Cape Town - Manchester
United starlet Marcus Rashford has come out in strong support of the
club's reported interest in Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
The Spain international, fresh off an impressive season for the
recently crowned European champions which saw him net 15 goals and
provide five assists goals in a 43 appearances, has long been linked
with a move from the Spanish capital.
Despite his obvious quality, the 25-year old has found himself in the
starting XI for a surprisingly small number of matches since the
Primera Division champions activated the buyback clause which saw him
return to Madrid from Juventus at the start of the 2016/17 season.
Rumours of a move to Manchester United surfaced recently, with Jose
Mourinho looking to add some experience and established quality to a
young front line which will in all likelihood be missing Zlatan
Ibrahimovic next season.
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, young Red Devil Rashford
heaped praise on the Spain international and made it very clear that the
club would benefit from a player of his caliber.
"At a big club you are going to attract big players and that's what we want," Rashford said.
"Anyone who can come in and help the club win trophies, which is the
ultimate aim, they are the players we want to bring in. Good competition
is important if you want to be successful," the England international
Rashford also went on to comment on the influence that Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney have had on his development as a striker.
"The way they think, their mentality towards the game, they are the
biggest things that I can take from their game," the 19-year old said.
"I think with those type of players, whether they are here for the
next five years or however long they are here for, you never stop
learning from them."
