LONDON, Dec 14 ― Marcus Rashford has always had the tools to become a world-class forward. In training, he might not touch the ball a lot but he is a finisher and a killer in the box.

During pre-season, the 26-year-old posted a crude video to Snapchat while on holiday with friends and was disciplined by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Ed Woodward, the Executive Vice-Chairman of Manchester United believes that Pogba is "vital" to anything that they want to achieve as a club, as a result of which he will not be willing to sell him to Real Madrid easily.

"That's hard... but I would say Paul Scholes and David Beckham". Right-foot, left-foot, he is a nightmare for defenders.

"He played against Tottenham and he was class", said Solskjaer.

"He said he just wanted the old Jesse back and maybe I can give him that now".

The elegant Rashford says he is tougher on himself than any critic and has talked about minor adjustments he has made to his game.

"I think that he's also trying to be realistic and he knows that at the moment Liverpool have just renewed with [Jurgen] Klopp, Manchester City have [Pep] Guardiola, and which big jobs are available?"

"That's how it is, I won't play forever".

"I feel like this season I'm doing little stuff that shows that it's becoming a bit more natural and easier", he added. I was like, 'I am done at United now. "He wanted more from me". They hold a great amount of power over Maddison and would demand a huge fee for one of their most prized assets, but United should have enough funds to cover it and if Ed Woodward is really serious about getting the red devils back to the top he should spare no expenses for James Maddison. He struggled to pin down a permanent starting place and his goals return has often been sub-par. "He is ready to play in Premier League".

But now, established under Solskjaer, Rashford speaks positively about how the boss, a former striker at United, has infused the side with attacking intent.

"The way we train and prepare for games, it's about us and what we can do to hurt them, not how we're going to stop them", he said. Before the game my dad texted me the comments and said I should make sure I had a good game.
