Marcus Rashford has burst onto the scene this season after being given a chance in the first team. He was hoping for the odd cameo appearance this season but after an injury to 300,000 pound per week England striker, Wayne Rooney, and United having few other strikers available, Rashford has seized his chance to shine.
His youth club, Fletcher Moss Rangers, have revealed that he turned down offers from both Everton and Liverpool in order to join his childhood heroes, the Red Devils at Old Trafford.
He scored on his debut in the Manchester derby and has continued to find the net with his latest strike against West Ham in the FA Cup quarter final. This was the last game to be played at West Ham United’s stadium, Upton Park before they move the Olympic Stadium.
It was a sweet shot, set up nicely by Anthony Martial, and slotted home passed the floundering Darren Randolph giving Louis Van Gaal some breathing space. He scored twice in Europe against Midtjylland in another must-win tie although they were dumped out by Liverpool a few weeks later.
Everton under David Moyes were admirers of the young Marcus Rashford and tried to lure him to their clubs but the young star decided to follow players such as Danny Welbeck and Wes Brown from Fletcher Moss Rangers to Old Trafford.
Time will tell if he continues to find the net and become a Manchester United legend but at the moment, the signs look good with some evening whispering, just whispering at the moment, about a possible England call-up.
