BARCELONA are ready to take advantage of Manchester United’s contract troubles by making a £100m move for Marcus Rashford, whose deal is also up in 2020.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to rip up his squad after a disastrous run threatens to wreck their Champions League ambitions.

Rashford, one of a few contract rebels, is on Barcelona’s radar.

The United fan is unwilling to sign a new deal with his contract up next summer.

And it means the Catalan giants are considering putting £100m on the table and ramping up the pressure on United and the England ace, believing Rashford may not want to stay if Old Trafford is not hosting Champions League football next term.

Meanwhile Eric Bailly is set to leave, with Arsenal front of the queue of interested clubs.

Blundering goalkeeper David De Gea has left United braced for a summer transfer saga with PSG with his contract winding down.

Bailly, 25, has not played since the Champions League clash against PSG when he was subbed before half-time.

And the £30million signing is set to end his three-year stay at Old Trafford by moving to Arsenal

Gunners boss Unai Emery has been an admirer of the ex-Villarreal defender after facing him in La Liga while coaching Sevilla.

United are likely to take a hit on the fee they paid in 2016 as Bailly has just one season on his United contract, with Arsenal set to start negotiations at £20m.

But he is still in the price range for the centre-back Emery wants to bolster his defence.

Manchester United believe De Gea’s head has been turned by PSG, who will pay the £350,000-a-week wages he cannot land at Old Trafford.

With De Gea’s contract up next summer, the French giants will lodge an official bid when the window opens.

A £60m offer will ramp up the pressure to accept - or lose him for nothing within a year. PSG are also closing in on a move for Ander Herrara, who is available for free this summer.

De Gea, despondent after failing to keep out City’s two goals on Wednesday, is also wanted by Juventus and Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has admitted he is tempted with a move to Italy.

SunSport revealed earlier this year that United will listen to offers of £75m for Lukaku, whose supposed favoured destination is Juventus.

He has admitted: “Playing in Serie A is a dream, it would be really a dream.  I hope to be able to play sooner or later, even if at the moment I am focused on United.”

Lukaku - who failed to make an impact when he came on as a substitute in the 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester City on Wednesday - will hope to start against his former club Chelsea on Sunday.
