Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are having the best bromance in the world of football. Though the two players are not age mates, the fact that they play together at Manchester United and in England national team has given them the room to create a kind of unbroken bond.
To perfectly get how different Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are, it would interest you to know that Lingard is five years older than Rashford. Lingard is currently 29-year-old while Rashford is 24-year-old. But you can hardly notice that when they are together.
One of the biggest similarities between the two players is that they are both products of the Manchester United youth system. But they did not join the system at the same period.
For instance, Lingard was in the Manchester United youth system between 2007 and 2008. While Rashford joined the system between 2015 and 2016.
Also, the two players broke into Manchester United senior team in different eras. Lingard broke into Manchester United senior team on July 1, 2014. While Rashford broke into the club’s senior team on January 1, 2016.
Unlike Lingard that has gone on loan to clubs like Birmingham, Brighton, Derby County, and West Ham United, Rashford has never been sent on loan since he broke into the club’s senior team.
On the international scene, Lingard made his international debut on October 8, 2016. Since then, he has played 32 times and scored 6 goals for the Three Lions of England.
As for Rashford, the 24-year-old winger made his international debut on May 27, 2016. Since then, he has played 46 times in which he scored 12 goals for England’s national team.
Despite the differences between Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, they are the closest pair at Old Trafford and indeed in England’s national team.
The two players have shared some loving moments which they have shared with their followers on social media, especially via Instagram stories. One of such moments was a clip showing Rashford shaving Rashford’s hair.
They have also been filmed engaging in some random play which proved that whatever exists between the two players started even before the fame.
Recently, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard took themselves to Dubai to enjoy the winter holiday together. Rashford’s childhood lover, Lucia, was also there with them as they continued to flaunt their bromance.
Before then, the two Manchester United stars have been firmed and pictured at different events having some enviable time together.
Unfortunately for Rashford, Lingard might leave him at Old Trafford next summer if Manchester United are not able to extend his contract before it expires on June 30, 2022.
