Rashford joined Man United‘s youth academy aged seven and progressed through the club’s ranks before making his senior debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League in February 2016.

Rashford has gone from strength to strength with each passing season at Old Trafford. The 2019/20 campaign was the most productive of his Man United career, which saw him score 22 goals and register 12 assists in all competitions.
