PSG Return for Milan Talent Leao But Man United Star is Priority

Paris Saint-Germain are hot on their heels this transfer market for an attacker after losing academy graduate Arnaud Kalimuendo to Rennes. Les Parisiens have added two names to their wishlist, including Milan star Rafael Leao, according to RMC Sport. PSG are ready to return for the Portuguese after having pursued him earlier in the summer.

Paris coach Christophe Galtier does not have ex-Inter marksman and Monza target Mauro Icardi in his season plans, thus onboarding a new forward is the need of the hour at Parc des Princes. Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is PSG’s number one target, as he matches the club’s required profile upfront. The French champions are said to have opened discussions with the Premier League giants for a transfer move.

Rashford reportedly gets along well with star forward Kylian Mbappe, but the presence of Rossoneri talent Leao spices things up, although he is second in line. It is understood that the Portuguese attacker is heavily appreciated by new sporting Luis Campos.

Regardless, Milan do not want to sell their prized possession and in turn want to offer him a contract extension. Coach Stefano Pioli echoed the club’s perspective in a recent interview.

Besides, Rashford seems like a more preferred deal to execute since his downturn of form in the past year at his boyhood club. PSG believe they can tempt him to change scenery to restart his career as a first team regular.
