Marcus Rashford is among Paris Saint-Germain’s options to replace Kylian Mbappe, should the forward leave the club on a free transfer this summer.
Rashford has been linked with an exit from Manchester United after struggling for regular first-team football this season, with the England international understood to be considering his future at Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old has started just nine league fixtures this season and has failed to find his finest form, each of his four Premier League goals having been scored as a substitute.
The Mail are reporting that Rashford is among the names PSG are considering to replace Mbappe, with the forward expected to sign as a free agent for Real Madrid this summer.
Mbappe continues to be linked with a move to Spain after Real Madrid saw several offers rejected last summer, no new contract talks currently planned between the 23-year-old and PSG.
Rashford has enjoyed an impressive record against PSG in the Champions League, scoring three goals in four fixtures against the Ligue 1 side, including that infamous penalty in the last minute at the Parc des Princess

He has scored 93 goals in 295 appearances for the Red Devils since his emergence from the academy, including scoring 20+ goals across all competitions in each of the past two campaigns.
However, he struggled with a shoulder issue during the latter period of last season and last summer’s European Championship with England, before undergoing surgery on the problem.
Rashford has struggled since returning from his absence and has failed to convince Ralf Rangnick, who chose to name the forward on the bench for Sunday’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad, despite the absences of Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani.
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is said to be a ‘huge fan’ of Rashford and was keen to sign him last summer, though Pochettino himself is among the front runners to replace Rangnick at the end of the season, and would be keen to keep the England international.
