It seems Manchester United has the perfect replacement for Marcus Rashford lined-up and he could be in the first team soon.
At Old Trafford, the view is clear from the stands, from the boardroom and even from the television. Marcus Rashford is destined to go right to the very top of the professional game. The 22-year-old forward has been the brightest spark in a lackluster Manchester United side thus far this season.
His skill, his lethal finishing and his endless amount of energy and pace to burn makes him a formidable prospect to face, for any defender. His style has even been compared to former Red Devils legend Cristiano Ronaldo which is a testament to the incredible form he has been in this season.
Yet it seems that Marcus Rashford’s season may have just ended prematurely. The forward had been purportedly suffering from many niggling injuries which ultimately accumulated in the FA Cup tie against Wolves and Rashford was forced to limp off.
According to the latest reports Marcus Rashford will be sidelined for up to 2-3 months. That is a lengthy period. It might mean he might not play another game for United this season. When he returns from injury he will be desperate to get fit to play for England in the European Championships and might not want to risk aggravating his issues.
It is a major blow for Manchester United who have often relied on Marcus Rashford’s goals to get them out of trouble.
Yet however, it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have a solution up his sleeve.
According to Manchester Evening News via the Metro, the United boss is planning on using the Red Devils’ academy talent Largie Ramazani as Marcus Rashford’s replacement. 18-year-old Largie Ramazani has been hugely prolific this season for the club’s U23 side scoring 9 goals in 13 appearances. He also made his first-team debut in the Europa League.
Just like Rashford, Ramazani possesses electric pace and lethal finishing. While the news may not feel United faithful with much optimism, Marcus Rashford emerged onto the scene just like Ramazani and he made a great initial impact as a 17-year-old in the first team, there is no reason why Largie Ramazani couldn’t do the same.
