Under contract with Manchester United until June 2024, Marcus Rashford is one of the players PSG is courting with a vision next summer.
During the World Cup in Qatar, Nasser Al-Khelaifi spilled the beans on Sehla Paris Saint-Germain to Marcus Rashford. At the time, the England international had had his contract with Manchester United expire in June 2023, and was therefore potentially recruitable for €0 at the end of the season. The Red Devils – unfortunately for PSG – have activated a clause to automatically extend the England international’s contract for an additional year, that is, until June 2024. This has clearly not discouraged the Parisian leaders because according to the English press, PSG is still in the running to welcome Marcus. Rashford next season. And there is hope for Paris because, despite his extension, the England striker is in negotiations with Manchester United to increase his salary. But for now, nothing says an agreement will be reached.
Rashford victim of Manchester United salary cap?
According to information from the Daily Mail, Manchester United’s leaders have implemented what they call internally the “Ronaldo Rule”. It is in fact a salary cap introduced at Manchester United following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, whose XXL salary affected the club’s finances. Aware of the large salary distribution to the Portuguese international, Manchester United is now refusing to offer more than 300,000 euros per week to the player, while CR7 received more than this amount. Therefore, it is already certain that the Red Devils will not offer Marcus Rashford a salary equivalent to the one that PSG would be able to offer him. Indirectly, he could push Cristiano Ronaldo towards the French capital as one of the great English talents of his generation, a player who is deeply courted by Luis Campos, who dreams of putting a hook on Marcus Rashford next summer. The situation of the Mancunian striker will be closely monitored and there is no doubt that Paris Saint-Germain will be very attentive to this issue by next summer, even Nasser Al-Khelaifi confirmed during the World Cup that he adored the MU player.
