Marcus Rashford's future will, for now, be at Manchester United as Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly not interested in signing him.

Reports earlier this year claimed that the French giants could look to pry the local talent away from his boyhood club. PSG are looking to sign a replacement for Kylian Mbappe, who is expected to join Real Madrid when his contract expires.

PSG failed to lure Rashford to Paris last summer and he subsequently signed a lucrative new deal. But rumours kicked up a gear in January after the 26-year-old missed United's 4-2 win over Newport County in the fourth round of the FA Cup due to illness, having being spotted in a Belfast nightclub earlier that week.

But according to The Sun, PSG have never been interested in signing the United star. It is also said that given his struggles on and off the pitch this campaign, they have given it 'no consideration at all.'

Rashford has struggled to make a real impact for Erik ten Hag's team and match his sizzling form of last season. He has 13 goal contributions in 39 games in all competitions.

Elsewhere, Caught Offside add that United have held 'concrete talks' to sign Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong as Aaron Wan-Bissaka looks likely to leave this summer. The 26-year-old is approaching the final 12 months of his contract and has been linked with a move to Inter Milan.

Frimpong has been in fine form during Leverkusen's remarkable season which has seen them win the Bundesliga title for the first time in the club's history. He has been a vital part of how the German club play, helping link defence and attack in impressive fashion.

Liverpool are also admirers of the defender and Frimpong has opened the door to joining the Reds in the past. Speaking to Soccer News via Ziggo Sport, he said: "Liverpool? Great club, with history. That would be great. Who knows what the future will bring."
