​Former Manchester United man Phil Neville believes that Red Devils' striker Marcus Rashford is as good at other players his age, including the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe.


Dembele joined Barcelona for more than €100 million while Mbappe moved to Paris Saint-Germain on a loan deal with an option to buy for €180 million and Neville believes Rashford is in the same bracket.


Rashford is one of the highly rated talents in English football and scored twice in last night's League Cup victory over Burton Albion, taking his tally to five for the season.



Speaking to ​Sky Sports, Neville said, "Everybody praises Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe but nobody talks about Rashford in this country."


"Because he's English we just say 'he plays on the left wing, he's OK'. He is up there with Dembele and Mbappe, who also play on either wing. People say you have to play Rashford as a centre forward but you can play him anywhere because he is good enough."


"Rashford is in the same bracket as those two - £100m-£150m players - he is every bit as good as those two and can be in the future because he is improving every season."



"He broke in under Louis van Gaal and set the world on fire, in his second season under Jose Mourinho everyone thought he wouldn't play but he did in all the big games. Now he is adding goals to his game and he can be absolutely world class," he added.


Rashford broke into the Manchester United team as an 18-year-old and has since established himself as a regular in the starting lineup. The England international has made 79 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions and has scored 24 goals, helping them win the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League.
