Marcus Rashford

Barcelona, Man United’s Marcus Rashford & the recycled rumour

Barcelona & Man United’s Marcus Rashford

Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo have splashed Man United striker Marcus Rashford on their front page on Tuesday.

Mundo Deportivo reveal that Barcelona are considering a move to sign the 21-year-old.

The headline in the paper reads “Rashford on the agenda”.

MD say that the Man United forward is an option for Barcelona, along with Luka Jovic and Antoine Griezmann.

Barcelona’s considerations

What are Barcelona looking for?

Mundo Deportivo believe that the Catalans are looking to replace Luis Suarez, who has been struggling for goals this season.

Yet replacing Suarez is no easy task. MD claim Barcelona need a striker who’ll hit the ground running from day one.

Rashford is thought to fit that bill as, as MD report, he has “enormous technical ability to play in the line of attack of any big team.”

So how likely is that Rashford to Barcelona deal?

Mundo Deportivo note it will be difficult for the Catalans to sign Rashford, who is under contract until 2020.

Readers are told a deal would be “a very complicated task” as Man United rarely sell their best players.

Rashford recycled

This isn’t the first time the Spanish media have played up the potential on Rashford moving to La Liga.

Indeed, on February 21 Mundo Deportivo ran a similar story.

On that occasion readers were told that Barcelona’s aim of signing Rashford is the “impossible dream”.

The report claimed the Old Trafford dealmakers consider the England international as “non-transferable”.

So what’s changed in the past five weeks to make MD believe the Rashford deal may now happen? Seemingly not very much.
