Luis Suarez: Barcelona opt for Rashford ahead of Firmino as replacement for striker

Luis Suarez's may still be finding the back of the net at 32 but Liga champions Barcelona have reportedly listed four possible players as potential replacements for the striker, with Marcus Rashford listed, but Roberto Firmino missing the cut.

According to The Mirror, the Uruguayan forward is due to leave Barcelona next summer, with Suarez heading into the final year of his current contract at Barcelona next campaign.

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

At the last count, 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 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 to hit a world record fee.

Rashford currently earns £200,000-a-week after penning a four year contract in the summer.

Kane might be ready for the switch, but Daniel Levy high demands might force Barca to look elsewhere, suggesting Martinez - who has netted six goals in 10 Serie A games for Inter Milan this campaign will be a cheaper option going forward.
