Marcus rashford, forward of Manchester United, welcomes the option of signing for him Barcelona, a club that was already interested in him in the past, due to the situation in the English team, where there is an ‘overbooking’ of attackers and has lost importance this season.
Rashford, what contract with United ends in June 2023, although the English club reserves the possibility of extending the agreement with the player for a year if it so wishes, it is aware that this season its options to play have been reduced, so begins to feel the possibility of leaving, as EFE learned.
The information that relates Rashford to Barça is not new, since three years ago, the Blaugrana team contacted him to sign him, but he decided to renew his contract with the English entity. The situation is different now, after several conversations between the club and the player to renew, but no offers still on the table.
The bid for the English striker could be joined by PSG, which has already contacted Rashford representatives.
The current moment of Barcelona, in full reconstruction, does not worry the English player, who trusts that he will continue to be a top-level club.
Raised in the quarry of the ‘Red Devils’, Rashford has developed his entire career at United, but has seen his participation drop in recent months, both due to his physical problems and the arrival of competition in Manchester.
The English forward had to have surgery on his shoulder after the final of the European Championship that England lost to Italy, which had him out of the first seven Premier League games. Since then, He has only started five times in the league, scoring two goals, while in the Champions League he has started two games and played another as a substitute and scored a goal.

He is eclipsing this season with 17 games played and five goals scored.
In addition, United has already begun to shore up the future of the team with the winter signing of the young Amed Diallo, from Atalanta, for an amount of more than 20 million euros.
These series of decisions have opened the door to a Rashford who, in his 24 yearsHe would have to turn his career around, leaving the city in which he grew up and in which he has become a symbol for his actions off the field.
The forward is one of the footballers most committed to the fight against poverty and has been involved to prevent the Government from withdrawing food aid to disadvantaged children during the pandemic.
