August 12, ESPN Manchester reporter Rob Dawson followed up and reported on Rashford
In Ford’s case, sources told ESPN that despite Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in Rashford, he will not leave Manchester United this summer.
Last week, Rashford’s agent met with Paris Saint-Germain executives in Paris to discuss possible transfer matters, and then Manchester United issued a hand-off warning.
ESPN revealed that Paris hopes to sign a striker before the transfer window closes, and Rashford is one of their top targets.
But sources have told ESPN that United have no intention of negotiating or seeing offers full of entertainment (or entertaining bids.)
Sources have told ESPN that United want to sign the England striker to a new contract.
According to sources, Rashford and his agent were aware of their interest as early as January 2021, when Pochettino took over as PSG boss.
Paris Saint-Germain have indicated they are willing to give Rashford a substantial wage increase but are yet to hold talks with United over a potential transfer fee.
Sources have told ESPN that the Ligue 1 champions value Rashford at around £60m, while Manchester United could double that to more than £120m.
