Kylian Mbappe told PSG to buy Marcus Rashford in summer with Man Utd striker on four-man transfer wishlist | The Sun

KYLIAN MBAPPE reportedly wanted Paris Saint-Germain to sign Marcus Rashford in the summer.

The 24-year-old English forward was linked with a move away from the Red Devils ahead of the new season after a lengthy period of poor form.

And PSG were rumoured to be interested in acquiring Rashford despite his record of just five goals in 32 appearances in the 2021/22 campaign.

Now RMC Sport are reporting that the Old Trafford attacker was one of four players Mbappe called on PSG to sign – none of which were secured.

The French superstar, 23, penned a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions in the summer, bringing an end to speculation over a move to Real Madrid.

And Mbappe was quickly keen to have a say on transfers.

The report states Rashford was leading the way as a player he wanted to see PSG sign.

Mbappe is also thought to have wanted the club to agree deals for Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele and Gianluca Scamacca.

But Bayern Munich man Lewandowski ended up joining Barcelona, while Dembele stayed at the Nou Camp.

And Scamacca joined West Ham from Sassuolo.

But PSG's inability to sign any of that quartet does not appear to have affected them at the start of this season.

Christophe Galtier's men have won 10 of their opening 11 matches in all competitions, dropping just two points in Ligue 1 and maintaining a 100 per cent record in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Rashford has turned his form around at Man Utd and seems to be thriving under Erik ten Hag.

He has registered three goals and two assists in six matches during the Red Devils' four-match winning streak in the Prem.

And Rashford's impressive streak saw him named the Premier League Player of the Month for September.
