FC Barcelona are keen on a move to sign Marcus Rashford from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the 21-year-old England international is one of a number of players on FC Barcelona’s wish-list this summer.

The same story says that Manchester United are determined to keep hold of Rashford, but FC Barcelona could be ready to make a big money bid this summer to test their resolve.

According to the same article, the Catalan club are thought to be ready to try and take advantage of Rashford’s failure to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

The England international’s current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2020.

Rashford is widely regarded as one of Manchester United’s most important players following his rise to prominence a few years ago.

He has scored nine goals and made six assists in 26 Premier League appearances this season to help Manchester United up to fifth place in the table.

Rashford will be expecting to feature when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Watford.
