Manchester United may have to break the weekly wage cap to keep Marcus Rashford.
On the 28th, Britain’s ‘The Athletic’ said, “There were rumors that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) offered more than £400,000 a week (about 643 million won) to sign Rashford last summer. And even now, there is a rumor about Rashford. Interest remains. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi did not hide his interest in Rashford at the end of last year.”
Rashford is from Manchester 메이저사이트United Youth and has gradually revealed his presence since the 2015-16 season. Consistently played in more than 30 English Premier League (EPL) games and continued to record double-digit goals. However, he underwent shoulder surgery before last season, and finished the season with poorer grades than before.
As a result, the possibility of a transfer was raised last summer. The destination was PSG. However, the actual transfer did not happen. The reason Rashford was originally wanted was to replace Kylian Mbappe in case he left for Real Madrid. However, as Mbappe remained, he did not have to look for a replacement.
Rashford, who remained at Manchester United, is performing outstandingly under manager Eric Ten Hag. It washed away all the regrets of his last season. Rashford, who recorded 11 goals and 9 assists in 25 EPL games (13 starts, 12 substitutes) last season, is currently posting 14 goals and 3 assists in 26 games (24 starts, 2 substitutes) in the league. Especially after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, his momentum is great.
Rumors spread that PSG still wanted Rashford. In line with this, Britain’s ‘Give Me Sports’ said, “Man United may have to protect Rashford even if it breaks the ‘Ronaldo Rule’ that sets the salary cap for first-team players at 200,000 pounds (about 321 million won).”
When Ronaldo returned to Manchester United ahead of last season, he received more than £400,000 a week. However, rumor has it that Ten Haag wants to cap players’ salaries at £200,000 in order to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules. Rashford is currently being paid £200,000. Exactly at the upper limit.
However, ‘Give Me Sports’ said, “Considering Rashford’s performance, he will be offered a new contract that exceeds the £200,000 cap. There is no choice but to break the so-called ‘Ronaldo Rule’.” . Rashford is currently contracted with Manchester United until the summer of 2024, having exercised an option for a one-year extension in December of last year.
