Manchester United’s new no.10 is youth team graduate Marcus Rashford.

The shirt was worn by Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season before he left for LA Galaxy. Before that it belonged to Wayne Rooney.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed the player has been given the shirt because he asked for it.

He wanted it. He always wanted it. Of course, he respected the big Rooney and then Zlatan wanted to have it. Of course, he was in the shadow, waiting for the opportunity and now the shirt is empty. It’s something fantastic for the kid, let’s give the shirt to him.
