English striker Marcus Rashford has been a Red Devil for his entire footballing career. The 21-year old was born and raised in Manchester and joined the youth academy at the age of 7.
In 2015, during the Louis van Gaal era, Rashford made his United debut. A year later, Rashford was included in the starting line-up for their UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie. He repaid the faith with two goals in a 5–1 win, in the process he became the youngest goal-scorer in European competition. It was a record that he held until the 2019–20 season.
Rashford’s Premier League debut came against Arsenal, where he scored twice and had one assist in a 3–2 home victory. As a result, he became the third youngest scorer for United in Premier League history.
For the 2016-17 season, Marcus Rashford cemented his place in the senior squad. Unfortunately, he went through a dry run until January 2017 when he scored a brace in the FA Cup against Reading.
He was instrumental in United’s 2–0 win over Chelsea, scoring the opening goal. Rashford also helped secure a win over RSC Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. He even started in the Europa League Final against Ajax, winning 2–0.
However, when Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined the team, Rashford spent the majority of the season on the wing. After Zlatan’s exit, Marcus Rashford inherited the number 10 jersey. In 2018-19, he made his 100th league appearance for the club becoming the second-youngest player, behind Ryan Giggs to reach the milestone.
During his entire Manchester United career Marcus Rashford has helped United win the FA Cup in 2015-16. He also has the 2016-17 EFL Cup, 2016 FA Community Shield and the 2016-17 Europa League.
Marcus Rashford takes home over £10million-a-year on top of his Manchester United wages. The England player has sponsorship deals with the likes of Nike. His deals equate to a bonus £6,300 every day of the year.
Back in 2017, when a terrorist attack hit the Manchester Arena, Rashford and a few of his teammates visited the wounded, most of whom were children. He even attended the One Love Manchester Concert, which raised around £2 million.
