Five-time European champions Barcelona are said to be eyeing Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford as an alternative to their top two attacking targets.
This is according to the publication from Spanish news portal Sport which claimed that Marcus Rashford is being eyed by Barcelona as an alternative if they are unable to sign Antoine Griezmann and Neymar.
Barcelona are the favourites to sign French World Cup winner Griezmann from fellow Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid after the player confirmed that he will be leaving the Spanish capital this summer.

The Spaniards have also been linked with a move for former player Neymar who left the club for French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) two years ago.
Barcelona received a world-record fee of £198m for Neymar from PSG who activated the release in his then contract at the Nou Camp.
Marcus Rashford will be the alternative for Barcelona if they can’t get their top targets but Manchester United are confident that the England international will stay at Old Trafford beyond this summer irrespective of where the interest in him is coming from.
Rashford scored 13 goals in 47 appearances for Manchester United during the just concluded season as the Red Devils missed out on Champions League football via sixth place in the league.
