Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly become concerned over interest in Marcus Rashford that has led to a change in the forward’s ‘demeanour on the pitch’.
That form has led to reported interest from La Liga giants Barcelona, who could bid in the region of £100million.
The England striker is out of contract at the end of next season, and although United do have the option to extend that deal by a further year, it is claimed that Rashford is hesitating over agreeing to the extension. According to the Daily Mail, Rashford wants wages of £200,000 per week to keep him at Old Trafford.
As United start to worry that Rashford wants out, the report suggests that Solskjaer has noticed a change in his behaviour. According to the claims, Rashford is beginning to cut a frustrated figure when things aren’t going his way and is starting to sulk, something which is out of character for the 21-year-old.
Solskjaer is concerned that this may be a sign of Rashford’s discontent at Old Trafford, meaning the Barcelona move could be on.
Ernesto Valverde’s side are looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez, and reports in Spain have suggested they could offer one of three stars to United in return for Rashford.
