Marcus Rashford turned down an eye-watering £400,000-a-week offer from PSG last summer, according to The Athletic via Daily Mail.
Even after Rashford rejected the substantial contract offer from PSG, the club’s chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi still heaped praise on the striker during the World Cup, confirming that he had indeed had talks over a potential move.
“We’re not hiding it, we spoke before. But the moment was not a good moment for both sides,” Al-Khelaifi told Sky Sports before United triggered Rashford’s one-year extension.
“Today, if he’s a free agent of course we can talk to him directly, but we are not going to talk to him now. Let him focus on the World Cup. Then, in January, hopefully, if we’re interested we will talk to him.”
Rashford has recovered from his poor form last season to score 27 goals and provide nine assists in 44 games in all competitions for Manchester United this season.
Rashford will have just one year left on his £200,000-a-week contract at the end of the season.
