French giants Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly look to Manchester United to find a replacement for Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Manchester United's Marcus Rashford is reportedly drawing interest from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain for a potential summer move.

The Parisians were previously linked to Rashford in the summer of 2022, but following his impressive performances last season, he secured a new five-year deal at Old Trafford. 

However, this season has seen the 26-year-old struggle to match his previous form, with off-field activities gaining more attention than his on-field contributions.

Rashford to replace Mbappe at PSG

According to a report in the Mirror, PSG are almost resigned to losing star man Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer and recognise this as a good time to try again for the 26-year-old Rashford.

The England international has scored just 4 times in 25 appearances for United this season, and this may be the perfect time for both parties to try something new.

It must be said that Manchester United are said to have no plans to sell Rashford currently but may be tempted if an attractive offers arrives given his form this season.
