Marcus Rashford scored 30 goals in all competitions last season for the first time in his career, which is an even bigger achievement when you consider he wasn’t our penalty taker. It takes his United total tally to 123 goals, meaning he needs 130 to equal Wayne Rooney’s record as the all time top scorer. Having just signed a new five-year deal with the club, Rooney said, in an interview with The Athletic, that he believes Rashford could be the man to take his record.

He had a fantastic season. The challenge for Marcus now is to do it for the next five, six, seven years and really take his legacy to a new level. Because he is a player who could quite easily go and break my goalscoring record.

However, Rooney believes that Harry Kane, the player who recently overtook him as England’s all-time top scorer, is the man United should be looking at to add to the squad.

I thought it was time to go last season and he stayed. Harry’s probably feeling that and knows there are trophies out there for him to win. He has done everything he can for that to try and be at Tottenham. Now probably is right for him to move on and it looks like he’s ready for that as well, but we know Tottenham can be quite difficult at times.
