Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he is worried about the sudden change in Marcus Rashford’s behaviour amid talk he could leave for Barcelona.
At a time where Barcelona are circling, United are trying to tie the 21-year-old down to a new contract.
The Daily Mail say that Rashford is demanding wages in the region of £200,000-a-week in order to commit.
And Solskjaer, they claim, has been left concerned by his star striker.
It is claimed the 46-year-old believes the youngster to be uncharacteristically sulky, cutting a frustrated figure at times on the pitch.
Meanwhile, someday days after the Red Devils’ 3-0 defeat at Camp Nou that saw them exit the Champions League, footage has emerged of United’s coaching team handing a note to Rashford during the second half.
Spanish TV network Gol picked up on a previously unseen moment when the United bench wrote down a tweaked line-up as they chased the game, with Paul Pogba surprisingly lining up on the left wing.
Solskjaer called Rashford over to the touchline to collect the note – which was written by coach Kieran McKenna – and pass on the instructions, with the team switching to a 4-4-2 formation with the striker partnered up top by Anthony Martial.
Rashford held on to the note for several minutes until he was involved in a collision with Gerard Pique on the edge of Barcelona’s penalty box, with the note falling out of his hand.
