Talks have been held with Paris Saint-Germain Marcus Rashford’s representatives are reportedly considering a shocking late move for the Manchester United forward.

The French champions may have Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi in attack but they are still keen to bolster their front-line opportunities ahead of a promising season.

They have already signed Hugo Ekitike from Reims, but with Angel Di Maria leaving on a free transfer and Mauro Icardi on the verge of an exit, they are looking to add another versatile striker to their ranks.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe, PSG have made a surprise move for Rashford and have already held talks with the England international’s camp.

Despite United’s own lack of attacking options, there’s a feeling a deal could be a possibility – especially given Rashford’s current contract expires next summer.

However, the Red Devils can trigger an extra one-year extension – a clause they have included in many players’ contracts, although some, notably Paul Pogba, have left on a free transfer a year later anyway.

It remains to be seen if Rashford would be ready to move to Paris, but the move to Ligue 1 could offer a chance to get his career back on track after a stagnant 18 months.

PSG had originally hoped to lure Robert Lewandowski to the Parc des Princes this summer, although he opted for Barcelona instead and Rashford would represent a very different striker profile.

Manager Christophe Galtier has made no secret of his desire to sign a new striker before the window closes, confirming at a press conference on Thursday that the club are working to bolster their attack.

“Yes, we would like to use another striker. We have a very busy schedule, so we’d like to bring someone in,” said the French coach ahead of Saturday’s Ligue 1 clash against Montpellier.

“The club is working hard on that. I am in constant contact with Luis Campos [PSG football advisor], Board of Directors and President. We mustn’t make mistakes. We must not rush anything. We have to do something realistic.

“There are no guarantees. I know the club won’t sign anyone because of that. It would have to be someone who can really bring something to the squad and the club are working on that.

Rashford started on the touchline last season after shoulder surgery and has managed just four goals in 25 Premier League games, having been in double figures in each of his previous three campaigns.
