Transfer rumours: Marcus Rashford reportedly touted as Kylian Mbappe replacement

Manchester United’s campaign is back on track in the second half of the season as they aim for a top finish again to qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the second consecutive season. Following an early exit from their European competition and a struggling start to the domestic season, the team has found its rhythm.

Despite Manchester United’s impressive run, a decisive offensive player is struggling to rediscover his former form from last season. This has fueled speculation about a move to PSG, who are searching for a replacement for their departing talisman.

Marcus Rashford is on PSG radar

Marcus Rashford witnessed a sharp decline in his scoring spree, struggling to deliver consistent performances to replicate his heroics from last season, despite being a regular starter. Meanwhile, his fellow attacking partners, Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Hojlund have impressed with their promising outings in United colors.

The Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain, are interested in securing the signature of the English international as a potential replacement for Kylian Mbappé, according to CaughtOffside. Mbappé’s decision to join Real Madrid in the summer is almost certain, after concluding his deal at Parc des Princes.

The Parisians had previously attempted to bring the Englishman to France, but ultimately, Rashford committed his future to Old Trafford by signing a contract extension until 2028. Alongside him, AC Milan’s Portuguese star, Rafael Leão is also among the top targets to replace Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe’s potential departure from the French club to pursue his long-awaited and much-anticipated move to Santiago Bernabéu is becoming more likely. After declining multiple attempts to sign a new contract and even refusing an offer despite it being worth three times more than Real Madrid’s bid.

Marcus Rashford’s performance so far this season

Currently, Marcus Rashford is struggling to reignite his goal-scoring prowess to bolster his team’s attack and has scored only 5 goals and provided 6 assists in the 28 games he has played for United across all competitions this campaign. 

Therefore, doubts and questions about his spot on the team are mounting. Despite this, Manchester United’s boss, Erik ten Hag is backing him to perform better.

Last season, the 26-year-old finished the campaign as Manchester United’s top scorer, netting 30 goals across all competitions, propelling them to a top-four finish with his stunning 17-goal campaign in the Premier League and emerging as a standout player under Erik ten Hag.
