Marcus Rashford has turned up as a target for Paris Saint-Germain, who are looking to add to their strike force. The England international has seen his stock drop in recent seasons, following lacklustre performances.
There have been cries by Manchester United fans that some players are not worthy of wearing the shirt. It has been several seasons of depressing performances and results by the Red Devils, leading to the once top club of English football sliding behind the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and eternal rivals Liverpool.
Manchester United need an overhauling and selling some players who have not carried their weight in gold. Despite the glaring issues, the Red Devils have continued to rigmarole and dance around in circles. There has been no progress in the quest to sign top-quality players and offload the ones who have been lacking.
While players like Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan Bissaka and Marcus Rashford are labelled the key to the slide by the club, they have an opportunity to offload one of them. Paris Saint-Germain have declared an interest in signing Marcus Rashford.
PSG interested in Rashford
PSG have one obsession – to win the UEFA Champions League. The Paris club is doing all they can to get the personnel to help deliver the elusive trophy. The French giants have earmarked Marcus Rashford as a player that can add the required quality to help the club achieve its purpose.
Marcus Rashford, whose form has dropped in the past couple of seasons, has a chance to reignite a career that has burst at the seams.
The England international has hobbled from one mediocre performance to another in the last few seasons. The nightmare Rashford has suffered at Old Trafford is about to end, and a new beginning awaits him. It is an opportunity to boost his career before the World Cup in November. Rashford has just a year left on his current deal, although it has an option of a further year.
Talks already underway
It is a new dawn at PSG as the new manager has brought in some order in a club that has been chaotic in its operations. Les Parisiens want a striker that can play both centrally and out wide. Following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino and the employment of Christophe Galtier, the club has intensified efforts to land such a striker. The new boss even admitted their interest in Rashford in a press conference on Thursday afternoon.
According to sports daily L’Equipe, talks have already commenced between both parties. The report suggests that PSG is yet to make contact with Manchester United over their interest in Rashford. The Paris giants have already lost Arnaud Kalimuendo to Rennes and with Mauro Icardi also on his way out of the club, it makes it necessary for the club to get a replacement.
The report adds that talks are going smoothly between both parties. No one is sure if Rashford is ready to end his long relationship with Manchester United. He has been at the club for 17 years, arriving at Old Trafford at seven.
Rashford wants to reignite his career and be part of the England party to the World Cup in Qatar. The Manchester United forward needs to do something special to convince Gareth Southgate that he is worthy of a spot in the team to the World Cup.
