According to Givemesport, the French star has already informed PSG of his intention to depart at the end of his contract.

It is understood that Real Madrid are the leading contenders for the services of the France international, while a move to Liverpool has also been mooted.

Real have previously attempted to sign the 25-year-old, with the former Monaco ace coming close to joining them in 2021.

PSG want Rashford to replace Mbappe

With the possibility of Mbappe exiting this summer, reports suggest PSG are already scouring the market for a replacement.

It is believed that Rashford is top on their shortlist, with the French giants reportedly training their eyes on the Manchester United star.

PSG football adviser Luis Campos is said to be a big admirer of the England international, who enjoyed a career-best run of 30 goals and 11 assists last season.

The development comes at a time when Rashford is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford after being involved in instances of indiscipline.

Meanwhile, Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is also said to be a target for PSG.

Goal reports that Osimhen is also a likely candidate to fill the shoes of Mbappe at Parc des Princes.

However, the Parisians will have to contend with competition from England, with Arsenal and Chelsea said to be monitoring his situation.

Mbappe set to trademark his celebration

In other news, Sports Brief highlighted the steps Mbappe has reportedly taken to protect his trademark celebration and name.

The former Monaco man wants to own the intellectual right to the image alongside the name 'Mbappe.'

If he is successful, his goal celebration will be trademarked in 27 European countries, including Spain.
