Barcelona set to make approach for Man Utd fan favourite

By | January 3, 2019

Barcelona are readying a move for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford, who scored his fourth Premier League goal of the season in the 5-1 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.

Despite only just turning 21, the Englishman is closing on 150 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions and has netted 37 times for the 20-time English champions.

The youngster’s contract with the club will expire at the end of next season, however, and according to The Express, Catalan giants are keeping a close eye on developments.

The report adds that Real Madrid and AC Milan are both interested in signing England international, but Barcelona are considering making an offer at the end of the current season.

Marcus Rashford has scored five times in 21 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United this season as the north England giants are trying to bounce back after Jose Mourinho’s sack.

And it must be admitted that 5-1 thrashing of Cardiff City will improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford and in the upcoming two fixtures Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are expected to win against Huddersfield and Bournemouth.
