Man Utd forward Rashford: Dream to play with Scholes

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford says he would have loved to have played alongside Paul Scholes

The England international has become United's main attacking talisman since Romelu Lukaku's departure last summer.

Rashford has yet to play with new signing Bruno Fernandes, and he admits it would be a "dream" to play with someone with the passing range of Paul Scholes.

"It would have been a dream to play with someone like that," Rashford told The Official Manchester United Podcast.

"The biggest thing for me is range of passing. Probably the closest thing to that was when Wazza (Wayne Rooney) was playing a bit deeper and it was just so enjoyable to play as a No.9 in those games when he was playing in that position

"Similar with Carras (Michael Carrick) as well, as soon as they get the ball they look forward and want to play forward, not only to feet but in behind a lot of the time. As a forward that's all you want. As long as someone is seeing the passes and trying to make them, that's what you thrive on."
