Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes Marcus Rashford has the potential to rub shoulders with the likes of Manchester City ace Erling Haaland and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe. Rashford, who scored his 12th goal of the season during United’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Tuesday evening at Old Trafford, has been resurrected by Reds boss Erik ten Hag this season, becoming a stalwart figure in his plans. He has discovered the best form of his career, meaning last season’s struggles are now nothing more than a distant memory. The 25-year-old, who scored three times for England at the World Cup in Qatar, has racked up 16 direct goal contributions in 23 appearances, all while producing performances that have been both impressive and impactful. Ten Hag has frequently waxed lyrical about his ability and potential, recently comparing him to Mbappe.

Those two guys have great pace and awareness that very few players have. “They’re so good at getting in the right areas and scoring different sorts of goals, which is what Marcus is starting to do.” Rashford has picked up the goalscoring baton for United from Cristiano Ronaldo this season. Ronaldo was the Reds’ main source of goals last term, notching 24 in total. The former United striker added: “If he remains fit, remains confident, he is unstoppable. He can achieve everything. “I haven’t seen a talent at United this good since Cristiano Ronaldo. He just needs that aggression and that belief that set aside players like [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano from the rest.” READ NEXT: All the latest United news, views and transfer updates United issue Donny van de Beek injury update after going off vs Bournemouth Erik ten Hag has turned United’s two biggest weaknesses into strengths Erik ten Hag’s start is an even better than the stats suggest Jack Butland holds talks over United transfer move Story SavedYou can find this story in  My Bookmarks.Or by navigating to the user icon in the top right.
