The Dutchman, who made more than 180 appearances for Barcelona, told Sport360: "I like Marcus Rashford, a lot. It will be really difficult to get him over. But he is a good player.

"I don't see a lot of players who can play in Barcelona. [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, perhaps he can play.

"There is not a lot. Maybe some players who can play in La Liga, young players. But, for me, I think the best one is Marcus Rashford."

He added: "I think so. He has got the skills, the attitude, he's quick, he's fast, he can score goals. He is not always in the first XI at Manchester United and maybe he wants to change club. So, why not?"
