Barcelona weigh up striker options, Marcus Rashford considered

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is reportedly on Barcelona’s wish-list despite just renewing his contract last summer.

The young Englishman has struggled to make an impact this season, particularly as a striker, having played in that position in Anthony Martial‘s absence.

Although United overall have been poor, fans have taken exception to Rashford as many feel he should be performing regularly at this stage.

However, the Spanish giants are still believed to be keen on the academy product and so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have a fight on his hands.

Rumours initially kicked off before the versatile attacker renewed his contract before dying down again but they’ve bizarrely come to the fore once more.

According to FourFourTwo, Barcelona are planning for a future without Luis Suarez and so have turned their attentions towards Rashford amongst others.

Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe are amongst the other options for the La Liga giants but both will certainly cost more than the Manchester United star.

Rashford is a diehard United fan but if he is continuously attacked and underperforming at Old Trafford, he may be tempted to reconsider his future.

After all, Barcelona don’t come knocking often but the Red Devils will likely feel secure having tied him down until 2023 at least.
