“I used to love to watch @LuisNani,” wrote Rashford on his official Twitter account.
“He was one of the only ones who could knuckle ball.”
Nani is currently playing in Major League Soccer with Orlando City and the Portuguese forward was quick to appreciate the respect shown by Marcus.
He replied with an invitation that has excited supporters, saying:
“Thanks mate. We’ve got to do a shoot around together sometime.”
Rashford’s response of
“Bro, you know where I am” and Nani’s sign-off of
“You can count on it” offers hope of a legendary hook-up in the future.
Perhaps at the Aon Training Complex one day?
