Barcelona interested in Man Utd striker Marcus Rashford

Barcelona are considering a move to sign Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford should they miss out on other targets, ONA reports citing media.

The Catalan giants are looking to sign a long-term replacement to serial goalscorer Luis Suarez and could go after Rashford.

Barca are interested in Paris Saint-Germain sensation Kylian Mbappe.

Tottenham's Harry Kane, Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino and Lautaro Martinez of Inter are also on their wish list.

But Manchester United's Rashford, who turns 22 this month, is thought to be on the radar, too.

That is despite the fact that the forward penned a new four-year, £200,000-per-week contact at Old Trafford in the summer, with the option of an extra 12 months.

Rashford broke on to the scene in February 2016 season when a shortage of strikers led Louis van Gaal to promote him into the first team and he made an instant impact with goals against Midtjylland and Arsenal.

In total, he has 48 goals in 180 appearances for the club he joined as a seven-year-old.
