Rashford returned to the United first team following football’s restart after being out since January with a back injury. The England international had suffered the injury during a third-round FA Cup replay at Old Trafford where United United progressed into the next round.

Now fit again and hungry to score more goals, the Uk’s The Independent have reported that the Ligue One winners are interested in the 22-year-old, with PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel thinking the English media “don’t realise how good a player Rashford actually is”. The German noted this with the club being reportedly impressed with Rashford’s off-field conduct in recent months, and think he’d be a strong character in the dressing room.

But what would it take to get Rashford to leave United? Reports suggest this would likely cost in excess of £100 million (R2.1 billion), something the French giants would be happy to part with that for a player of this player. It is with this in mind that Tuchel thinks Rashford can complement the club’s two star forwards, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, as they mount an attempt to clinch the Champions League, which resumes in August.

However, it may not all be cut and dry as Rashford remains a happy chap at Old Trafford, which for the United faithful, will be the settling of dust which never dispersed. The forward has netted two goals in his last three games as United continue their battle for a top-four finish in the season’s resumed campaign.

According to reports, Rashford, who only had two years left on his contract at the start of the 2018/19 season, put pen to a new £200 000-a-week last summer, wavering all notions which suggest he may be looking to set up home elsewhere, at least not for the foreseeable future.
