Paris Saint-Germain have made contact with Marcus Rashford over a move this summer, L’Equipe report.

The report states PSG have made an approach to Rashford’s representatives, after new manager Christophe Galtier expressed a desire to sign a new forward by the end of the transfer window.

Rashford started Manchester United’s opening game of the season against Brighton, regaining his place in the team, although failed to score.

The forward’s future is uncertain, with his current contract set to expire in 2023.

Paris Saint-Germain contact Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford has not scored a competitive goal in almost seven months. His last one came at home to West Ham in January.

He only scored five goals last season, although has shown some promising signs with three pre-season strikes.

United are already light on attackers, so it is very unlikely the club allow Rashford to leave this summer. Even if a big offer came in.

The club have an option to extend his contract to 2024, which can be triggered anytime. This will strengthen United’s negotiating position.

Speaking of which, there is a very good chance that these talks could be a ploy from Rashford’s end to strengthen his own attempts to secure a long term contract at Old Trafford.

Despite all this, there would be a mixed response from supporters if Rashford were allowed to leave. While it would weaken Manchester United in the short-term, he is no longer viewed as irreplaceable.

He lost his place in the England and Manchester United team at the end of last season due to poor form, with his effort and body language criticised by pundits and supporters.

A move to PSG may appeal to Rashford as a change of environment and fresh start in a weaker league for a stronger team may enhance his chances of a recall to the England squad. At this stage of the transfer window, it’s still very unlikely the Red Devils sanction an exit.
