Manchester United Ace Ideal Direct Replacement for PSG Post-Mbappé, Says Journalist

Paris Saint-Germain must replace the production that Kylian Mbappé is leaving behind. The 25-year-old is leaving the Parisians in June when his contract expires, and many anticipate he’ll join Real Madrid.

So, how does PSG go about replacing the Frenchman? The Athletic compiled a list of players they should target to begin the post-Mbappé era in the French capital.

Journalist Nick Miller believes Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford would be a wise choice for the Ligue 1 side to replace the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner. 

“In Mbappe, they are losing a rapid, technically-gifted forward who can play through the middle but ultimately prefers operating on the left,” Miller wrote. “If they are going down the ‘direct replacement’ route, rather than reappraising the structure of their team, they could do a lot worse than Manchester United’s Rashford, a player they have previously shown interest in.

“It is undoubtedly true that Rashford has been poor for most of this season, but his performances for a lot of the previous one displayed just how good he could be. In fact, his form this season might make him cheaper for PSG, and from United’s perspective/their willingness to sell, we also have to factor in the dreary business of the profit and sustainability rules: as a graduate of United’s academy, he represents a fat chunk of profit that could go some way to easing their concerns in that area.”

Journalist Ben Jacobs has shared that PSG is considering adding Rashford to their team. However, they’re holding back on making a move until they hear directly from Rashford that he’s interested in leaving the Red Devils.

PSG is cautious because they believe that their prior dealings with Rashford before he renewed his contract with Manchester United were simply efforts to gain leverage.

It will be interesting to see if sporting advisor Luis Campos and Co. revisit this file.
