Barcelona ready to pounce amid contract uncertainty around Manchester United star

Marcus Rashford Manchester United Barcelona

The Catalan giants are plotting a £100m bid to bring Marcus Rashford from Old Trafford to the Camp Nou, according to the Mirror.

Rashford only has a year left on his current contract and is yet to agree an extension.

United are reportedly willing to offer Rashford a massive £300k per-week to keep him at the club, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the Mancunian to lead a new era at United.

But Barcelona are buoyed by the 21-year-old's contract situation, and believe a £100m bid will be enough to tempt United into selling.

Barça lead the Champions League quarter-final between the two sides 1-0, but as United prepare to defend against further damage on the pitch, they may well face a fight for their star striker off it.
