With no certainty of new forwards coming to the club, his expected departure will leave a big reliance on Marcus Rashford to provide the goals and to lead the line for United next season.

Therefore based on his performances last season ranked against other top Premier League strikers, can we gauge if he is ready to be the main forward at United next season?

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku looks to be edging closer to a move away from Old Trafford with Inter Milan's sporting director Piero Ausilio arriving in London this week to discuss a transfer for the Belgium international.

The subpar performances by Lukaku throughout the course of the campaign opened the door for Rashford to make the centre-forward role his own last season.

Firstly, looking at league goals, we know Rashford netted ten last season, that ranked him 19th in the scoring charts for Premier League strikers.

Additionally, he did outperform his Expected Goals total (xG) of 8.82.

Notably, 11 of United’s league games last season were either a draw or a one-goal margined defeat.
