Mirror: Barca allegedly ready to offer £100m for Rashford
- The 21-year-old is out of contract with Manchester United next year.
- The Red Devils reportedly offered him a new £300,000-per-week deal.
- The Catalans could consider offloading Coutinho to raise funds for the big-money transfer.
Daily Mirror provide an unbelievable update on Barcelona's sensational pursuit of Manchester United rising star Marcus Rashford. Apparently, the Catalans' interest in the 21-year-old is so strong that they are reportedly ready to offer £100million for his services this summer, according to the fresh report in Daily Mirror.
Even though Barca allegedly believe Rashford to be their first-choice target to replace ageing Luis Suarez, it would be quite difficult to lure the forward at the Camp Nou stadium. Still, the 21-year-old has been on Blaugrana radar for a long time and hasn't yet renewed with Manchester United as his current deal expires in 2020.

Mirror believe United are determined to keep hold of their star player as they have reportedly offered Rashford a new deal which would see him earning £300,000 per week. Still, Barca remain confident in landing the 21-year-old as they could possibly offload Philippe Coutinho to balance the books and raise funds for yet another big-money transfer.
Rashford has been exceptional for Manchester United of late, especially following the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. So far this season, he has scored 13 goals and provided 8 assists in 44 matches in all competitions. The 21-year-old also scored the match-winning penalty in the dying minutes of United's second leg against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round of 16.
