Manchester United slap massive £120m price-tag on star amid European interest

The Red Devils are already in contract discussions with the attacker

Manchester United have reportedly slapped a massive £120m price tag on the head of in-form star Marcus Rashford as they look to ward off interest from Europe’s elite clubs, according to reports.

Rashford has been arguably the most in-form attacker since the World Cup ended across Europe, with the 26-year-old firing in 8 goals in nine Premier League games, as well as registering an assist.

In fact, since the break, he has only not contributed a goal or an assist in two games across all competitions, with 19 goal contributions in 16 games across that period.

The idea of Manchester United selling their star man, who is almost singlehandedly firing them upwards this season, would be laughable therefore, if not for his contract situation.

As it stands, the 26-year-old is out of contract in 2024, and contract negotiations are ongoing, though they have shown no sign of a breakthrough at present.

And, according to the Daily Star, both Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are keen on signing the star, with both sides on the hunt for additional firepower this summer.

With Real Madrid boasting Vinicius Jr on the left flank, it is tricky to see where Marcus Rashford fits in for Los Blancos unless they are keen to trial him in a central role, where he has been less effective for the Red Devils.

PSG, meanwhile, have been long-term admirers of the Englishman, but only in the case that Kylian Mbappe were to depart the Parc des Princes, which seems unlikely this summer.
