Rashford, 18, burst onto the scene with a brace against FC Midtjylland on his debut in February and he has since established himself as a key member of the side.
Meanwhile, Martial, 20, has arguably been Man United’s best player this term. The Frenchman scored his 16th and 17th goals of the campaign in the 3-2 defeat against West Ham United last time out. Beckham, who famously held the No.7 shirt during his playing days at United, was full of praise for the pair.
“Rashford is a player that is exciting to watch, he’s young, plays with confidence and plays with the presence of a United player at such a young age,” he said.
“Martial is great and can score goals, but he is very young and still needs time.”
Both players are extraordinary talents and Louis van Gaal deserves credit for placing so much faith in them at an early age.
But while it has been fantastic to see youngsters light up at Old Trafford, there is a sense that a club of United’s resources should not be relying on them so much.
United look meek without them both in the side and it is hard to imagine where the goals come from without the duo. It is an area which undoubtedly needs looking at during the summer transfer window.
