Barcelona set their sights on Marcus Rashford on a free transfer when his contract expires and are also interested in teammate Diogo Dalot

October 10, 2022

Barcelona are keen to secure the services of Manchester United pair Marcus Rashford and Diogo Dalot next summer, according to reports.

It is not the first time Manchester-born Rashford has been linked with a move to Barca, with the club previously thought to admire his ‘versatility’.

Rashford came under scrutiny last season for scoring just five goals across all competitions, but has since rediscovered his form under manager Erik ten Hag.

The 24-year-old, who has recently been linked with Arsenal, has already netted five goals in all competitions so far and was named the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for September.

With his contract expiring next summer, Barcelona-based newspaper SPORT say he is on their shortlist.

Although Rashford’s contract runs until 2023, the club have an option to extend it by a further year.

It remains to be seen, though, if the player is keen on a new challenge and keen on making the move abroad.

Barcelona are also running the rule over Rashford’s teammate Dalot, who joined the club for £19million in the summer of 2018 from Porto.
