Man United’s Marcus Rashford is Barcelona’s ‘plan B’ – SPORT

Suarez getting on

Luis Suarez has been Barcelona’s main striker for some time now.

The Uruguayan made the switch from Liverpool to Spain in 2014 for a fee believed to be around £73 million.

Suarez has gone on to play 247 games across all competitions for Barca, in which he has scored 177 and assisted 96.

However, Suarez is now 32 years of age and coming to the end of his prime years.

Rashford shortlisted

As a result, it appears as though Barcelona are searching for a new forward.

Last month, Antoine Griezmann announced his intention to leave Atletico Madrid this summer.

While he was expected to be going to Barcelona, reports have since emerged suggesting that some Barca players have ‘vetoed’ the Frenchman’s move to the Nou Camp.

Now, according to Spanish outlet Sport, Barcelona are eyeing Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford as a potential ‘plan B’.

Rashford has had an indifferent season with the Red Devils.

Rashford scored just three times under Jose Mourinho in the league this past season.

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at Old Trafford, Rashford’s form would improve, as the England forward scored six in eight appearances.

However, his form would once again take a dip towards the back end of the season.
