Barcelona Have Shortlisted Marcus Rashford As A Potential Replacement For Luis Suárez

Marcus Rashford has emerged in Barcelona's three-man shortlist to succeed Luis Suárez at the club.

That's according to Mundo Deportivo, who published a front-page story on Tuesday that reports the Manchester United forward is one of the names that the Spanish club are keeping a close watch on.

The Spanish newspaper carried the headline 'Rashford, on the agenda,' but the reigning La Liga champions could try and make a move for him in the summer.

After all, the 21-year-old forward has a contract that runs until 2020 at Old Trafford, with United able to trigger a one-year extension on his current deal.

Considering the England international's performances in recent months and becoming the first-choice striker under United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the Red Devils are reportedly working on a new deal and want him to commit his future to the club like Anthony Martial did in January.

Of course, Rashford isn't the only option and Barça could also turn their attention to Luka Jović, who has had a superb season at Eintracht Frankfurt so far.

The 21-year-old Serbian striker, who is on loan from Benfica, was previously linked with Barcelona and is widely tipped as one of the favourites to arrive at the Camp Nou in the summer.

Antoine Griezmann, who scored a fantastic volley for France in their opening Euro 2020 qualifying match against Moldova, has once again been linked with Barça.

Following on from France's 4-0 victory over Iceland in their Euro 2020 qualifier, though, the 28-year-old Atlético Madrid star came out to dismiss the rumours about him leaving for the club in the summer.

"I'm already used to it and a little bit fed up, every year it's the same, so I'm used to it," he told Univision.

Who should Barcelona sign to replace Suárez in the long term?
