Manchester United would reportedly want £100m for Marcus Rashford this summer amid suggestions of interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United would reportedly want £100m for Marcus Rashford amid suggestions that the forward could leave Old Trafford during this summer's transfer window.

The 26-year-old was in outstanding form for the Red Devils during the 2022-23 campaign, scoring 30 goals and registering 10 assists in 56 appearances in all competitions.

Rashford penned a new long-term deal at Old Trafford last summer, but he has struggled this season, only managing eight goals and five assists in 39 appearances.

The forward again found it difficult to make his mark in Man United's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

There has been speculation surrounding his future in recent weeks, with PSG believed to have a long-standing interest in the Red Devils academy product, who has not netted in the Premier League since March 9.

Last month, it was reported that PSG were lining up a £75m offer for Rashford, with the French champions thought to view him as a possible replacement for Kylian Mbappe.

The capital giants were heavily linked with his signature in the summer of 2022, but the forward stayed at Old Trafford and starred during Erik ten Hag's first season at the helm.

According to The Sun, talk of interest from PSG is wide of the mark, with Luis Enrique's side making it clear that they have no interest in pursuing a deal in the upcoming market.

PSG allegedly believe that Rashford's camp used the speculation surrounding a possible switch to Paris in order to improve the terms of the forward's contract offer last year.

A separate report in The Mirror claims that Man United would not entertain offers of under £100m for the Englishman, so he is set to remain in Manchester despite the ongoing transfer talk.

Rashford has cut a frustrated figure this season

There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a disappointing campaign for Rashford considering his quality, with the attacker struggling to make his mark for long spells of the season.

Off-the-field issues have also been present, with the Red Devils academy product causing controversy earlier this year when he visited a nightclub in Dublin on two separate evenings and then called in sick for training before his side's FA Cup game with Newport County.

Rashford's relationship with head coach Ten Hag is believed to have become strained, but the latter could be leaving this summer, with a change of manager being considered by the club's new minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

There have been claims that Rashford needs a change of scenery, but if PSG are not interested, it is difficult to see where he would go, having penned a new deal at Old Trafford until June 2028 just last year.

Barcelona cannot afford him, while Real Madrid are moving for Mbappe, and it seems almost certain that he will still be at Man United beyond the end of this summer's transfer window.
