Manchester United believe Marcus Rashford has a value ‘in excess’ of £120 million, which is double Paris Saint-Germain’s valuation of the player, according to reports.
The 24-year-old forward, who has one year left on his current deal at Old Trafford, has been earmarked as a potential summer signing by the French club.
L’Equipe claim Rashford’s representatives have already opened talks with PSG, while French journalist Julien Laurens says the United academy product is “keen” for a new challenge.
That being said, no discussions have taken place between PSG and Manchester United over a deal.
In fact, United have no intention of kickstarting negotiations in the future and are keen to tie Rashford into a new contract, despite his lack of form in recent months.
That’s according to ESPN, who suggest the Ligue 1 champions are willing to hand Rashford a significant pay rise but again, no contact has yet been made between both clubs.
That same report also mentions Rashford’s valuation. PSG think the player is worth around £60 million in the current market, while Manchester United value him at double that amount.
Former Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock thinks the 24-year-old striker will recapture his form of old in the coming months.
“He has been a little bit subdued in the past 12 months but I think Rashford will get a new lease of life under Erik ten Hag, especially if Ronaldo does leave,” Warnock told Sporbible.
