The signing of Kylian Mbappé by Real Madrid could completely change the map of world football. Not only because Los Merengues will become the most powerful team in Europe, if they are not already with stars like Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior, but because Paris Saint-Germain will spend a fortune to replace him.

The French side have top level forwards like Ousmane Dembélé, Randal Kolo Muani, Marco Asensio, Goncalo Ramos and Bradley Barcola, but without 'Kiki' they will need a new star who can take on the responsibility of leading the team. That is why some players are mentioned as possible replacements: Victor Osimhen, Xavi Simons, Gavi and Marcus Rashford.

Of these four, the one with the most similar characteristics to Kylian Mbappé is the English forward, as he has speed and dribbling talent, goal-scoring ability and versatility to play as a winger or centre-forward depending on the team's needs. For this reason reports indicate that he is PSG's main favorite. But, in that case, his departure could cause a serious problem for Erik Ten Hag.

Although Marcus' performances this season have been far from those of previous years, the Dutch coach has always considered him a key part of the team. Without him, it will be necessary to hire a forward who can fulfill his role on the pitch and live up to the expectations of the fans.

Who is plan B?

According to Transfermarkt, Marcus Rashford is worth €70 million (about £60 million). That amount would allow Manchester United to sign a top player, but the solution may be much less expensive: Mason Greenwood. The forward is on loan at Getafe until the end of the season and has shown excellent performances there. This week Sir Jim Ratcliffe spoke about him and, although he assured that a decision on his future has not yet been made, he left the door open for his return.
