Barcelona set to battle Man Utd for La Liga No.19 forward

By | January 23, 2020

La Liga defending champions Barcelona could reportedly battle Manchester United for the services of Valencia attacker Rodrigo Moreno before the end of the winter transfer window.

The Red Devils are believed to have identified the Spain international forward as a potential target this winter as they are in the market for Marcus Rashford replacement who will miss the rest of the season due to the back injury.

However, according to Marca, the Catalan giants are also considering a move for the 28-year-old forward as they look to strengthen their options in the final third of the field.

Barcelona are also struggling with finishing up front as Ousmane Dembele remains on the sidelines due to a hamstring problem, while Luis Suarez set to miss rest of the season having recently undergone a knee operation.

Rodrigo – thought to be valued by Spanish giants in the region of £51m – has found back of the net four times and provided 10 assists in 22 games for Los Che this campaign.

The attacker, who is capable of playing in a number of different positions in the final third of the field, also has an stunning record at international level having managed to score eight goals in 22 appearances for Spain.
