    I think he's comfortably below Pogba in terms of value and ability and has a lower ceiling than both Martial and Greenwood. That's not an intended slight on Rashford either, he is clearly a talented player.

    Tottenham, Arsenal, PSG have all enquired about Martial while barcelona was "supposedly" interested in rashford yet you think rashford would fetch more transfer value? Do some of you even realize that if not for United rashford would be playing for bournemouth? Rashford would only go for 40 million at most to any non english team and 50mil to an english side. Martial on the other hand is 70 million minimum.

    This thread is very bait mind you.

    I've only been on this forum for a short time but it isn't too difficult to work out how things go around here.

    Ole wins a game - Give him 2 years
    Ole loses a game--"told you he was shit."

    Player has a good game- "I think this is the best performance I've seen in the last 10 years"
    Player has a bad game- "told you he was shit."

    I think I may have to look up middle ground in the dictionary to make sure it still exists because it certainly doesn't here.

    If you’re taking all factors into account Pogba is more valuable. After Pogba he’s probably the second most valuable; English, young, years of top flight experience, England international, quite a good player and a long contract. If you’re taking pure ability into account I think Martial and De Gea pip him.

    Rashford, like so many of our other players, is way too inconsistent. He has awful games just as much as good games.
    He doesn't seem to be a very clever footballer either, often not making the right runs to get in deadly spaces.

    So, he is definitely not a great footballer yet. And I feel the thread starter has overrated him.
    But I would have to agree that in this poor squad we have right now, he is probably one of our most important players. I believe Martial is better.

    If we ever become a world-beating side again, Rashford would have to improve manifold to even have a chance of making the starting XI.

    Disagree.
    I'd argue he isn't even the best in his position at the club.

    Great player to have, but not near the talent or player a lot of people seem to think. (in general, not just the caf)

    Back of the net, 100 % agreed.

    I'd say the exact same about Pogba. He was inconsistent at Juventus, and has continued in the same vein here. But a couple of moments of brilliance here and there, and a social media presence/style/flair/whatever, makes him massively overrated among kids and adults that are easily swayed by shallow swagger.

    The best player? Close, but don't think so. Most valuable player? Again probably not.
    But he is a player i would never want to leave United. I'd sell everyone before him.

    He is very hard working, quick and strong, determined, great skills, amazing player in my opinion. His attitude is amazing. And he is our own!

    As a footballer he has an extremely high potential - as a goalscorer, he hasn't.

    He will always work hard, create a lot, score some incredible goals - but he will never be clinical. But because of his quality, because of his ability to create chances he will score 15+ League-goals each season, if he injury-free. So his overall contribution to the team will always be high, but he will never come close to Shearer or Kane in terms of goals.

    Even taking into account recent struggles for form, De Gea's still one of the top 10 in the world in his position, arguably Pogba is too, and a case could be made on his day for Maguire. That's not true yet for anyone else in our squad, much as I rate AWB, Martial, & Rashford.

    As of now, I'd say Pogba and De Gea are the only players who are better than him. It doesn't help him that he has been switching between striker and winger. Rashford is not a natural winger but he has great movement, very good pace and understanding of when and where to run combined with good link up play. However, with his work rate he needs to be a better judge when to press and when not to so he keeps his pace during the game.

    His strong right foot makes him threat from the left side of the box and he attracts alot of attention from the defense which provides opportunity for his team mates around the penalty spot. It would help him if he played with a striker complementing his game in the centre (Haaland?) and a offensive CM making runs into the centre.

    To take the next step, besides improving his finishing, he needs to improve his anticipation and movement in the box. He doesn't get alot of the easy goals.

    He's young, he's quality and he will keep improving.

    Well I don't think he has a goal in him like the one Martial scored vs Partizan or his debut goal vs Liverpool. Martial is more talented and exciting in my book. Despite scoring goals regularly he is having a poor season but it looks like his confidence is improving.

    he's definitely top 3

    I'd probably have Pogba and Martial above him, though

    I would agree Rashford is our most valuable player.

    We don’t have anybody else other than Martial who has the potential to be better.

    Rashford has a huge ceiling

    He's a top 5 player in our squad for sure but we also need to buy players which would bump him out of that top 5 if we want to compete for titles against the best again.

    His fitness & his record in big games [plus some recency bias] would see me agreeing with the OP.

    De Gea & Pogba should be clearly ahead in this debate though.

    Can't see the logic in people denying this and stating Pobga and Martial are clearly our most valuable players. Almost everything that has been good this season from United has come from Rashford.

    He's still not at the level we need, but when he's left in that free role on the left he has more influence on the game than any of our players. Top goalscorer, most assists, pretty much looks our most dangerous player every game. Pogba may be our most talented player, but has never shown the desire Rashford has, nor has Pogba ever played to his potential for a consistent period of time.

    Same goes for both Martial and Rashford really, but if Rashford can produce similar performances to what he produced against Belgrade in the first half, he'll easily become our most valuable player by the end of the season.

    He tore Belgrade to shreds in the first half. If he was a better finisher then he could have scored 3/4. Been a while since we've been able to sit back and watch a player tear a team apart with such ease. Maybe let's focus less on the negatives in his game, and blatantly disregard his potential in favour of players who haven't shown much better in the last couple of seasons, and instead hope the lad does become our most important player and bring his game to the next level.

    Nothing more satisfying than watching a local lad who loves the club in the form he's in. Let's just enjoy it.

    Agree. Rashford only runs and shoot, may be score 1 every 5-6 chances. martial plays the crucial #9 role which Rashford fails, Martial's finishing is also much better, and I rate him (on finishing) better than Greenword. Rashford only better than Martial on mental strength.

    "Best players" in any club are consistent. By that measure neither Rashford nor Pogba are "best" because they are horribly inconsistent. Random games of quality and once-in-a-dozen brilliant goals do not make a footballer "best". No, no, and million times no.

    We are in the shite we are in, exactly because our most talented players are inconsistent and we have a bunch of players that simply aren't good enough. A horrible combination.

    Thank God for Dan James and AWB - they are the reason I watch the games, and also thankful for Maguire, because without him we would be losing every single game and that would suck even more than it does now.

    He actually probably is the most valuable player in terms of a possible transfer fee Utd would receive when he gets sold. Outsiders still rate Rashford pretty highly from what I gather.

    In terms of value, no. Pogba is easily 120 million pounds player.

    Rashford, should be valued at 60 million pounds, but if someone wants him they should pay 100 million and above.

    In terms of abilities...he should be down the pecking order after Pogba, De Gea and Martial.

    I think his ceiling is a lot higher than people are saying to be fair to him. His development is not too different to Bale or Sterling at the same age.

    Think he'd be appreciated more in a better side, with Martial in the side he's already looking better. You could see even Martial was finding it hard to get in the game when Rashford was off. The lack of quality in our squad suffocates our own attack.
