Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has opted for a surprise candidate for the number 10 role.

While on BT Sports, Paul Scholes opted for England international Marcus Rashford as the player for the number 10 role when asked to pick his best 11.

Marcus Rashford is the leading goalscorer at Manchester  United with eight goals in all competitions and has spent the majority of his playing time on the wings or as a central striker.

Paul Scholes is widely regarded as one of the greatest no. 10s in the history of Manchester United and he believes that Marcus Rashford will thrive in that role.

Marcus Rashford has never played in that role for the Red Devils but Paul Schuler is backing him to make a positive impact if manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides to use him in that role.

He was one of the goalscorers as Manchester United booked their place in the last 32 of the Europa League courtesy the dominant 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade FC of Serbia.

Mason Greenwood scored his third goal in a Manchester United shirt to give his team the lead against the Serbians in the first half before Anthony Martial added a second goal just before the halftime interval.

Marcus Rashford rounded off the scoring at the start of the second half.

Sunday, January 26

West London giants Chelsea have been boosted with the news that Premier League rivals Manchester United have been rebuffed in their bid to sign Edinson Cavani from French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Both Chelsea and Manchester United want to sign a new striker before the January window closes this week and Edinson Cavani is a person of interest for the two English clubs.

Atletico Madrid offered him a two-and-a-half-year deal but they are yet to agree on a fee with PSG for him having had the first offer of €10m turned down by the French giants.

Ben Chilwell

Sunday, January 26

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a big move for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell this summer.

This is as per the latest media reports in the British media.

Ben Chilwell is widely regarded as one of the best left-sided defenders in the top flight of English football this season and his quality has helped his team to third position on the Premier League table.

The Foxes are on course to qualify for Champions League football next season as they have a very good lead over fifth-placed Manchester United on the Premier League table.

With 14 league games left to play, Leicester City have a 14-point advantage over Manchester United in the race to qualify for Europe’s premier club competition next season.

Metro revealed the interest of Manchester United in Ben Chilwell who has scored one goal and added three assists in 19 league games for the Foxes this season.

Manchester United have seen young left-back Brandon Williams blossom into a top performer in that position since his debut for the first team in October and it was revealed by the publication via the Metro that the Red Devils want to rotate him with Ben Chilwell at left-back next season and that would leave Luke Shaw facing a bleak future at Old Trafford.
