Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of French giants Paris Saint-Germain, has on Thursday confirmed the club’s interest in a key member of the attacking ranks at Manchester United.
The player in question? Marcus Rashford.
Wide-man Rashford has of course enjoyed something of a resurgence over the early months of the new campaign.
Afforded a new lease of life by boss Erik ten Hag, the versatile attacker has re-established himself as one of the first names on the scoresheet at Old Trafford.
All told, in 18 appearances across all competitions, Rashford has directly contributed to a none-too-shabby 11 goals.
In turn, it has come as little surprise to hear of those in a position of power on the red half of Manchester working towards tying the club’s youth product down to fresh terms.
Rashford’s current contract is due to expire in the summer of 2023, alerting rival clubs from across the continent to his potentially imminent availability.
And now, as alluded to above, one such outfit have made crystal clear their interest in luring the 25-year-old away from his home country.
Speaking to the media on Thursday, Nasser Al-Khelaifi was not at all shy in admitting that Rashford - hotly tipped for a move to the French capital during the summer - is very much on the wishlist of the board at the Parc des Princes.
Not only that, but the PSG chief too went on to confirm that the two parties ‘have spoken before’.
