The Guardian today released a 'Next Generation' interactive, picking one talented youngster from each of the 20 Premier League academies. They will periodically update their readers on the player's progress, as they track them from academy to first-team - in theory.
For United, it's the 16-year-old Rashford, who earlier this summer was at the centre of a transfer tussle between Manchester United and Manchester City despite his tender years.
Compared to United's Wayne Rooney, The Guardian describe Rashford as a No10 who 'loves to drop deep to collect the ball and ignite attacks and is comfortable in central or wide positions.'
Interest from Premier League giants
The attacking midfielder was also linked with Chelsea and Arsenal in May as United scrambled to get him signed up to a new contract.
They've done well just to keep him at the club after losing the likes of Paul Pogba from their academy in recent years.
Elsewhere, The Guardian picked out Dominic Solanke, the England under-17 international, as the Chelsea player to watch while Chris Willock, a winger linked with a move to Manchester United, is Arsenal's hottest prospect.
Willock was thrust into the spotlight by Arsene Wenger when he played him against Boreham Wood in a friendly in preseason. He performed well enough for Wenger to say 'it's natural that he lacks a bit of power at his age but when he gets that, he will be a very interesting player.'
