Rashford Aubameyang TEAMtalk

Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing both Marcus Rashford and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, a report claims.

The Catalan giants seem determined to strengthen their attacking options this summer having missed out on their ultimate goal of winning the Champions League.

Atletico Madrid star Griezmann has confirmed that he is set to leave Atletico Madrid this summer after five years of service, with Barcelona heavily linked with a move for the French forward.

However, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo suggests that Barca are considering making offers for a pair of star Premier League forwards too.

England star Rashford has just one year remaining on his current United contract and while the club are ready to reward him with a new £300,00-a-week deal until 2024.

That – as well as his huge £100m asking price – has seemingly not stopped the likes of Barca showing a firm interest in the 21-year-old.

Rashford effectively has two years remaining on his contract at Old Trafford, but the England international is yet to agree terms over a fresh deal.

Aubameyang meanwhile is on a deal until 2021, and the Gunners apparently might not be able to offer the Gabon star the pay rise he is likely to demand within the next 12 months.

Recent reports from the Spanish media have suggested that Real Madrid are also interested in the former Dortmund man, and are considering an €85m (£75m) bid.
