Rashford has set the scene alight on every scene, amazingly in his debut appearances!
First, he scored against FC Midtjylland in his Europa League debut, then netted two against Arsenal in his Premier League debut, scored against Man City in his first derby game. He wasn’t done there, more recently netting his first Champions League goal against Basel FC.
Internationally, he has also taken that by the scruff of the neck, a great statistic being VS Iceland, in the disaster Euro’s tournament, Rashford came on with 4 minutes to go and achieved better statistics than the rest of the England squad who had played the previous 86.
He really is the Boy Wonder for Club & Country. It’s crazy to think he’s only 19. Definitely a long term hold!
He is the best player in his age category on the Index.
Rashford is destroying records at the age of 19. To think he has 10+ years left is terrifying!
Media & Performance
As he’s English he’s in a great position for both dividend payouts.
Position not Cemented
He is not the finished article yet, so don’t expect 90 mins per game.
Reasons to Buy Rashford
Rashford really is a long term investment, he career really has only just begun yet he has already achieved so much. At 19, he is regularly starting games and worst case scenario he’s on the bench! There are 20-25 year olds that can’t even make the bench on a single occasion, so this shows just how good Rashford is!
As he has a bright future and is English, this naturally brings lots of media attention. Media attention equals Media Buzz points, which Rashford will pick up lots of during his career. Playing for the biggest football club in the world will only excel his Media attention too!
As he progresses as a footballer he should also earn great sums of Performance Buzz dividends, he is showing signs that he’s the type of player that will be involved in build up play aswell as scoring goals, which is great for racking up buzz points.
He’s currently priced at £4, the 10th most expensive player on the Index. I feel that he may not grow in price for some time, as lots of this is money for Media Buzz or for his potential. However, when he does start to peak, his price will rise and I can see Rashford being £6+ within 3 seasons.
Potential Reasons to Avoid
Rashford is currently £4, which does seem quite high as he’s not yet getting full game time and he is only 19. This may be because traders are getting their money in early, as he’s showing signs of being better than Harry Kane who is almost 6 years older and trading at £6.50!
The Issue with purchasing Rashford at £4 is that, short term, you aren’t going to get lots back for your investment. Currently, Jose Mourinho is rotating Martial & Rashford, probably to protect them as they are so young! The problem with rotating is that they get limited minutes to earn buzz points, it would be perfect if you got scored on a points per minute type scenario, but that’s not the case. As he is competing with the likes of Lewandowski, Neymar, Messi who will rarely get substituted, Rashford needs 90 minutes to be able to compete with the big boys!
Also, Internationally, I believe it will be hard for Rashford to mount a challenge with Harry Kane for Media Buzz. During International Breaks, they both score fantastic Media Buzz scores, but Harry Kane always tends to be one step ahead, maybe as he’s already near his peak and is England Team Captain.

Rashford is most definitely a fantastic investment for traders who are willing to stick with him long term. He’s still growing as a footballer, so won’t be given a full 90 minutes week in, week out, but long term this will benefit him. Reference Wayne Rooney, who peaked at around 20 and was losing it by around 27!
Long term he offers great value, as he will grow into an England great. Most fans are already relying on him to turn on the magic, which speaks volumes about him as a player!
Verdict; Long Term Hold, 3+ Years. Expected Price £6.
