The deal is worth a reported £200,000 a week.
The Wythenshawe-born Academy product, 21, has been at the club since the age of seven and made his debut in the Europa League under Louis van Gaal against FC Midtjylland in February 2016.
Rashford took full advantage of a United injury crisis, making his debut on February 26, 2016 after Anthony Martial was injured in the warm-up.
Rashford went on to score twice in a 5-1 win over the Danish side, announcing his arrival on the United scene, and went on to make 170 appearances for the club, scoring 45 goals in all competitions.
He also won 32 caps for England, scoring 7 goals.
Rashford said: “Manchester United has been everything in my life since I arrived here at the age of seven.
“This club has shaped me, both as a player and as a person, so it is such a privilege every time I get the opportunity to wear the shirt.
“I want to thank Ole and his staff for everything they have done for me.
“They are the perfect group of coaches to learn from as I continue my development and look to push on to the next level.
“I will be giving everything I have to help get this club back to where it belongs and deliver the success that our fans deserve.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: “Marcus is one of the most talented English players of his generation.
“He is an outstanding player; blessed with natural pace and energy.
“Marcus is a shining example of the talent that our Academy produces and his upbringing means that he truly understands what it means to play for Manchester United.
“Despite being only 21 years old, Marcus already has great experience.
“He has a fantastic future ahead of him with the club and I am delighted that he has signed a new contract.“
