President of Paris Saint-Germain Nasser Al-Khelaifi claims the team will try to sign Marcus Rashford, a star player for Manchester United, on a free transfer in January.
The French club PSG has long admired Rashford, and during the summer they spoke with the player’s representatives about relocating to Paris.
The 25-year-future old’s at Old Trafford were in doubt after a disappointing 2021–22 campaign.
Since then, under Erik ten Hag, the academy graduate has had a fantastic turnaround in form, scoring eight goals and reclaiming his spot in the England squad.
Rashford’s current deal with United is set to expire in the summer of 2023, but the club has the option to extend it by an additional year.
Although PSG is prepared to start talks with the player should that extension not be activated, foreign clubs are free to discuss terms with him.
Al-Khelaifi told Sky Sports that Rashford is yet another incredible free agent, and if he were a paid player, every club would be vying for his services. This confirms PSG’s prior attempts to sign the United star.
There is no denying it; we previously discussed our interests, but the timing wasn’t ideal for either party.
Maybe, why not in the summer? But today, if he were a free agent, we could speak with him directly; however, we won’t.
Let him concentrate on the World Cup, and we’ll hopefully talk to him in January.
According to recent reports, United is getting ready to extend Rashford’s contract on new terms.
He reiterated his desire to stay in Manchester and play for his boyhood club in response to PSG’s interest in the summer.
In August, Rashford stated to Sky Sports that he is fully committed. That is a non-negotiable for him.
His commitment to training and the games remains the only thing that hasn’t changed. Whatever the circumstance, he believes he must give everything he has for himself, his friends, family, and fans.
Rashford has had a standout World Cup in Qatar. He scored against Iran and added two more goals against Wales in the final group game.
He hopes to reclaim his spot in the starting XI for Saturday’s quarterfinal matchup against France after starting from the bench in the previous 16 victories over Senegal.
