Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have reportedly been prised out of a move for Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.

According to the report from the Daily Express, Barcelona pulled out of the race to sign Rashford because he was deemed to be too expensive.

It was revealed that the Spanish champions were forced to back down on their interest in Rashford after they were quoted £150m for his transfer.

Apart from Barcelona, England international Rashford has been touted as a potential transfer addition to clubs like Italian champions Juventus and Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Marcus Rashford has just over a year left on his current Manchester United deal which expires at the end of next season though the Red Devils reserve the right to activate the extra year clause thus taking him till the end of the 2020/21.

Rashford has been enjoying some form of a renaissance since Solskjaer became the Manchester United manager.

The 21-year-old lost his way when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the Red Devils before he was sacked in December for poor results.

His dismissal brought about the interim appointment of former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has since been named the permanent manager.

Marcus Rashford has done well for Manchester United in the league this season with 10 goals and seven assists recorded.
