Manchester United told PSG stance on Marcus Rashford transfer amid topsy turvy form

PSG no longer keen on Marcus Rashford

As reported by Manchester Evening News, Paris-Saint Germain are not looking to sign Marcus Rashford this summer.

The Ligue 1 champions have been heavily linked with the Englishman over the past couple of seasons, looking at him as a possible replacement for the outgoing Kylian Mbappé.

Rashford’s 30-goal 2022/23 season heated up talks over a move last summer, but they have cooled down as the 26-year-old’s numbers have returned to ground this season.

The England international, like his team, has struggled to build on his performances from last year and is currently taking heat for his showings on the pitch from the Old Trafford faithful.

Up next for Rashford and Co. is the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City at Wembley.

Man United need to make a call

Regardless of whether PSG come for Rashford in the summer, Man United have a call to make on their homegrown boy.

Having an academy graduate in the squad, especially one of Rashford’s reputation, has been a crucial pillar of what defines Man United as an institution for generations. Yet, his performances and the club’s ambitions do not seem to match any longer. Rashford, now 26, is no longer a young prospect and is still one of the highest-paid players in the league despite underwhelming results.

With a new sporting ownership in place, United enter a new era next season. Rashford may still be a part of it, but he needs to know that his local background cannot insulate him from performance-based consequences forever.

All things considered, if he becomes a detriment to United’s long-term goals, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to cash in on the England international.
