Rashford has looked close to his best self this season, as he has scored eight goals and assisted three more in 19 appearances in all competitions.

He has done even better on the biggest stage as he has scored three times for England at the World Cup in Qatar.

This form has seen him attract interest from around Europe, with Al-Khelaifi admitting that he is an amazing player.

He said: "He’s another player who’s amazing and for free? To have Rashford for free, every club will run after him.

"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."

The talk over Rashford's future will not be welcome by Manchester United.

The Red Devils are keen to keep hold of their former youth academy star and they do have the option to trigger a 12-month extension to his current £200,000-a-week contract.

PSG could view Rashford as a replacement for Lionel Messi, who is also out of contract at the end of the season.
