PSG want to spend £100m in swoop for Manchester United's Rashford

A report from The Independent claims Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a surprise move for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has identified the 22-year-old as "the perfect model of the modern dynamic attacking player," and is willing to spend up to £100 million to land his No. 1 target, despite the coronavirus pandemic potentially causing an unusual transfer market.

The Parisians are not the first European side to show a keen interest in the United academy graduate, with Barcelona making tentative inquiries to the Rashford camp last year, only to instead pursue a move for Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann.

A deal to take Rashford to the French capital will be a tough one to complete, however, with the forward enjoying a great working relationship with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, along with a lucrative contract at Old Trafford that lasts until the summer of 2023.

***: The Premier League announced on Wednesday that the 2020 summer transfer window will open for 10 weeks from July 27 and close on Oct. 5, with a domestic-only window for English Football League (EFL) clubs until Oct. 16.

The league made the announcement after all shareholders agreed on the dates. It added that the transfer window was subject to the approval of FIFA.

The window, which has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent late finish to the season, opens one day after the completion of the top-flight campaign.

***: Borussia Dortmund do not expect Manchester United to make a move for Jadon Sancho before they have qualified for the Champions League as the England winger does not want to play in Europa League next season, German outlet Sport Bild reports.

Dortmund have in the past said there will not be any cut-price sale of Sancho, who is under contract at the Westfalenstadion until 2022. They are holding out for a fee in the region of €120m and have said that from a "sporting perspective" it makes sense that the 20-year-old stays at the club for another season.

United are fifth in the Premier League but, with three games remaining, it could all come down to the final day of the season when they travel to Leicester City. Both sides are on 59 points, but the Foxes have a marginally better goal difference.

Dortmund are reportedly not expecting any progress in the transfer saga before the end of the Premier League season. While Sancho would like to link up with his friend Marcus Rashford, he also feels that he needs Champions League football.
