Marcus Rashford among players wanted by Mbappe at PSG

The Mirror now claims that the former Monaco star presented PSG with a four-man shortlist of players he wanted the club to sign.

The publication adds that Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is among the four players that Mbappe wanted at Parc des Princes.

Other players that he wanted include Robert Lewandowski, who joined Barcelona, Ousmane Dembele, and Gianluca Scamacca, who signed for West Ham from Sassuolo.

PSG had a pretty decent transfer window as they signed six new players, including the midfield quartet of Fabian Ruiz, Renato Sanches, Carlos Soler, and Vitinha.

Defender Nordi Mukiele also linked up with the French giants alongside striker Hugo Ekitike, who is at the club on loan from Reims.
