Revealed: Manchester United’s stance on Rashford future amid confirmed PSG interest

PSG have confirmed they are interested in signing Marcus Rashford.


Marcus Rashford has a rough couple of seasons under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

However, since Erik ten Hag took the reins, we have seen a much more positive Rashford.

The 25-year-old has scored eight and assisted three in 18 games for Manchester United this season.

His improved form has also earned Rashford an England call-up for the Qatar World Cup where he has so far bagged three goals from four appearances, only one of which came as a starter.

However, Rashford’s future in Manchester is somewhat up in their air, with just 18 months left on his deal if United opt to trigger a one-year extension.

Now though, a fresh update on the Englishman’s future has been provided.

It is reported that United chiefs believe they will get Rashford to sign a new contract. They will first activate the one-year clause in his current deal to ensure he will not be able to leave on a free transfer next summer.

Despite this PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi suggested this week that he will look to speak to Rashford’s representatives in January if a free transfer was a possibility.

Al-Khelaifi told Sky Sports: “He’s another player that is really amazing. And for free? To have Rashford for free, every club would run after him, definitely.

“We’re not hiding it, we spoke before and… interest. But the moment was not a good moment for both sides. Maybe, summer, why not?

“Today if he’s a free agent of course we can talk to him directly but we are not going to talk to him now. Let him focus on the World Cup. Then after in January, hopefully, if we’re interested we will talk to him.”
