Barcelona ‘eyeing up £100m move’ for Marcus Rashford ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League quarter-final second leg at the Nou Camp
- Barcelona are lining up a £100million move for Marcus Rashford this summer
- Rashford will have one year left on his current deal at the end of the season
- United can extend his deal by a further 12 months but are yet to agree a new deal
The 21-year-old will have one year left on his current deal at United at the end of the season.
The Red Devils are keen to offer the starlet a new and improved deal to keep him at the club until 2024 but are yet to agree on anything with the player – something that the Catalan giants are keen to take advantage off, according to The Mirror.
Barcelona are lining up a £100million move for Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford
United will be able to extend his current deal by a further 12 months in the summer and will be hoping a new £300,000-a-week deal going through to 2024 will be enough to entice the striker.
Rashford has found his feet under newly-appointed boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is said to be apart of the Norwegian’s plans at the club.
Reports suggest that Rashford is keen to renew his current deal but this will not deter Barcelona in trying to tempt the England international once the window reopens.
