Marcus Rashford: Manchester United want to get the 21-year-old tied down to a new deal this season to keep Real Madrid at bay, The Sun reports.

It is understood that he is waiting for the Blancos to piece together a £100 million ($130m) transfer package which will take him to Santiago Bernabeu.

While the Blues are willing to splash the money - a new deal worth more than £300,000-a-week that has always been on the negotiation table - to keep the 28-year-old at Stamford Bridge beyond his current contract that runs until the end of the 2019-2020 season, Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has recently stated the decision to leave Stamford Bridge would be for Hazard to make.

It may be that their Belgium worldwide forward forces their hand, with his intentions set to be aired to the world shortly.

"For now, the only thing to think about is playing well for Chelsea".

Barca are now denying claims they want to sell the under-performing midfielder but reports say Coutinho has been involved in crisis talk with boss Ernesto Valverde regarding his future.
