Marcus Rashford is reportedly ready to assess the prospect of swapping Manchester United for Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to shock claims in England
Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has reportedly placed Rashford’s name at the top of his wish-list for the upcoming transfer window.
Tuchel sees the 22-year-old forward as an ideal candidate to replace either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe, who have both been heavily linked with summer departures from the Parc des Princes.
Rashford has played a prominent role under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term, racking up 21 goals and ten assists in 38 outings across all competitions.
The England international came through the ranks at Old Trafford before making his first-team debut in February 2016, netting a brace in United’s 5-1 demolition of Midtjylland in the Europa League round of 32.
Since then, he has gone on to add 66 goals and 38 assists to his Manchester United tally and become one of the essential first-team players.

The Red Devils have every intention to keep hold of Rashford and have slapped a £100million price tag on his head to fend off PSG’s interest, as reported by the Daily Star.
Although the Englishman’s representatives are willing to take PSG’s offer into consideration, Manchester United are confident of keeping their star on board beyond the summer.
Additionally, the forward has three years left on his contract in Manchester and has never shown ambition to leave the Theatre of Dreams, which puts United in a strong bargaining position.
