Paris Saint-Germain want to make Marcus Rashford one of the highest-paid footballers in the world
| Last updated
Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to test Marcus Rashford's resolve and offer the Manchester United forward a deal which will make him one of the best-paid footballers in the world.
The forward has one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford, although United will exercise the option to extend that until 2024.
There is still interest from the Ligue 1 giants. Per the Mirror, PSG are putting together a financial package to tempt Rashford abroad.
PSG will offer the 25-year-old a contract which will equal an astonishing £850,000 per week to fend off potential suitors.
Rashford's contract being close to expiry means there'd be a smaller fee attached the the transfer, hence the higher wages.
Among the other teams interested in Rashford are Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. Bundesliga champions Bayern have a strict wage structure meaning they're unlikely to match that number.
Real Madrid would be willing to go up to £500,000 per week after failing to sign Kylian Mbappe last summer. Karim Benzema remains their only real option upfront, although a Ballon d'Or winner in your ranks is nothing to turn your nose up at.
Rashford scored three times at the World Cup for England, who were eliminated from the competition by France on Saturday evening.
United manager Erik ten Hag recently confirmed the club are looking to tie Rashford and full-back Diogo Dalot down to new contracts.
Both have kicked on under ten Hag, especially Dalot, who is essentially the only right-back ten Hag trusts. Aaron Wan-Bissaka has played four minutes of Premier League football this term.
"He has to make a decision," Ten Hag said in response to PSG's reported interest in Rashford.
"We can only show him that this is the best club to be in. It has to do with the culture of the club, but also in the way we are working together. It has to do with the way we play and the way we train. Are we offering the right environment to progress further?"
"Marcus was one from the start who came with a smile to Carrington and left with a smile.
"From the first moment, it was a joy to work with him. I believe he is happy."
