Marcus Rashford, who has been at Manchester United since he was seven, extended his deal at the club this summer to put to bed any doubts over where his future lay.

Still only 21, the season ahead could prove to be the biggest in his career to date, with United selling Romelu Lukaku and not replacing him. Rashford will competing with Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood to lead the line.

Speaking to United Review, Rashford has spoken about what the club means to him and what he hopes the future will hold.

I think it’s a very exciting moment. For me it was just about getting the new contract out of the way and solidifying that I’m here for the club. It’s about getting the club back to where it belongs, what everybody knows Manchester United are.

I give my life for the club and that’s the most important thing. For me, when you’re in a squad with a lot of young players who share the same ambition and have the same drive, I can only see us succeeding.

It might take us some time, but if we all stick to the game plan, work collectively as a team, and we’ve got a good manager who knows the club and who shares the same ambition, who knows what we can achieve?

It’s not just me. There’s a group of young players together and we can start to become what we decide to become. That’s an important thing to me: that we can start to help the younger ones coming through. It’s all part and parcel of growing up in a United shirt. It’s just the next step.
