Matteo Darmian: Marcus Rashford can match Kylian Mbappe even while at United

Former Man United defender Matteo Darmian believes forward Marcus Rashford and Kylian Mbappe will one way be battling for the Ballon d'Or.

The 22-year-old is one of the success stories of the Red Devils' academy and has flourished into one of the Premier League's best forwards ever since bursting onto the scene in 2016.

"I still remember Marcus Rashford's first session with the senior squad like it was yesterday," he told The Guardian. "I immediately thought: 'Wow, this is an incredible player'.

"He did so many impressive things for a player of his age and the way he improved in every detail really impressed me. If he continues to work the way he has done so far he can be a Ballon d'Or winner. I'm convinced of this."

"He impressed me the most of all the players at United and he's very young and can still improve. For me, he can reach the level of Kylian Mbappe and compete for the Ballon d'Or for years to come."

Darmian was at United between 2015 and 2019, making 92 appearances.
