The fee Man Utd could demand for Marcus Rashford if PSG launch bid to sign striker

The fee Man Utd could demand for Marcus Rashford if PSG launch bid to sign striker

Rashford could leave United.

Manchester United could demand a record fee for a British player if Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Marcus Rashford this summer.

For a long time after he burst onto the scene as an 18-year-old in 2016, Rashford was the first name on United's team sheet, no matter which manager was sat in the dugout.

However, after enjoying a decent campaign in 2022/23, this season the England striker has found the back of the net just four times in 20 Premier League outings.

This week the 26-year-old made headlines for the wrong reasons, when Erik ten Hag left him out of his squad for the 4-2 FA Cup win against Newport County on Sunday after reports claimed Rashford was out partying in Belfast on Thursday and missed training on Friday.

On Monday night United released as statement saying “Marcus has taken responsibility for his actions. This has been dealt with as an internal disciplinary matter, which is now closed”, although it's not clear if Rashford received any further punishment.

Yet despite his on and off-field issues, Rashford is still attracting interest from other top clubs around Europe.

Paris Saint-Germain were linked with the 26-year-old last year, with United slapping a £120 million on their academy graduate.

Rashford finished the season with 30 goals and 11 assists in 56 games in all competitions, and over the summer he signed a new five-year-contract worth a reported £325,000 a week.

With over four years left on his deal, it might take an offer of more than United's initial £120 million asking price to force the Premier League giants into a sale.

Arsenal made Declan Rice the most expensive British player of all time when they paid West Ham £105 million for his services last summer, and even if the fee Real Madrid paid for Jude Bellingham rises to £114 million through add-ons, Rashford could easily break the record.

However, according to The CIES Football Observatory, Rashford's value has plummeted to €100 million (£86m) over the six months due to his nose-dive in form.

New contract or not, Rashford's future looks set to dominate the back pages for the remainder of the season and this summer.
