Rashford: Lukaku joined at the right time

‘It will be a different in the Spanish Cup final’ – Valverde after Barca draw 2-2 with Eibar

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford believes star signing Romelu Lukaku has joined the Red Devils at exactly the right time.

Lukaku has consistently scored Premier League goals over the last four seasons, netting 15 in 2013/14, 10 in 2014/15, 18 in 2015/16, and a career-best 25 last season. 

Rashford believes the timing of the 24-year-old's transfer from Everton to United has come at just the right moment, with the striker firing on all cylinders.

"He's gone through a phase in his career now and he's coming up to his prime years and he has been scoring a lot of goals for the last three or four years," Rashford said, according to Sky Sports.

"I think he is in a good place in his career and he has probably come here at the right time."
