchester United be careful with Rashford contract

Former Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins says they must be careful with Marcus Rashford’s new deal.

Wilkins says the club should keep his feet on the ground with an appearance-based contract.

“Obviously you have to give him a new contract because he looks a good prospect,” the former United midfielder told Sky Sports News HQ.

 “But I’d like to see it based on incentive.

“By all means up his basic wage, but then give him very good appearance money so he still has that drive to keep maintaining that level.”

“Once he sees that first wage package with that nice appearance money he’ll want a little bit more as well.” 

“Obviously there’s negotiation to be had there, but to look after him and keep his enthusiasm for the game, get that incentive in there as well.”
