PSG want to replace Kylian Mbappé with Marcus Rashford.

Mar­cus Rash­ford is on Paris Saint-Ger­main’s short­list to replace Kylian Mbappe, with Man­ches­ter Unit­ed fac­ing an exo­dus of attackers.

Rash­ford’s future is increas­ing­ly in doubt as he approach­es the final year of his con­tract, while Cris­tiano Ronal­do, Edin­son Cavani and Antho­ny Mar­tial are also eye­ing exits.

Eng­land ace Rash­ford, who has 18 months left on his con­tract, is con­sid­er­ing his future ahead of the sum­mer trans­fer window.

Sources insist Rash­ford has­n’t made a deci­sion and is focused on get­ting back to his best form to win back his place at Old Traf­ford. Nonethe­less, the acad­e­my grad­u­ate is far from cer­tain to sign a new con­tract with Unit­ed, who are des­per­ate to avoid los­ing him on a free transfer.

Rash­ford has not start­ed a Pre­mier League game since fac­ing Southamp­ton on Feb­ru­ary 12.

The club will appoint a new man­ag­er ahead of next sea­son, and any deci­sion Rash­ford makes on his future could be influ­enced by Ralf Rang­nick­’s successor.

PSG boss Mauri­cio Pochet­ti­no — who is an ear­ly can­di­date for the job at Unit­ed — is a huge Rash­ford fan.

Sports­mail under­stands PSG explored the pos­si­bil­i­ty of sign­ing the 24-year-old last sum­mer but Unit­ed had no inten­tion of let­ting him go.

The Ligue 1 club are eye­ing Rash­ford as a poten­tial replace­ment for Mbappe, who is set to leave France at the end of the sea­son when his con­tract expires.

If Pochet­ti­no replaces Rang­nick, there’s every chance the Argen­tine will look to keep Rash­ford — who could also be per­suad­ed to com­mit his future to the club in case the Argen­tine becomes boss.
