Manchester United ace Marcus Rashford has backed Edinson Cavani to be a success at Old Trafford after his deadline day switch. The England international has challenged the Uruguay star to be a ‘massive’ player who can help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer win trophies.
United were linked with a number of strikers in the summer transfer window but in the end it was Cavani who joined.
The former PSG man was a free agent and will compete with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Odion Ighalo to start up front for the Red Devils.
Rashford believes the addition of Cavani puts United in a strong position in terms of their attack.
“As a forward line [Cavani signing] is something to look forward to,” he told Sky Sports.

“Hopefully he comes in and scores goals, because he can definitely help us win games and points. He can be a massive player for us this season.
“To win two or three trophies in a season you need a squad, it’s not possible if you don’t have people who can score goals one week and the next week, it’s just not possible without three or four forwards in a team.
“Growing up, United always had four or five forwards who could score goals at any time. The closer we get to that, the more strength we’ll have.”

Rashford has also told his team-mates they need to bounce back after their heavy 6-1 defeat to Tottenham before the international break.
He added: “This is the opportunity to bounce back. Newcastle is a big game anyway, but this is an even bigger game because of the last result.
“When you lose a game you want another one as soon as possible, you want to get that winning feeling back among the squad.
“Not only do we want to win, we want to win in a way that we can be proud of. We want to work hard, not only for ourselves by for the guy on our left and right and do it as a team.
