Nasser Al-Khelafi has confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain wants to sign Marcus Rashford. But he risks going against the wishes of Manchester United’s head coach, Erik ten Hag.
Nasser Al-Khelafi, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, used an interview with Sky Sports to make it clear that he wants Marcus Rashford to play for his club. The Manchester United striker impresses Nasser Al-Khelafi just like his fellow countryman, Jude Bellingham.
“He is an amazing player. If it’s free, every club will want to sign him. We’re not trying to hide anything, and we’ve already talked about it. But none of the people involved thought it was a good time. Why not? Maybe later in the summer? If he’s a free agent, we could definitely talk to him directly, but we’re not going to do that right now.
Let him focus completely on the World Cup. Al-Khelafi said that if we are still interested in him after that, we might be able to talk to him in January. But Erik ten Hag could make PSG less interested in the 25-year-old England international.
Erik ten Hag needs plans to extend Rashford’s contract
Marcus Rashford’s original contract with Manchester United will end on June 30 2022. With an option in his contract, Erik ten Hag makes sure that the Red Devils can still decide what will happen with their number 10 player. Erik ten Hag says that even if Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, or Bayern Munich try to sign Cristiano Ronaldo’s former teammate, the Red Devils can still control the future of their number 10 player.
In an interview with The Times, the former Ajax coach said, “We’re talking to them about extending the contracts, but we’re in charge because we have an option on all of the players and we’re going to use it.” So, PSG shouldn’t expect to be able to sign Rashford as a free agent in the summer of 2023.
