Manchester United star, Marcus Rashford reportedly rejected a whooping £400,000-PER-WEEK contract offer from Ligue 1 giants PSG last summer to stay at his boyhood club with the Qatari owned club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi conceding defeat in pursuit of the winger.

More Details

Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been a long time admirer of the England international and offered him a mouthwatering offer last year when he was nearing the end of his Manchester contract but the player opted to stay at Old Trafford and get his miserable run of form back on track.

Following his rejuvenation since the arrival of Dutch coach Ten Haag, he is set to sign a long term deal with the club as he seeks to commit his career to his boyhood club after a fine run of blistering performances.

The Manchester United star is enjoying the best goalscoring season of his career so far having been integral to Erik ten Hag‘s transformation of the club.

Last season before the appointment of Ten Haag under Ralf Ragnick, Rashford was struggling and PSG tried to capitalize on the fact the England star was out of sorts and entering the final year of his United deal, shortly before a one-year extension was activated.

Rashford was made to think about his future long and hard last summer when the Ligue 1 giants made him an offer of more than £400,000 per week to join them, a report from The Athletic claims.

Had United not activated his one-year extension, Rashford would have been free to talk to clubs from overseas about joining them on a free, but the short-term extension now takes him through to the summer of 2024.

The report also claims United were kept in the loop with any developments from PSG’s talks with Rashford, which were considered above board.

Even after Rashford rejected the substantial contract offer from PSG, the club’s chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi heaped praise on the striker during the World Cup, confirming that he had indeed had talks over a potential move.

The 25-year-old decided against moving to Ligue 1 and stayed at his boyhood club.

He has scored 27 goals and added nine assists in 44 games in all competitions, which will see him ask for a rise on his current £200,000-a-week deal.

Considering his age, it is expected that Rashford’s next contract will be the biggest of his career which will cover his peak years.

However, United’s desire to enforce a wage cap of around £200,000 per week for new contracts – which Sportsmail first reported in January – has made the England star sit tight.
