Marcus Rashford warned against PSG move due to Kylian Mbappe by ex-France star



| Last Updated:


Marcus Rashford has been warned against signing for PSG following the struggles of Kylian Mbappe.

Marcus Rashford has been a subject of interest for many years, with the Manchester United forward at times showing himself to be one of the hottest properties across Europe.

Rashford’s representatives have previously held talks with PSG, and it is said that the club are currently assessing whether to try and launch a fresh bid for Erik ten Hag‘s player in the coming summer as they may have to replace Kylian Mbappe, should he transfer to Real Madrid.

However, former French and Manchester United star Louis Saha has warned Rashford against the move due to the pressure he would be under in France.

“We have seen English players be hounded by the media in the past, but I don’t believe Marcus falls into the same category because he’s criticised due to his performances and his mistakes,” Saha told BetFred.

“When he’s doing well and playing out of his skin, then he’s doing nothing wrong, but when you’re caught going out when you’re not supposed to, then that’s your own fault. You have to understand that you represent your club and your country.

“Marcus is a huge name, and he’s going to receive a lot of press attention, and that’s a challenge in itself. Going abroad to PSG may change the parameters, but he will still be under massive pressure there too. 

“Kylian Mbappé also said something similar in a recent interview about the pressure he is currently under in Ligue 1, claiming that certain people don’t like him because he’s doing this and that, and he said that he’s under so much scrutiny in Paris. However, moving to Real Madrid won’t change anything for him because the pressure at both PSG and Real Madrid is enormous. 

“When you’re such a big player, and I say this with no disrespect intended, but you’re not going to go to Monaco where there are fewer fans in the stands and play under less pressure. If Marcus leaves Manchester United, it will only be to another massive club with huge expectations. He will have to remain very focused, and the pressure will still be there, so I don’t think that a move to PSG is something that will happen in the future for Marcus.

“It would make sense if Kylian leaves, but I don’t think it will change anything for him in terms of the scrutiny he will be under. He has to improve his game, score more goals and do more because he can, and that’s it.”
