SHOCK reports emerging from Spain suggest Barcelona are ready to test Manchester United’s resolve with an audacious bid for Marcus Rashford.

And with the cash-strapped Catalans in mounds of debt there is uncertainty regarding whether they could afford to pay that much.
It’s not the first time Barcelona have been linked with a move to Rashford.
The 24-year-old reportedly agreed to join the club in 2018, but backed out over fears he would not fit in at Camp Nou.
And it’s claimed that Rashford could be moved on because of ‘insufficient’ game time so far this campaign.
A major shake-up at Old Trafford could be on the cards after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking last month.
That’s not expected to be until June though, by which time Barcelona may have improved upon their dire financial situation, and be able to facilitate a move for Rashford.
And despite by no means disappointing with his performances, Rashford is the latest Old Trafford star linked with an exit.
He missed the first two months of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery following Euro 2020.
Since returning to the fold he’s started five out of eight Premier League games, including the last three in a row.
Although he has scored just twice in the Prem so far this campaign.
