Barcelona to make shock move for Manchester United striker?

Luis Suarez news

Barcelona keen on Rashford swoop

Spanish giants Barcelona are reportedly looking into a surprise move for Manchester United's Marcus Rashford as they seek a replacement for Luis Suarez in their ranks.

Rashford has been in sublime form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment on the temporary basis and he has contributed eight goals in the 12 matches since Boxing Day.

This has recently spread the speculation that the striker is content to sign a new deal but according to Mundo Deportivo, that may not be the case with the Blaugrana stepping up their pursuit.

The Spaniard champions are understood to be huge admirers of the England international but they still have concerns regarding the asking price with United likely to demand at least £86m for their graduate.

Rashford currently has 16 months remaining on his existing deal with United and the failure to agree a renewal by the summer is likely to spread further concerns regarding his future with the club.
