Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona are keen on an unlikely move for Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford according to reports emanating from the Spanish media.
Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona chiefs are dreaming of a move for the young England international attacker but they are aware that it would be difficult to lure him away from the Red Devils.
Barcelona have already made the signing of a striker their top priority ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
The Catalan giants want to sign a long-term replacement for the ageing Luis Suarez and Marcus Rashford definitely fits the bill.
The 21-year-old looked lost at times under the managerial reign of ex-manager Jose Mourinho earlier this season but he has been transformed since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced the Portuguese tactician as the Manchester United manager.
Jose Mourinho paid the price for a disastrous start to the Premier League this season.
Rashford has been able to usurp Romelu Lukaku as the Red Devils’ first-choice striker under Solskjaer.
Reports claim that Manchester United have made a breakthrough in contract talks with him with a possible six-year deal on the horizon.
He has scored six goals in 10 starts and 1 substitute appearance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Rashford and Paul Pogba have been in sensational form under Solskjaer who has managed the Red Devils to 11 wins, one draw and one loss in 13 matches in all competitions.
