The 18-year-old has been a revelation since making his debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League round of 32, scoring six goals in 11 games across all competitions.

Rashford scored a sublime goal in the Red Devils' 2-0 win over West Ham United in the FA Cup quarterfinals and has now drawn comparisons to Ronaldo's early days at Old Trafford.

"You can't compare apples with pears, we have to wait and see," Van Gaal said at his press conference.

"It is fantastic what Marcus has done so far, but you cannot compare him with Ronaldo, who also played in a different position.

"He was not a striker when he was at Manchester United, I believe."
