Rashford awarded number 10 jersey.

Rashford, who has returned from his post-World Cup break to start against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, has had his squad number bumped up for a second time

Although United are yet to confirm their squad numbers for the new campaign, they have announced Rashford’s switch to 10. Zlatan Ibrahimovic inherited Wayne Rooney’s number 10 a year ago but only managed seven games with it before he moved to the LA Galaxy in March. Rooney wore the 10 for 10 years.

Mark Hughes and David Beckham are the only previous United academy graduates to sport the number 10 since squad numbers became fixed in the Premier League 1993. Teddy Sheringham and Ruud van Nistelrooy also excelled as United number 10s.
