PSG ‘remain in contact with Marcus Rashford ahead of potential summer move for the Man United star… with Ligue 1 giants having targeted England forward last summer in case Kylian Mbappe left’
- Marcus Rashford has struggled for goals for Man United for most of the season
- But the 24-year-old has netted twice in as many games to regain confidence
- PSG are reportedly still in contact with him ahead of summer transfer window
- They saw him as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe in case he left last summer
The 24-year-old appeared to be struggling for goals this season, netting just two in his first 11 Premier League games of the season.
But two goals in his last two matches – the latest a last-gasp winner against West Ham at Old Trafford – has seen his confidence boosted.

But independent journalists in France, Hadrien Grenier and Abdellah Boulma, claim Ligue 1 giants PSG are trying to lure the England forward away from Old Trafford.
They report that Rashford is ‘seduced’ by the idea of joining the French capital side, who can boast the talent of Neymar and Lionel Messi.
The duo also add the Ligue 1 leaders targeted Rashford last summer, just in case French counterpart Kylian Mbappe joined Real Madrid.

However, the 23-year-old could well be on the move this year as he is out of contract this summer and looks destined to leave the Parc des Princes for the Santiago Bernabeu.
Rashford meanwhile has fewer than 18 months remaining on the £200,000-per-week deal he signed in 2019, although United have the option to extend it for another year.
The England star has scored 93 goals in 288 games since breaking into Louis van Gaal’s United side during the 2015-16 season.
