Marcus Rashford: Paris Saint-Germain unlikely to follow Manchester United’s transfer interest forward | News about Transfer Center
Paris Saint-Germain are keen to sign this month but at this stage they are unlikely to continue their initial interest in Marcus Rashford.
Manchester United feel comfortable about the situation because Rashford is committed to the club and he actually has two years left on his contract – one year plus an option for another year.
Rashford’s agent is said to have held talks with PSG last week.
PSG have signed the likes of Renato Sanches, Vitinha and Hugo Ekitike this summer. They are in talks to sign Fabian Ruiz from Napoli and any further appearances are likely to depend on more players leaving the club.
PSG have declined to comment on reports in France tonight linking them to a move to buy Rashford.
‘Rashford is a long-term target for PSG’
Sky Sports News Chief Correspondent Kaveh Solhekol:
“This is a story first reported by L’Equipe and they say that PSG are looking to sign another striker and that Rashford is their long-term target.
“Some other outlets are saying that players are willing to make the move.
“There’s been a lot of talk about him having a year left on his contract, but United have the option to extend for another year.
“Effectively another year so United don’t need to sell him if they don’t want to.”
Man Utd can afford to let Rashford leave?
Sky Sports News Senior Correspondent Dharmesh Sheth:
“United were under no pressure to sell with the option of extending his contract for another year.
“Given the problems they’re having with their current forward line with injuries and the story surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo, I don’t know if Manchester United are in a position to even think about losing a striker. their other or not, at least Marcus Rashford.”
Rashford to compete with Gakpo?
Manchester United are preparing to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo, valued at £35m.
United manager Erik ten Hag, who is in the same company as Gakpo, is keen to sign the 23-year-old to bolster his attack.
Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia have been signed in defence alongside midfielder Christian Eriksen this summer, but the Dutchman has yet to strengthen his attack.
With Anthony Martial currently injured and concerns over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, United are looking for more options ahead.
They missed out on striker Benjamin Sesko, who will join RB Leipzig next summer, and recently withdrew interest in Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic.
United have spent most of their time pursuing their main striker target Antony, but it has long been reported that Ajax plan to keep him and expect only £70m for that to change.
Gakpo, currently managed by former United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, has emerged as a more permanent solution to the lack of quality options in the forward division.
The Dutch international is a product of PSV’s academy and scored 21 goals in 47 games last season.
‘Gakpo a Ten Hag player knows’
Sky Sports News Senior Correspondent Melissa Reddy on The Transfer Show:
“Manchester United have an offer for PSV winger Cody Gakpo.
“They’ve long said they have alternative attacking goals. No one will be surprised when I say this is a player Erik ten Hag knows, as I said it’s the manager at the helm. their recruitment process.
“Ruud van Nistelrooy joining PSV can help solve the problem. PSV has taken a public position that they want to keep their key players, but in the end they know if a club comes in with great financial resources. , they won’t be able to refuse that.”
