Marcus Rashford has revealed he hopes to link back up with former Manchester United team-mate Angel Gomes in the future following the wonderkid’s departure from Old Trafford in the summer.

After making a total of 10 appearances for the Red Devils, the 20-year-old rejected a lucrative new contract offer from United as he ended a 14-year spell with the club.

In search of more regular game time in the long-term, Gomes moved on to Lille, who loaned him out to Portuguese side Boavista for the 2020/21 campaign.

The midfielder has scored three goals this season, including a wonder strike from the halfway line against Moreirense last month.

And United forward Rashford lavished praise on his former team-mate and admitted the two still keep in regular contact.

‘It’s a pleasure to talk about him, I think he’s doing very well at Boavista,’ Rashford told A Bola.

‘We speak regularly on the phone and I’ve congratulated him several times. It’s a good sign. He scored that incredible midfield goal that went viral. A great goal really! But with his talent nothing surprises me.

‘He has incredible skill. Whoever plays alongside him realises he’s an exciting talent. Having trained with him since a very young age, it’s easy to see his success and to predict his bright future.’

He added: ‘Having him train with us at that time was a great experience and opportunity. I remember that during training he faced us all without fear, always anxious to have the ball.

‘There are many things that unite us, we have had similar growth experiences.

‘We lived in the same club houses and were in the same development system, aimed at selected players. We always got along very well.

‘We lived together for about three years. I was able to provide guidance on my first experiences with the first team. This advice is still there, like he’s a younger brother.

‘He has everything to reach the top. I always tell him. He’s an attacking midfielder, but personally I see him as someone who advances on the pitch comfortable with the ball.

‘So he can play in other positions with equal success. It’s easy to play with him.

‘It was something very natural, because he’s always looking for a quick pass, which surprises defenders and creates opportunities to score. I can thank him for a lot of goals.’

And Rashford revealed that it is his wish to be reunited with Gomes at some point in his career.

The England international continued: ‘He’s a great team player and one of the things that I most hope will happen is to play with him again. It’s a wish that I trust will come true.’
