Chelsea and Manchester United offer new deals to starlets

Jordan Rashford and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will not leave Manchester United and Chelsea, respectively, anytime soon, as the former is expected to be handed an improved deal and the latter has already signed his.

Loftus-Cheek, who has made 13 appearances for the Blues so far, signed a new contract at Stamford Bridge which will keep him at the club until 2021, according to Sky Sports.

The 20-year-old made his debut in a Champions League encounter against Sporting Lisbon in December 2014 and enjoyed his first taste of Premier League action a month later, coming on as a substitute in a 1-1 draw against Manchester City.

In February 2015 he was brought into the first-team squad on a permanent basis and made his first start in a home match against Liverpool, scoring his first Chelsea goal in a FA Cup win over Scunthorpe United in January.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are ready to start negotiations with striker Marcus Rashford over a new contract, according to the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old scored four goals in his first two professional games with United (against Midtjylland and Arsenal) and is currently earning just £1,500 per week on a deal that expires in 2017. However, United are ready to bump up his wages to £15,000 per week.
