Ally McCoist believes Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford should make the move to Ligue 1 giants PSG.

On Monday, Fabrizio Romano revealed that the England international was “considering his future” at Old Trafford as he is “concerned about his lack of game time”.

Where might all Man Utd’s players go and for how much?

The 24-year-old has only started nine times in the Premier League this season.

Rashford came on for the last 25 minutes against Manchester City on Sunday. United were beaten 4-1 by their rivals as Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez scored braces.

He has been linked with top-flight trio Arsenal, West Ham and Newcastle. Real Madrid have also been added to the mix by Spanish media.

However, a move to PSG could be on the cards with French international Kylian Mbappe out of contract at the end of the season.

Former Rangers striker McCoist believes a move to the French capital would be “good” for Rashford.

“I would [make the move],” McCoist told talkSPORT. “He’s got to look at himself. Why is he not in the team? It suggests he’s not doing enough for Ralf Rangnick for him to put him in the side.”

He continued: “That said, you look at the club, you look at the surroundings, Manchester United are all over the place just now… If I’m Marcus Rashford I’ve got to start thinking about myself. How’s he going to get back in that England squad?

“In a fresh challenge, somewhere like PSG. I’ve got that down as a good move.”

Meanwhile, Ralf Rangnick and his interim Manchester United coaching staff believe only two players have shown character in times of recent hardship, according to ESPN.

Rangnick took interim charge of the Red Devils last December following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag remain at the top of the club’s shortlist to be Solskjaer’s long-term successor.

Rangnick expects to leave behind a group of players that have proven helpless in the face of difficulty.

The 63-year-old ‘has identified a lack of ability to overcome adversity,’ with ESPN adding that Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are the exceptions to that general rule.
