As breakthrough season's go, this one hasn't been half bad.

Marcus Rashford's star continues to shine brightly as the teenage revelation scored his seventh goal in 12 games yesterday, keeping Manchester United's slim Champions League hopes alive and relegating Aston Villa in the process. 

While dominating headlines since his debut in England, he has apparently made quite an impression across the Atlantic too as none other than Jay Z's Roc Nation sports agency wish to sign up the tyro. 

The rap mogul is said to be quite keen on the 18-year-old joining his young company, according to the Sun, who have the likes of boxer and unbeaten super middleweight champion Andre Ward and Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng on their books. 

Rashford is set to be rewarded with a new contract this Summer, believed to be worth around £15,000 a week. 

Scoring a double on your debut in Europe, then another double against Arsenal on your Premier League debut against Arsenal, a Manchester derby winner, relegating a Premier League ever present and now wanted by a global superstar. 

Like I said, not a half bad breakthrough season.
