Manchester United might not have won a lot of titles in the last few years, they may not have signed the best of managers in the post Sir Alex era, they have not had a player like Cristiano Ronaldo amongst their ranks anymore, but one thing the Red Devils still surely have is money! Though the club signed Anthony Martial last season as a young striker, who has really shown his class for them and have England international Marcus Rashford too, who just can’t stop impressing, Jose Mourinho could still possibly spend big on yet another attacker.
Marcus Rashford has been superb since he made his debut for the Premier League giants’ first team last term, as quite a few members of the starting eleven were out with injuries and literally saved Louis van Gaal’s neck a couple of times. However, it seems that he might not get the due credit that he deserves under the new incoming Portuguese boss, who might add a star striker like Zlatan Ibrahimovic or even Edinson Cavani.
If either of the two or any big players joins Mourinho due to his plans of turning things around at Old Trafford, then that striker could be preferred over the young Englishman. This would not be fair to him, after the maturity that he has shown in the previous campaign.
He has adapted really well and his link up plays with stars like Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, and Wayne Rooney was much better than what a player like Memphis Depay displayed since his move to England. The decision will surely be up to Mourinho, purely based on the tactics that he has in mind, which he wants to employ at The Theater of Dreams, as he starts the rebuilding process at the club.
Mourinho promised that the fans need to forget the three horrific years that have gone by, though the Dutchman at least helped them win the FA Cup, in his last game in charge of the club. It is supposed to be the start of a new era under the “Special One” and hopefully, a high-quality player like Rashford gets the chances that he deserves to showcase his talent.
Hopefully, he does not suffer the fate that Belgian international Adnan Januzaj did, who was one of the best United players under David Moyes and was totally erased from the frame under Van Gaal. Wishing all the best to this new rising star!
