Kylian Mbappe included Marcus Rashford on his four man transfer wish list for Paris Saint Germain

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford was reportedly included on a four man transfer wish list that Kylian Mbappe handed to Paris Saint Germain chiefs this summer. 

France superstar Mbappe shocked the football world this summer when he made a sensational u-turn to reject a move to Real Madrid and signed a new three year deal with PSG. 

Since his decision to stay at the Parc des Princes was made public, there have many a number of reports claiming that Mbappe would have a say in the club’s sporting decisions. 

According to French news outlet RMC Sport, Mbappe requested PSG’s football advisor, Luis Campos and his team to sign a new striker that the Frenchman can play with. 

It was reported that Mbappe named a four man shortlist that included Rashford, then Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, who ended up joining Spanish La Liga side Barcelona.

Ousmane Dembele was also believed to be on the list as he was a free agent at the time but he later signed a contract extension with the Camp Nou club. 

Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca was the fourth man on the list, the then Sassuolo player was snapped up by Premier League side West Ham later on in the transfer window. 

Despite the reported request from Mbappe, none of the four mentioned players ended up in Paris. 

PSG ended up brining in six new players, Fabian Ruiz, Renato Sanches, Carlos Soler, Vitinha, Nordi Mukiele and Hugo Ekitike. 

Campos stated that the club did not have a good transfer window. 

He said: “We did not have a good transfer window. The window is open for a long time…the first week we got Vitinha. After that, we had six or seven weeks with nothing. And in the last week, every player is much more expensive. From the moment that economic decisions condition football, it is not a good market.

“We reached the end of the market without the desired balance or perfection. We have a huge level of quality in the squad, without a doubt. Then, in the end, we did not reach perfection. It is always difficult to achieve perfection.”

Despite the frustrations, PSG have made a promising start to their 22/23 campaign, they currently sit top of Ligue 1 after collecting 22 points from their first eight league games. 

In the Champions League, they have recorded two wins out of two as they look to finally get their hands on Europe’s biggest club trophy.
