Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford claims that he would like to spend his whole career with the Red Devils, after joining the club at the age of seven.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has expressed his desire to commit his whole career to the Red Devils.

Rashford joined Man United's academy at the age of seven and progressed through the ranks before making his first-team debut in February 2016.

The England international hopes to follow in the footsteps of Old Trafford legends such as Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville, who can all claim to be one-club players.

Speaking to the club's official website, Rashford said: "I think of course I'd like to but I think in football nowadays, things happen unexpectedly. You can never be 100% sure – one, you're going to be replaced and the club might want to sign somebody else, or maybe the style doesn't suit you anymore.

"Maybe the style of football has changed so there are many things that can change throughout the duration of 10-15 years. For me, I hope to be able to play at this club for as long as I possibly can and retire where I started.

"I want to get even better at things that make me score goals and assist things, to keep on improving and to give the team more opportunities of winning games. It can be positioning, runs, different types of runs, movement in the box and then finishing techniques.

"So there are a wide range of things I try to improve on and will do that throughout my whole career. I feel privileged to wear this shirt that has been worn by so many great players in United's history. You know, for me, I don't feel the pressure.

"It's just about carrying on following in people's footsteps and people's journeys really. But I'm my own player. I do things my way. I'm going to improve in my own way, which is obviously slightly different to the other players, they all have different qualities and reached different heights in their careers. Hopefully, I can be here long enough to do that myself as well."

Since making his senior debut in 2016, the 23-year-old has gone on to score 88 goals in 271 appearances for his boyhood club.
