Following Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani, yet another Manchester United star keen on Barcelona move
Manchester United duo keen for Barcelona move
In the past week, rumours of Barcelona moves for both Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood have been forthcoming.

Both players have reportedly grown frustrated by their lack of playing time so far this season, and while Cavani could leave in the summer when his contract ends, there is less certainty on the future of Mason Greenwood, who is contracted to Old Trafford until 2025, while Manchester United have an option to extend it until 2026.
However, now another player is seemingly keen on making the switch from Manchester to Barcelona.
Marcus Rashford also keen on a move?
Another former academy graduate, Marcus Rashford’s Manchester United career got off to a flyer, but has stalled somewhat since thanks to a combination of poor form and injury.
Following a shoulder injury, Rashford has started six times in the Premier League from a total of 9 appearances, but now 24, he is looking for consistent game time in order to allow his career to flourish, something that isn’t guaranteed in Manchester.
As per Spanish outlet Sport.es:
“Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford , would welcome the option of signing for Barcelona, a club that was already interested in him in the past, due to the situation in Old Trafford, where there is an ‘overbooking’ of attackers .”
There is, of course, a common theme with Manchester United’s potential players exiting, with Anthony Martial added to these three. All four have found their gametime limited through the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, with the 36-year-old having played almost every game this season.
In turn, both the younger and more experienced options have been rotated, giving none of them the game time that they really want. Would Barcelona be different?
