PSG test Rashford's resolve with huge contract to sign Man Utd star
- World Soccer Today -
The French giants are reportedly preparing new transfer offers for Manchester United and England ace Marcus Rashford as his Red Devils contract expires in the summer
Paris Saint-Germain Willing to make Marcus Rashford one of the highest paid players on the planet beat Manchester United to Bayern Munich and Real Betis to sign him.
Paris Saint-Germain are understood to be preparing a deal worth up to £850,000-a-week for the 25-year-old, who expires at Manchester United in the summer and will be free to move overseas from next month. Negotiate.
That means United will have to offer their England star a similar weekly wage if they want him to stay at Old Trafford, having been at the club since he was a boy.
Local lad Rashford had had a tough couple of seasons before that, not least under Ralf Rangnick.
But now there is a view that he returned from injury too early and should take longer to recover.
That feeling has intensified this season and now he's fit and enjoying his football again under Erik 10 Hag.
All of that has translated to his performances on the pitch at United, and in Gareth Southgate's Three Lions World Cup.
HAVE YOUR SAY! Could a move to Paris Saint-Germain be an ideal new chapter for Rashford? comment below
German giants Bayern have been keeping tabs on Rashford's situation, but the stats under discussion could put them off.
Betis are also struggling to come close to Paris Saint-Germain's offer, with sources suggesting the La Liga side could fetch around £500,000-a-week.
That apparently leaves super-rich Paris Saint-Germain, his suitors outside of Manchester United, in the box seat.
A player of Rashford's age, ability and experience is worth around £70m, and he has more time to work on his contract, which is a huge saving for any buying club.
With such a transfer fee attached, he would also receive around £350,000-a-week wages - meaning a four-year total of around £140m for any buying club to sign him from Manchester United.
However, the fact that it's free means that teams can offer players more lucrative weekly salaries.
If he does do business in Paris, they know his value will skyrocket as his prime years are yet to come.
