The 32-year-old joined Barca from Liverpool for £65m in 2014, and has netted 183 goals in 255 appearances, lifting four La Liga titles, four Copa del Reys and a Champions League trophy.

Suarez also formed a formidable attack line with Lionel Messi and at different times with the likes of Neymar, Ousmane Dembele and presently Antoine Griezmann.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reports that Rashford now tops Barca’s wish list, but they are also considering the trio of Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane and Lautaro Martinez.

Mbappe remains No.1 target, but the Frenchman is the costliest, with the World Cup winner valued at over €200m.

Rashford currently earns £200,000-a-week after penning a four year contract in the summer and could be a cheaper option.

Kane might be ready for the switch, but Daniel Levy high demands might force Barca to look elsewhere.
