Rashford received a pair of red Nike Air Max 97 CR7 trainers earlier this month from the Portuguese and is now able to toast FA Cup semi-final success over Tottenham on Saturday with his personally signed Madrid shirt.
Speaking to the Telegraph last year, Rashford said of Ronaldo: “I used to watch a lot of him growing up, all of his games. He was a top player who won a lot of things in his career, so when you know he’s saying good things about you then it really stands out.
“I watched all those clips on YouTube and the first-ever game that I saw live, he was playing in it. It was at Old Trafford and I always remember it. It was in 2003. He scored a hat-trick.”

This Ronaldo better not lure Rashford over to fucking Real Madrid with all these gifts!
Don't like this one bit.
Leave it to gifts. He's going to be a United legend, let it stay that way!

Why's Ronaldo flirting with Rashford incessantly? Someone at Madrid had a word?
