Man Utd 'came close to swapping Marcus Rashford for Kylian Mbappe but PSG star snubbed transfer'

KYLIAN Mbappe and Marcus Rashford came close to a sensational transfer swap last summer before Mbappe snubbed the deal.

With Rashford's contract expiring next summer, PSG may decide to go in for him again, amid rumours of renewed interest in the Englishman.

However, Mbappe looks set to finally join Real Madrid in the summer when his contract with current club PSG expires.
