Marcus Rashford has been drawing a lot of attention ever since making his professional debut for Manchester United, as the versatile youngster hasn't missed a beat even despite the Red Devils' struggles.

The striker has been closely tied with a move to Real Madrid earlier in the past, but it looks like their longtime rivals FC Barcelona are really high on the chance of inking him to a long term deal in the summer.

Even so, Manchester United has repeatedly stated Rashford is not for sale and that they have no interest whatsoever in selling him to a direct rival on a European level of the likes of Madrid or Barcelona.

Still, the Blaugrana seem reluctant to give up on their pursuit for the 21-year-old and have reportedly made him their top transfer target for the summer, although the striker has no release clause in his deal, according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.

Rashford has thrived under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and with Romelu Lukaku falling down in the pecking order, he's set to have a lot of opportunities going forward at Old Trafford.

Even so, his ability to play on either flank of the pitch, as an offensive midfielder or even as the number 9 make him a tailor-made fit for the Catalans.

So far, the Englishman has netted 10 scores to go along with 8 assists in 32 caps for the Red Devils this season, and he'll play a major role in United's chances to make it to the EPL's top four.
