And yet, Sky Sports (via the Daily Star) go with “Manchester United fear they will be forced to sell Marcus Rashford next summer.”
*insert eye roll emoji here*

Good job Ed Woodward has had a 50 foot high wall built around his property then, and extended his 'safe-room' so it can comfortably accommodate his family for a week ....

Rashford to PSG doesn't make sense unless Mbappe & Neymar were leaving because they both want to play off the left.

Would Saint Marcus take the Qatar cash?

I think there is a possibilty he won't sign a new contract. But I kind of disagree on PSG, why go to PSG if Mbappe is leaving, surely you want to play with the best.

Whatever happens he won't leave for free this summer Utd will activate the option clause in his deal to extend to 2024. Doesn't mean he won't be sold this summer though if he decides he wants to leave and take on a fresh challenge.

A conversation over his plans certainly needs to be had once he's back from the world cup Utd can't afford to lose him on a free.

I think it all depends on what Rashford wants does he want to stick around at Utd and try to put them back on top in England or does he think he can achieve more at PSG where league titles are almost guaranteed and there's a reasonable shot at the champions league every season. To be honest it's really hard to see Utd getting back on top any time soon but it at least feels with ETH in charge we've got a man who might be able to get us in the fight if he's given enough time.

Whatever decision he makes he'll make a load of money but Utd so far have looked after him very well his current contract isn't to shabby but Sancho who he's currently keeping out of the side is reported to be on £350k a week. So that is the sort of number I expect Rashford to be asking for if he was to enter talks for a new deal and I'm not sure he's worth that sort of money.

Is he admitting to tapping Rashford up, to encourage him to run-down his contract knowing UEFA/FIFA will do nothing, and if Rashford is in the last year of his contact, PSG can legally speak to Rashford in January anyway, so why wait till the Summer??

Just read something, our max wage structure goes to 300 grand (not the 200 posted on an article on here)

And that is what we are offering him.

Not sure how you can introduce a max wage structure of £300k when you have 3 players who reportedly earn more than that. De Gea, Sancho, Varane. The De Gea one is likely to come down if he agrees a new deal but the other two remain an issue and Casemiro is reportedly on £300k.

Sancho is rumoured to be on £350k a week Utd are going to find it very hard to get Rashford to accept anything less than parity with Sancho.

Utd could probably be wise to wait until his current hot streak is over before calling a meeting to discuss a new contract, lets see what he asks for when he's gone 6 or 7 games without a goal.

Doubt it'll be sorted until the new owners are in, sounds like the only contract being discussed currently is De Gea as the clock is ticking on that one.

I expect all other talks are on pause until the takeover is complete.

If I was Rashford I wouldn't be signing anything until the new owners are in either.

The PSG link is a funny one as PSG already have the problem of neymar and mbappe both wanting to play from the left, how do you fit another one into that spot?

Still leaves them with Neymar and he's not going anywhere, his contract runs to at least 2025 with the options to extend it could reach 2027.

Mbappe has a contract until 2025 so my guess is he's staying until at least 2024 and then they might sell although they're a club where money means nothing they could allow him to go for nothing in 2025.

They're still trying to renew Messi to 2025 as well.

Rashford has to be a bit careful he's been very open about his political stuff how will that look if he takes the Qatar money?

I think Barca will come in if he was available as they are missing a left sided attacking player, maybe they can sell off more of the family fortune to find £100m for him.

Trophies.

I can't see him at PSG, Barca or Madrid I can.

Barca have no money, Madrid have other priorities. He'll sign

Madrid have Vinicious Jnr so I don't see that being an option for him, their next big purchase will be a Benzema replacement I guess.

Barca I think would be very interested in him if he wanted to make a move abroad and test himself elsewhere.

PSG I don't think they have space for him.
