The story

Barcelona look to battle Madrid to acquire Rashford

There are reports in Spain that Barcelona are preparing a £100 mn bid for the United superstar.

They would have to battle Los Blancos, who too are eager to acquire his services.

Although it is not clear as to how much would Madrid bid for him, as of now, it is being reported Barcelona are ahead as they have made Rashford their prime target.

Contract

Replacement

Who would Rashford replace at Barca?

While he has been linked to move to Barca, it is being wondered as to who could be on his way out.

Reports in Spain suggest that apparently ex-Liverpool and current Barca player Philippe Coutinho could be shown the door.

Interestingly, Coutinho was a target for United a few weeks back, but he is not a priority for Solskjaer.

Verdict

Should Rashford leave United for Barcelona?

Considering his performance at United, although not consistent, he has played a crucial role in guiding United to wins on several occasions.

Also, he has received consistent gameplay this season.

With ten goals and seven assists this season in the EPL, Rashford doesn't really need to move anywhere.

However, his chances of winning the UCL would surely increase if he moves to Spain.

If Rashford manages to script a historic win for United here, Barca are most certainly going ahead for him.
