AC Milan legend Francesco Baresi has named one Manchester United star that he would love to have at the San Siro.
The Red Devils welcome the Serie A giants to Old Trafford on Thursday night in their Europa League last-16 tie.
Bruno Fernandes has once again been United’s stand-out player this season, but it is Marcus Rashford who has caught the eye of one of Italy’s greatest ever players.
“I like Marcus Rashford a lot, he’s an extraordinary player,” Baresi told The Times.
“He wouldn’t be bad for Milan. He can play in any position up front; it would be a nice advantage.
“Rashford is a modern forward who has everything required to do well. He has already shown and done great things and he has a lot of quality.”
Rashford looks likely to miss out against Milan, as he recovers from an ankle injury suffered in the Manchester derby.
United could also be without Edinson Cavani. Meanwhile, David de Gea, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata are all expected to miss the tie.
Milan have their only injury problems, with former United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic out. The Swede is, however, hopeful of returning for the second leg.
Ismael Bennacer, Hakan Calhanoglu, Theo Hernandez and Ante Rebic have also missed the trip to Old Trafford.
United target wants Prem switch
Manchester United have reportedly received a huge boost over their pursuit of Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.
It’s common knowledge that Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to land a top central defender this summer.
A new striker is also on Solskjaer’s radar, but it would appear that he is closing in on Harry Maguire’s new partner.
United are expected to spend big on one of those positions, whilst trying to land a bargain on the other.
That bargain could prove to be Varane, as the France international closes in on a Bernabeu exit.
The 2018 World Cup-winner is under contract until 2022 but has no interest in penning an extension.
As a result, Madrid could be forced to sell him for a bargain rather than risk losing him for nothing.
Varane will have no shortage of offers, but Spanish outlet AS claims he has decided he will be happiest playing in England. Read more…
