This season could be massive for Marcus Rashford.
Despite competing with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the 19-year-old played 53 matches in all competitions under Jose Mourinho last season.
However, with Zlatan being the main striker, Rashford had to settle playing on the left-wing for the majority of the campaign.
Now, with the arrival of Romelu Lukaku for £75 million, Rashford may be fearing being shifted out on the wing once again.
But it seems Jose Mourinho is fully aware of Rashford’s best position and has even hinted at playing him alongside Lukaku this season.
Mourinho on Rashford
"Today Rashford was in a different team than Lukaku but we will also try both in the same team which I think can also work," he said earlier this summer.
"Last season in this period everyone was saying with me it would be difficult for Marcus to play but he was one of the top with appearances of the team.
"He played a lot in different positions which is good for his evolution and played the Europa League important matches.
"He's learning a lot, a great professional, great attitude. Last season in a period he was not scoring goals and missing a lot of chances which was not a drama because that's part of the evolution.
"We know he is going to score more goals than last season."
And Rashford has definitely started pre-season on fire. He’s scored three goals in three matches - including a strike in the 2-0 victory against Manchester City - and looks as though he’ll have a big part to play this season.
And it also seems he’s taking his football development very seriously.
According to The Sun, he’s installed a £50,000 ice chamber in his home to help him recover from training and matches.
Rashford has purchased his very own Cryotherapy chamber in his gym at his £1.85 million six-bedroom mansion in Cheshire.
Why Rashford has brought an ice chamber
A source said: “Marcus is a top athlete and is deadly serious about his football career.
"He’s leaving nothing to chance and wants to start this season firing on all cylinders.
“He has a gym at home and is very interested in how he can best look after himself off the pitch.
“It’s a lot of money to spend, but if it gives him that extra one per cent in his career he thinks it’ll be worth it.”
The ice chamber works by exposing the body temperature to around -160C to start a process of muscle regeneration and immune-system stimulation.
It means the player can train with more intensity, reducing muscle soreness and helps with sleep.
United fans will no doubt be glad to see Rashford doing everything he possibly can to fulfil his incredible potential at Old Trafford.
