Paris Saint-Germain's worst fears have come true. Details emerged last week of a meeting between Kylian Mbappé and Nasser Al-Khelaifi, in which the striker confirmed his decision to leave the club once his contract expires on June 30 this year. That means that the end of the current season will coincide with the closure of a 7-year stint for 'Kiki' at the French side.

For the player it will be an opportunity to continue his professional career at another club, probably Real Madrid, and take on new challenges. The Champions League seems to be his main objective, as he has never been able to win that title. But for PSG it will be a headache. Not only will they not receive a cent for the departure of their main star, but they will also have to spend a fortune to hire one or more players to replace him.

While there are several top forwards in the squad, such as Ousmane Dembélé, Marco Asensio, Randal Kolo Muani, Goncalo Ramos and Bradley Barcola, the club's chiefs will surely try to add a star player who will excite the fans and who can take on the responsibility of leading the team.

Marcus Rashford meets those characteristics, as he is a similar player to Mbappé and is used to the pressure of a big team like Manchester United. 'The i' claims that the English forward is the main favorite of PSG's chiefs. But he is not the only one on that list. Napoli's Victor Osimhen is also an option, although he is a completely different player, as he usually plays inside the box as a centre-forward.

Other alternatives

The third name on PSG's list is not a forward, but a midfielder: Gavi. The Spanish player is one of the stars of Barcelona and the Spanish national team. There he was coached by Luis Enrique at the Qatar 2022 World Cup and the manager trusts his talent and versatility. However, his exit clause from Barcelona is over a billion dollars, so it seems difficult for the negotiations to succeed.
