Barcelona boss Xavi plots move for Manchester United star

Barcelona are interested in a move for Marcus Rashford amid his ongoing struggles this season for Manchester United, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The 24-year-old’s form has led him to being dropped to the bench for the Red Devils as well as being dropped by England. This has led to the player reportedly considering his future at the club, with only one year remaining on his contract.

It comes as the Blaugrana are in need of a potential long-term forward option, with Ousmane Dembele set to leave as a free agent in the summer

New manager Xavi Hernandez has impressed in his short tenure so far, taking the club up to third in LaLiga and booking their place in the Europa League quarterfinals.

Signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferran Torres and Adama Traore have also helped bolster the side, with more signings to come in the summer to help build the manager’s vision.

Rashford played 19 Premier League games this season, scoring four goals and assisting twice.
