Paris Saint Germain are set to renew their interest once more in Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford as they look to add yet more firepower to their ranks.
The French champions, who already boast one of the best front three’s in world football with Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar, have been interested in Rashford for some time, and could strike should he become a free agent.
The Manchester United man’s contract at Old Trafford is up in 2023 as it stands, though there is a 12-month extension that can be triggered by the club. So far, he has been a standout star for Erik ten Hag’s new-look side, grabbing four goals and two assists in 14 Premier League games this campaign.
And, as per CBS Sports transfer expert Ben Jacobs, Rashford to Paris Saint Germain remains very much on.
“They’re still very much in the mix and hoping for Rashford,” Jacobs said.
“I think they feel that they’re being a bit used over Rashford by the player’s side. The intent is to get the player to sign a new Manchester United deal, which is his preference. But PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is certainly not ruling Rashford out. He’s had a great World Cup.”
Quizzed on a potential move for Rashford, Al-Khelaifi was quick to continue the platitudes for the Englishman.
‘Again, he is another player that is really amazing and for free, to have Rashford for free, every club would run after him, definitely’, he told Sky Sports.
“Definitely, there is no hiding it, we spoke before on the interest but the moment was not a good moment for both sides.”
“Maybe, summer why not? But today if he is a free agent we can talk to him directly but we are not going to talk to him now”.
Rashford has continued to impress on the international stage, scoring three times in England’s run to the World Cup quarter-final despite just one start so far this tournament.
