  • Kylian Mbappe will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season
  • PSG reportedly have an interest in Man Utd winger Marcus Rashford
  • The club has been linked to other wingers in top European teams

It is no longer news that Kylian Mbappe will leave Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires in the summer after seven years at the Ligue 1 giants.

The club is already actively considering their options to replace the talisman. It will take more than one player to fill the void he will leave behind – a pacy and tricky winger and a striker with high returns in goals.

Sports Brief looks at five wingers who could replace the French star amidst Marcus Rashford links.

Five potential Mbappe replacements

1. Marcus Rashford

Per Mirror UK, PSG are ready to offer £75 million to Manchester United to lure the England international to Paris. Rashford signed a new contract till 2028 last summer, but the French club want to make a second attempt to sign him, having previously tried in 2022. The Red Devils value him at £100mil.

2. Rafael Leao

The Portuguese winger is one of the players on the radar of the Paris club to replace their departing star. There is a hindrance to this deal as he signed a new contract till 2028 last summer, and per Forbes, he has a release clause of €175mil.

3. Luis Diaz

According to Colombian news outlet El Pais, the Parisians are interested in Liverpool winger Luis Diaz, and the Reds will demand as much as €145mil for a player they signed for €47mil in 2022 from Porto and has a contract till the summer of 2027.

4. Bernardo Silva

Mbappe's former teammate at AS Monaco, Bernardo Silva, is also of interest to the French giants. Per FourFourTwo, he turned down the club last summer after helping Manchester City win a historic treble. He has a release clause of £50mil, which could make a deal swift if the player wants the move.

5. Gabriel Martinelli

As noted by The Athletic UK, Gabriel Martinelli is a player who mimics Mbappe stylistically and also boasts the versatility that could make him an ideal candidate for Luis Enrique to consider for next season. He has a contract until 2027 at the Emirates Stadium and has no release clause.

Why Mbappe was in Barcelona

Sports Brief previously that Mbappe was spotted in Barcelona after it emerged, he would leave PSG, with Spanish giants Real Madrid rumoured to be his next destination.

The French national team captain was seen alongside teammate and friend Achraf Hakimi in the Catalan city, making Barca fans believe they are in the race for his signature.
