It is finally official that Kylian Mbappé will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, as journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed that the French striker has already told the Paris club's president that he will leave the French capital at the end of the campaign. This has generated a wave of rumours about his next destination and, although some Red Devils fans were excited about the possibility of even trying to sign him, the reality is that everything points to him joining Real Madrid.

In that sense, Mbappé's departure from PSG could trigger a domino effect that could end up directly affecting Manchester United, as Fabrizio Romando assured that with the money they will save from what they will no longer spend on Mbappé's salary, they will go hard at the transfer market this coming summer, looking to reinforce their team's forward line with young and talented players.

According to the media outlet Caught Offside, for some time now, one of the targets that have been discussed within PSG would be one of the big stars that Manchester United currently have and that is Marcus Rashford, 26-year-old English striker who, according to this information, would be seen as an ideal replacement for Kylian Mbappé in the Parisian team's project.

Rashford is currently valued at 70 million euros by the Transfermarkt portal and has a contract with the Red Devils until 2028, so if these rumours are true, the Old Trafford board could get a good amount of money in the sale of the player and thus seek other reinforcements.
