Opting to leave more popular signings aside, PSG has already closed with four names: Vitinha, Mukiele, Ekitike and Renato Sanches. Now, the board must focus on hiring a striker, since the trio formed by Messi, Neymar and Mbappé does not have a striker who is fixed in the area. Therefore, the daily L’Equipe claims that a Manchester United striker has come into the crosshairs, but it is not Cristiano Ronaldo.
Shirt 10 of the Red Devils, Marcus Rashford is seen as a good option for the offensive sector. As he has a contract until June 2023, the athlete can have his departure facilitated, as a free release is likely to occur next year. Thus, the diary reveals that the first negotiations with the athlete’s staff have already begun.

Affected by the arrivals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Sancho, Rashford had a discreet season for Manchester United in the 2021/2022 cycle. Even so, the English club can still demand a high price for the striker, who is valued at 60 million euros by Transfermarkt. At 24, he fits the hiring model that has been adopted by the Parisian board.
If Icardi is traded, the possibility of Rashford being signed should increase. Recently, Christophe Galtier reported that he expects three more reinforcements, which is why the top that controls football is mapping the market to meet the needs of the squad.
“I want a certain number of players, who are very close to each other in terms of level, to create a healthy competition. It’s difficult, I know the president and the sports directors are working hard on it. We are not here to stack players.” said the coach.
