Paris Saint-Germain could return for Marcus Rashford in the summer amid ongoing disciplinary issues at Manchester United, according to reports.

Rashford missed Sunday's 4-2 FA Cup win over Newport County on Sunday and was fined £650,000 - equivalent to two weeks wages - after missing Friday's training session through illness. The 26-year-old was spotted at a nightclub in Belfast the prior night and ManchesterWorld understands the club were misled over his whereabouts.

Despite recent issues and poor form, United have no plans to sell Rashford this summer but The i reports of interest coming from PSG. The French side have long been keen on a move for the forward and could reignite interest in a bid to lure him away from Old Trafford.

PSG tried to sign Rashford last summer, following the best individual season for the forward that brought 30 goals across all competitions. But he decided to stay in Manchester and penned a new five-year deal in July.

The likely departure of Kylian Mbappe in the summer could push the Ligue 1 side into moving for Rashford, with the space on the left-wing set to open up. Mbappe's contract in Paris expires in the summer and he is widely expected to join Real Madrid on a free transfer.

Rashford was at Carrington alongside agent and brother, Dwaine Maynard, on Monday for talks with Sir Dave Brailsford, who has been ever-present around the club since confirmation of Sir Jim Ratcliffe's investment on Christmas Eve. The INEOS director of sport has been carrying out an audit of the club and is said to have joined sporting director John Murtough in the dressing room at Newport County to reiterate the standards expected.

Manager Erik ten Hag recently insisted the 'internal matter' had been dealt with and Rashford is expected to be part of the travelling squad for Thursday's Premier League trip to Wolves.
