According to Matteo Darmian, a former Manchester United teammate, Marcus Rashford could win the Ballon d’Or by reaching the same level as Kylian Mbappe.

Rushford enjoyed his most productive season in terms of goals in 2010-2016, scoring 19 runs in all competitions for the Red Devils after retiring from January due to a back injury.

Under English international Louis van Gaal, the scene erupted in early 2001, and his Europa League and Premier League have both found the net twice since the club’s academy approach.

But Darmian, 22, is not surprised by his continued development from this agility, seeing how good he was from the front, at a very close edge.

“Like the first season with Marcus Rashford’s senior squad, I still think immediately I thought, ‘Wow, this is an incredible player,'” he told the Guardian.

“He did a lot of impressive work for a player his age and the way he improved in every way has really fascinated me.”

The Italian defender, who returned home after signing for Parmar last September, thinks England’s internationals could still be better.

Darmian thinks there is a possibility of a match with Rashford’s Paris Saint-Germain superstar Mbopp, the pair will probably be competing for personal honors for the next few years.

“If he [Rashford] He can still win the Ballon d’Or the way he has worked so far. I’m sure about that, ”he said.

“He impressed me the most among all the players at United and he is very young and can still improve. For me, he will be able to reach the level of Kylian Mbappe and compete in the Ballon d’Or for the next few years.”

The whole back worked at Old Trafford during his time under Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, as well as the current boss, Ole Gunnar Solskire.

“I can only say good things about Solskire, believe me,” Darmian said of the Norwegian. “I will give him a long-term contract.

“He is a very ready coach and Manchester United have started this project, with a lot of young players, a lot of British players they will continue this project and they will continue this project.

“I hope Solskazar has had success at the club because of the person I have met.”
