Marcus Rashford is reportedly ‘open’ to joining Paris Saint-Germain, with a move away from Manchester United potentially on the cards this summer.

The England international endured a poor season with the Red Devils last season, scoring seven goals and registering two assists in 33 Premier League performances.

Rashford’s lacklustre performances prompted calls for him to be replaced on the left wing by younger options, such as Amad Diallo, but Erik ten Hag stood by his No. 10 for the entirety of the campaign.

However, the 26-year-old may opt against repaying the faith of his manager by moving away from Old Trafford, amid interest from PSG.

According to HITC, the Ligue 1 outfit are expected to reignite their interest in Rashford as they look to bring in suitable replacements for Kylian Mbappe ahead of next season, and the forward is ‘open’ to heading to the Parc des Princes this summer.

United are prepared to offload their academy product over the coming months after being left surprised by how his form nosedived last season, with the forward’s off-field antics also being raised as an ongoing issue.

Saudi Pro League outfits have therefore been alerted to the situation, as well as PSG, but Rashford is not keen to head to the Middle East and firmly favours a move to Paris instead.

Luis Enrique’s side are yet to open talks over a deal as it stands, with the higher powers at the club waiting for encouragement from both United and Rashford before tabling an offer to ensure that the foundations are laid for an agreement to be reached.

The fee which the Red Devils will demand for Rashford is yet to emerge, though Sir Jim Ratcliffe may be keen to negotiate a deal for one of his club’s highest earners given that the INEOS chief is keen to orchestrate a rebuild of his own.

United are hoping to bolster their ranks at both ends of the pitch ahead of next season, with signing at least one central defender viewed as a priority at the Theatre of Dreams.

Ten Hag has also made it clear that he hopes to acquire the services of a striker who can compete with Rasmus Hojlund for the No. 9 spot in his starting eleven.
