Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are attending Dior Men’s fashion event in London

Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are both used to pulling on the same jersey and representing the same team, whether it is Manchester United or England, but the duo were seen repeating a different type of brand on Thursday.

During some downtime in the capital, Rashford and Lingard were seen dressed from head to toe in Dior clothing as they attended one of the fashion brand’s first menswear events ever in London this week.

After spending some time on the show that hosted the Kensington Olympia, the United couple chatted with some friends before leaving the venue.

Rashford and Lingard both have a keen interest in fashion, with the former wearing a Burberry suit to receive his MBE at Windsor Castle last month.

Lingard, meanwhile, as its own clothing line, JLINGZ, offering fans a more affordable selection of casual attire and accessories.

Rashford got a free night this week as Ralf Rangnick’s men welcomed the Young Boys to Old Trafford for their final group game match in the Champions League.

Lingard, on the other hand, played 89 minutes in midfield, where he would have hoped to have impressed the club’s new interim boss.

Both will be in contention for this weekend’s trip to Norfolk, where United take on Norwich in the Premier League.

While Rashford is more likely to start, Lingard’s efforts in the Champions League would have hoped to persuade Rangnick to consider him as a midfield option, given how the German reportedly criticized the club’s midfield options during his job interview.

According to ESPN, Rangnick reportedly told the Manchester United seniors that their midfield was’ weak ‘during his interview and earmarked RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara, Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham and Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips as potential goals in the transfer window.

United are willing to back Rangnick in the January transfer window, but both manager and club expect it to be fairly quiet, with players leaving the club higher on the agenda.

Bellingham have emerged as a target for a number of Premier League teams since breaking out at Birmingham before switching to Dortmund, where he continues to shine.

United also sent scouts to see Haidara alongside Leizpig in recent weeks, with the 23-year-old understood to have a £ 33m release clause.

Leeds star Phillips is set for an extended period on the sidelines with Leeds, with the Englishman out with a hamstring injury, which could cause him to fall on United’s wish list for the time being.

Rangnick’s criticism of United’s ‘weak’ midfield is nothing new.

Their current double midfield pivot of Scott McTominay and Fred, known online as ‘McFred’, has been criticized in recent months, with the pair often being blamed for the club’s shortcomings under Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The Norwegian, who was fired as the club’s manager last month, favored the duo but was the target of the blame every time United lost.

Rangnick started McTominay and Fred in his first match as temporary boss – a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last Sunday – and was pleased with their contribution, while still noting that there was plenty of room for improvement.

‘They made one or two or three mistakes, especially in the first half there were two square passes; one from Scott, one from Fred, Rangnick said.

‘I do not like that kind of balls in midfield at those positions. But in general, when the other team is in possession of the ball, both Fred and Scotty, they are almost perfect for that kind of football. ‘

In addition to improving the team with additional midfield recruits, Rangnick expressed his desire to work with the team’s academy and help find the next Rashford or Mason Greenwood.

ESPN went on to claim that promoting young people from the club’s academy was seen as a major positive from Rangnick’s interview with Murtough and Woodward.

The German boss made his debut for teenage duo Charlie Savage and Zidane Iqbal in United’s last Champions League group stage match against Young Boys on Wednesday, which ended in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
