Marcus Rashford matches Cristiano Ronaldo’s Man Utd feat last season

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford bagged his 23rd and 24th goals of the campaign on Sunday as the Red Devils beat Leicester City in the Premier League.

As a result, this is now the best-ever scoring season of his playing career and his goal tally has also matched the feat achieved by Cristiano Ronaldo last term.

The Portuguese star was lauded by the fans after bagging 24 goals in his homecoming season, but Rashford has achieved the same in the middle of February.

Rashford has been in the form of his life this campaign and his performances have been truly exceptional since the season restart following the World Cup in Qatar.

The United graduate has 16 goals from just 17 appearances. He has been the highest scorer in Europe’s top-five leagues since the World Cup. Karim Benzema is ranked second with just 10 goals.

Hence, he has been playing at an incredibly high level. Erik ten Hag has repeatedly said that he is ‘unstoppable‘ and in our opinion, his performances have been world-class lately.

This is bound to attracting interest from Europe’s elite clubs and United must sort out his future before the summer when he will enter the final year of his contract.

The £48 million-rated star is already one of the highest earners at the club at £200,000-a-week and judging by current form, they may have to double his wages.

With new investment or a full takeover likely soon, United should easily afford the demands of the 25-year-old, who should only improve in the prime of his career.
