Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and his family reportedly held transfer talks with Barcelona during the worst period at the club under Jose Mourinho.

According to The Athletic, players’ confidence was damaged by Mourinho and it led Rashford and his family to contact Barcelona. 

However, the Catalan giants were not optimistic that United would sell the England international.

Rashford and others ended up staying, with Mourinho being sacked midway through the 2018/19 season and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
