Manchester United Forward Marcus Rashford 'Said Yes' To Barcelona Transfer

Manchester United Forward Marcus Rashford 'Said Yes' To Barcelona Transfer

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford agreed a move to La Liga giants Barcelona before making a u-turn, according to reports in Spain.

It is believed Barcelona got in touch with the England international shortly after the start of the 2017/18 campaign, according to Mundo Deportivo, who claim Rashford was initially 'excited' by the prospect of taking a step forward in his career.

The report also claims that his brothers, Dane and Dwaine, were involved in these conversations but on further reflection, the player doubted whether it was the right thing to do, questioning if he could adapt to the different culture and language.

Rashford, who only had two years left on his contract, instead decided to sign a new, £200,000-a-week contact at Manchester United the following summer, while Barcelona brought in their number one target Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

The 22-year-old has since gone on to become a key member of the squad under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring 19 goals in 31 apperances in 2019/20.

"Manchester United has been everything in my life since I arrived here at the age of seven. I will be giving everything I have to help get this club back to where it belongs and deliver the success that our fans deserve."
