Comparing Marcus Rashford’s Man Utd record at 22 to Cristiano Ronaldo’s
After joining United in 2003, Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and the Champions League before joining Real Madrid in an £80million deal.

As the stats show, Ronaldo and Rashford had an pretty similar record in all competitions during their first few years in the United first team.
The England international is scoring goals for United on a slightly more regular basis than Ronaldo achieved at the same age.
However, Ronaldo did provide more assists for his team-mates and they both provide a direct goal contribution every 126 minutes.
The 23-year-old will now be looking to follow in Ronaldo’s footsteps and take his game to the next level.
