Marcus Rashford‘s contract with Manchester United ends in June 2024 and PSG wants to take advantage of it to sign him this summer. But the English club is not willing to give up so easily.
In search of a striker who can play as a target man to support Kylian Mbappé, Paris Saint-Germain has been monitoring Marcus Rashford‘s situation for several months. Before the World Cup in Qatar, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the president of the Parisian club, openly confirmed his interest in the Manchester United forward.
According to several reliable sources, the reigning French champions are ready to offer a huge salary to Rashford to convince him to move to the French capital, especially if Neymar or Lionel Messi leaves at the end of the current season. However, the management of Manchester United has no intention of letting their English star go.

Indeed, according to CBS Sports, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano announced on Tuesday that the leaders of Manchester United are determined to do everything possible to convince Marcus Rashford to sign a new contract. The English international has been in stunning form since his return from the World Cup in Qatar, and his coach Erik ten Hag continues to put pressure on his leaders to extend his contract.
“The new contract for Rashford is a priority. We are working on it, we are working hard internally. We have to keep Marcus, of course. On the first day of our meeting, I told him: I want to see your smile! He is in a happy place now,” said the Dutch coach a few weeks ago. Now it remains to be seen whether PSG and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi will succeed in convincing Rashford to leave his home club for Ligue 1.
