    Manchester United superstar Marcus Rashford reportedly turned down a £400,000 a week deal from Paris Saint-Germain.

    The England international was heavily linked with a move to the French giants after a turbulent campaign at Old Trafford last year. However, under the tutelage of Erik ten Hag, Rashford has been one of the best performing forwards in the world this year.

    After a campaign where he only mustered five goals and two assists, he has already found the net on 27 occasions and created nine goals in just 44 appearances this season. However, he could have been producing those numbers in the French capital.

    According to the Athletic, PSG were willing to stump up £400,000 per week to sway Rashford from Old Trafford. However, the move did not go through as Rashford decided to stay at the club he has been at since he was a little boy.

    PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi also confirmed the interest and even said they had spoken with Rashford’s representatives that summer. He even insinuated they may make another swoop for Rashford when his contract expires in the summer of 2024.

    "He’s another player who’s amazing and for free? To have Rashford for free, every club will run after him,” Al-Khelaifi said before the World Cup. "Definitely, we spoke before and interest, but the moment was not a good moment for both sides.

    "Maybe summer, why not? If he is a free agent, we can talk to him directly. But we are not going to talk to him now and let him focus on the World Cup.

    "In January, hopefully, we would be interested in talking to him." United are trying to get Rashford tied down to a new contract and are hoping to trigger a 12-month contract extension to his current £200,000-a-week contract.

    However, with United supposedly keen to impose a salary cap to limit wages to between £200,000 and £300,000 per week, negotiations are believed to have stalled.
