Paris Saint Germain He does not stop at the transfer issue and is accelerating for a striker to replace Mauro Icardi, whom Christophe Galtier ruled out completely for the 2022/23 season. Taking advantage of the fact that the market will be open until September 1, PSG analyzes the best options to reinforce their attack.
A jewel from Manchester United appeared in the deck of candidates. Is about Marcus Rashford, who according to the international press would be the main candidate to reinforce the powerful Parisian attack commanded by Messi and Mbappé. However, the situation does not seem easy at all because the ‘Red Devils’ have the English striker. At least that is what Erik ten Hag has stated.
The truth is that while the relegated Icardi is looking for a team and the first interested in Turkish football appear, PSG is fully focused on signing a top-class attacker. There are very few free players and you will have to make some play to get away with it. The ones you are interested in have a current contract and cost a million.
Although Rashford, 24, did not have a good season and only scored 5 goals in 32 games, his contract will expire at the end of the 2022/23 season and his wish would be to leave United. A new air wouldn’t hurt at all. However, the English would be reluctant to negotiate for Marcus. They just wouldn’t contemplate a drop of that magnitude right now.
In addition to the English striker, PSG would be interested in the Portuguese Rafael Leao. His exit is not easy either and is subject to a millionaire economic investment. The 23-year-old AC Milan player has an exit clause of 150 million euros, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. If they want it in France, they will have to pay a good sum of money. For now, these are the only two possibilities for PSG.
As for free strikers, and options that they will surely not be considering in Paris, the Italian Andrea Belotti (28 years old) is available, who left Torino and is valued at 22 million euros, according to Transfermarkt; Frenchman Lys Mousset (26 years old) who left Salernitana, as well as Diego Costa, Edinson Cavani and Keita Baldé.
