Marcus Rashford has emerged as one of Manchester United’s great hopes this season with an phenomenal breakthrough into the first team. But it could all have been very different…

According to the Daily Mail, But sources at his first junior club Fletcher Moss Rangers say that a seven-year-old Rashford turned down the chance to join United’s arch rivals Liverpool.

The Daily Mail reports that Rashford was also wanted by Everton, but he was determined to join boyhood club United, following Fletcher Moss Rangers alumni Wes Brown and Danny Welbeck to Old Trafford.

It has proved to be the right decision, because 18-year-old Rashford, despite his tender years, is starting to establish himself as an important player for the Red Devils, for now as well as the future.

He has scored six goals in 11 appearances since being thrust into the side by Louis van Gaal, including Wednesday’s delightful curler against West Ham United, to help United into the FA Cup semi-finals.
