Marcus Rashford, Man Utd, PSG, 2023/24

Paris Saint-Germain reportedly have no interest in signing Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford despite recent links with the England international.

Rashford, 26, has been touted as a possible replacement for Kylian Mbappe at the Parc des Princes, with the Frenchman set to join Real Madrid on a free transfer once his current contract expires at the end of the June.

However, The Sun have reported that Rashford was never a contender to replace Mbappe at PSG.

An unnamed source told The Sun: “PSG have never been interested in signing Marcus [Rashford] and given his struggles on and off the pitch this season, they have given it no consideration at all. He will not be moving to PSG.

“He might benefit from the noise around a possible transfer going away so he can concentrate on reigniting his United career.”

Rashford scored 30 goals in all competitions last season, but that tally stands at just eight this campaign and he has been widely criticised for his defensive work rate in 2023-24.

Victor Osimhen and Rafael Leao have both been linked as alternative Mbappe replacements at PSG, although Chelsea are currently leading the race for the former and the latter has repeatedly stated that he intends to stay at AC Milan, despite significant transfer interest.

Marcus Rashford should consider leaving Man Utd - Wayne Rooney

Although PSG are reportedly not interested in purchasing Rashford this summer, Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney has questioned whether leaving Old Trafford may be the best option for the 26-year-old.

“He has had a very difficult season. We all know he has got the ability and got all the attributes to be a top world-class player," he told Premier League Productions.

"That's the frustrating thing. Last season, he went and scored a lot of goals. But this season, he hasn't kicked on. He doesn't look happy when he is playing. You wonder, is his best option to move away from the club and have a fresh start? But he is a Manchester lad.

"I would love to see him get his career back on track at the club, go on to score goals and try to help the club win trophies. But he certainly has had a difficult season.”
