Marcus Rashford believes he can form partnership with Romelu Lukaku

Marcus Rashford has told Jose Mourinho that he can form a brilliant strike-partnership with Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United.

The Portuguese boss signed Lukaku from Everton in a deal worth over £75m as he looked to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front, with the big Swede leaving after scoring 28 goals last season.

Man United haven’t played with a front two since the days of Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, however, Rashford believes the duo have what it takes to form a more traditional forward pairing.

“Having two up front is definitely beneficial for me,” he said. “Once you get used to it, you start to build up relationships and connections – it is a positive thing.

“It gives the manager one extra thing he can use.

“Not only me and Romelu – we can play Anthony and Romelu. We have a few different options we can play.”

Mourinho is convinced Lukaku can be the difference for United this season, but as we’ve seen already Rashford has proven he has what it takes to give the Belgian competition for his spot in the team.

He has confirmed he’ll be trying different formations this preseason along with different tactics with his strikers, where we’ll be able to see if two strikers works for Mourinho’s current system.
