Marcus Rashford has reportedly emerged as a ‘top target’ for Paris Saint-Germain with the Manchester United forward viewed as ‘the perfect model of the modern dynamic attacking player’.
The French champions are considering their options ahead of next season and are keeping a close eye on Rashford ahead of a potential summer move, with manager Thomas Tuchel a huge admirer of the player’s talents and viewing the 22-year-old as the ideal player to compliment an exciting forward line alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
According to the Independent, Tuchel is attracted by the striker’s direct style and versatility and believes England ‘don’t realise how good a player Rashford actually is’.
The German coach is keen to possess a multi-functional forward line capable of interchanging positions and believes the England international is the perfect player to bolster his attacking options.
United, however, are unlikely to part with the academy graduate easily and will value Rashford in excess of £100m even amidst the financial uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic – a figure which reports believe PSG would be willing to pay.
Rashford’s representatives would be prepared to listen to PSG’s interest but the player remains happy at Old Trafford, growing in both status and influence in recent seasons and developing into a natural leader in Solskjaer’s developing side.
United’s recent upturn in form has raised optimism surrounding the club and there is a feel-good factor surrounding the Red Devils at present, whilst qualification for next season’s Champions League may make PSG’s pursuit of their top target even more difficult.

Meanwhile, the striker is set to be handed an honorary degree by the University of Manchester following his impressive campaign to end child poverty this summer, helping charity FareShare provide four million meals to underprivileged children, while he also forced the government into a u-turn over the provision of free school meals.
