PSG has reportedly begun talks with Marcus Rashford’s agent over a possible summer deal for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.
The French champions, i.e., PSG are planning to bring in another striker for the club before the transfer window closes, with Christophe Galtier confirming the club is “working” to sign another attacker.
Ahead of Saturday’s clash with Montpellier, Galtier stated to reporters “We want another striker to come in. With a busy schedule, we want arrivals. PSG is working, I am in direct contact with Luis Campos.”
“Luis is in direct contact with our president. We must not make any mistakes. Will this player arrive? We don’t know. It has to be a real plus.”
As per the reports of L’Equipe, Rashford has been identified as the club’s main target, with PSG already in talks with the England international’s agent.
Journalist Julian Lawrence said the Ligue 1 giants want an attacker who can play in a wide area and midfield and therefore, sees Rashford as an exemplary acquisition.
Lawrence claims there is no talk of a deal with Manchester United yet, but the 24-year-old is at this stage in his career where he is open to new challenges, as PSG met his brother and agent, Dwayne Rashford, last week.
How Much Time Does the Attacker have Left Before His Potential Move to PSG?
Rashford has just 12 months left on his Old Trafford contract, but the club is in a strong position to demand a hefty transfer fee with a 12-month extension option.
The Englishman has been in good shape with the Red Devils in pre-season, but struggled against Brighton & Hove Albion in the opening weekend of the 2022-23 Premier League season.
Rashford struggled to make a record for Manchester United last season with just five goals and two assists in 31 appearances. There were hints earlier this year that he was planning to leave this summer.
Rashford on His Training with the Red Devils
We have got that feeling of excitement and that buzz around the training ground again and so it is definitely positive going into pre-season,” Rashford mentioned to MUTV earlier this summer. “It is just about, one, getting the principles right of how Erik [Ten Hag] wants us to play and the details, and, two, enjoying it.”
“I don’t think I have had a proper pre-season since 2019 so for me, it is definitely a positive thing. I feel like I probably needed that time to switch off a little bit and me having that time enabled me to refocus a lot earlier than I expected to be honest.”
“It [the break] was just a few days over four weeks and I always split it in half, so I had two weeks when I was just relaxing and a little over two weeks when I was training so it’s been a good period for me. As I say, I feel ready and focused so when that first game does come it’s good to know you have done almost six weeks of training beforehand. It will definitely be a positive.”
Rashford with the record of 93 goals and 57 assists in 303 appearances for Manchester United, has been training with the Red Devils this week ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Brentford.
