Underneath the headline ‘Rashford, on the agenda,’ Mundo report that the 21-year-old is seen as a versatile option, but would be expensive to bring to Spain.
Suarez is still in fine form for Barca and has scored 23 goals this season, but the club are wary of his age – he is now 32 – and are succession planning.
Much has been written about Frankfurt striker Jovic over the past few months, with the Serbian being touted for a £43million move to Barca.
He is Europe’s most in-form striker, and Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Chelsea have all been credited with interest in his services next season.

Griezmann, meanwhile, is a long-term transfer target for the club, but after embarrassing them last season with his decision to stay at Atletico Madrid, Barcelona may look elsewhere this summer.
Rashford, meanwhile, has played 38 times for United this season and has netted 12 times in all competitions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
The England man is a big part of the club’s future plans, and it will take a huge sum to prise him away from Old Trafford.
