Asked what set him apart from Sancho, Rashford added: “ He’s playing the headlines, he’s creative, imaginative, I think those are the things you have to do to be world class. ”
United and Chelsea are both chasing Sancho, but are unwilling to meet Dortmund’s valuation of more than £ 100 million, although the Old Trafford club is willing to offer near that.
United is said to have been in contact with the Sancho agent, but is hesitant to submit a formal approach, particularly due to the uncertainty of the transfer window due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand believes Old Trafford would be the perfect place for Sancho and has also urged his former club to step up for Tottenham forward Harry Kane who may be leaving in summer he failed to secure the Champions League next season.
Speaking on his own questions and answers, Ferdinand said: “ I want Jadon to go to a team where he will play, improve and get trophies.
“ He has been linked to United, Chelsea, PSG, but I think United is where he should go because I am biased.
“Rashford, Martial, Kane, Sancho, who would intimate a lot of central halves before a whistle blows. Absolutely.’
The duo are teammates with England and may soon unite on the club stage
