Patrick Kluivert believes Barcelona should sign Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford to replace the ageing Luis Suarez.

The former Liverpool forward still has plenty of life in him and has netted no fewer than 16 goals in all competitions for the Catalan club this season.

But Suarez is now 32 and Kluivert thinks his former club should take a look at Red Devils youngster Rashford as a possible replacement.

The Dutchman, who made more than 180 appearances for Barcelona, told Sport360: “I like Marcus Rashford, a lot. It will be really difficult to get him over. But he is a good player.

“I don’t see a lot of players who can play in Barcelona. [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, perhaps he can play.

“There is not a lot. Maybe some players who can play in La Liga, young players. But, for me, I think the best one is Marcus Rashford.”

He added: “I think so. He has got the skills, the attitude, he’s quick, he’s fast, he can score goals. He is not always in the first XI at Manchester United and maybe he wants to change club. So, why not?”

Rashford has enjoyed a successful season at Old Trafford, and has netted ten times in all competitions for the Red Devils.

Six of these goals have come since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s temporary takeover, as Rashford has been handed more opportunities to play.
