Barcelona are reportedly monitoring Marcus Rashford’s contract situation at the moment with a view to a potential deal. SPORT reports that Xavi wants the deal done as he is a “fan” of the Englishman.
Rashford is out of contract at Manchester United in the summer and talks have not yet begun on a new deal just yet, despite Rashford starting regularly under Erik ten Hag this season. Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract is also set to expire with about six other players are in the same situation.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Rashford has already agreed on a deal with Barcelona once before (opens in new tab), in 2018. If anything, it may be easier to re-agree with another deal. The Catalan outfit are slightly more flushed with cash after pulling various economic levers during the summer, while Rashford might have reduced demands having fallen out of favour in the England set-up and being keen to reignite his career.
Although a switch to Spain looks unlikely, it is being reported that Rashford could be tempted by the offer. In seven Premier League games this term, the 24-year-old has scored thrice and made two other goals.
Meanwhile, it has been reported last summer that Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing the English forward. However, Manchester United’s priority is to keep the star as Erik ten Hag sees him as the future of his dream team.
