FRENCH giants Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly planning a sensational transfer swoop for Marcus Rashford.

The Ligue 1 champions are keen on adding an attacker to link up with superstars Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.

And Rashford, 24, is the man they want, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.

It’s claimed PSG has already held talks with the England ace’s representatives.

While ESPN says Rashford’s camp has gone into the discussions with an open mind.

But PSG is yet to make a formal approach to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are likely to command a high fee if PSG do come to the table with a bid, especially as they are on the lookout for a new forward themselves.

Rashford is out of contract next summer, but United does have the option to extend his deal for a further year.

Les Parisiens want to sign a forward who can either play out wide or as the main striker.

Rashford himself can do both, having moved out to the wing in recent years after bursting onto the scene as a clinical center-forward.

The Carrington Academy graduate has been linked with PSG in the past – when ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino was claimed to be a fan.

New sporting director Luis Campos is also reported to be an admirer.

PSG gaffer Christian Galtier confirmed this week that the club wants to sign a new forward, and they are “working hard” to bring someone in.

He said: “We wish for the arrival of a new striker. With a very busy calendar until Nov. 13, plus the World Cup, obviously, we wish this arrival. The club is working very hard.

“I am in direct contact with [sporting director] Luis Campos on this and he is in direct contact with the management and our president.”

Galtier added: “I cannot confirm it but the club is working hard on this position.”

Rashford struggled for form last season, missing the start of the campaign due to a shoulder injury.

He scored just four goals in 25 Premier League games when he returned, seeing him lose his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

But he did look sharp in pre-season and played 90 minutes in United’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Sunday.
