PSG prepares £75m bid to sign Man United forward Marcus Rashford

French champions PSG are willing to table a £75m bid for Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford who has been a key player for the Red Devils over the past few seasons.

The French giants are ready to reignite their interest in the England international, having initially tried to pursue him in the summer of 2022. Despite offering him a wage worth £ 400,000 per week, PSG was unable to lure the 26-year-old away from Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford recently penned a new £350,000-a-week contract extension with the English giants until the summer of 2028, making him the highest-paid player in the current Manchester United roster.

The attacker remains a top-class performer in the Premier League despite struggling with form and disciplinary issues this season. He has scored just seven goals and bagged six assists across 34 games in all competitions.

United value the highly-coveted forward close to £100m and are willing to listen to offers this summer to adhere to the current Financial Fair Play regulations.

Will Manchester United sanction a departure for Marcus Rashford this summer?

The Red Devils are already lacking in depth and quality in the attacking unit, so letting Rashford leave at the end of this season would be a poor decision. PSG wants to sign the England international to replace Kylian Mbappe who looks set to join Real Madrid in the summer.

According to a new report, United valued the club academy graduate closer to £100m but could be tempted by PSG’s proposal of £75m. Man United is looking to restructure their squad since Jim Ratcliffe aims to embark on a cultural transformation at Old Trafford.

There is no doubt that the £75m offer for Rashford could be tempting for the Red Devils who has not been able to find the back of the net consistently this season. But the 26-year-old would want to continue at his boyhood club and might not be open to a move this summer.
