Neville estimates Rashford’s switch worth in hundreds of thousands

Gary Neville has estimated how much Marcus Rashford is worth now and how much the Manchester United striker could be worth in the future.

The England international is one of several players who have been revitalised since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reigns as United’s caretaker boss.

Rashford has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season and provided six assists with Solskjaer admitting on Friday that he wants to see him add more goals to his game.

The 21-year-old striker played brilliantly on Wednesday night and scored the decisive penalty as United stunned PSG to win 3-1 and qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

“I was shaking in the crowd for him, thinking, ‘What a moment!’ But he’s the real thing, Marcus Rashford,” Neville told beIN SPORTS.

“Man United – people will say they need to sign a striker [in the summer] and they probably do.

“But they’ve got, through the ranks there, he’s a £100m striker now and he could become a £150m striker. He is absolutely top class.

“Ole’s got him playing exactly where he should play, on the last line, challenging the space in behind.

“It was a huge moment for him because they’re the moments actually that you grow from.

“Even if he missed tonight, it would’ve been a moment that he could’ve said, ‘Well I stood up there.’

“He scored and he’s took a big moment. He hit it hard, he was short [with his run up], he wasn’t nervous about it despite the long delay, players coming towards him. All the things you would expect.

“He did everything right and I have to say, he’s turning into a brilliant, brilliant player.”
