Transfer: Barcelona choose between Rashford, Firmino to replace Suarez

Barcelona would still prefer to sign Marcus Rashford from Manchester United, rather than Liverpool sensation Roberto Firmino, Mundo Deportivo reports.

The LaLiga champions are drawing up a list of candidates to replace Luis Suarez, as the clock ticks down on the Uruguayan’s time at the Nou Camp.

Rashford has struggled for United so far this season, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer oversees their worst start to a campaign.

That has however not put off Barca, who apparently rate him over the Firmino, a player who has been instrumental in Jurgen Klopp’s side’s stunning start to the season.

Rashford reportedly held talks with Barca in the summer, before putting pen to paper on a new megadeal with United in July.
