Who is the fastest player at Manchester United

The Manchester United squad boasts a number of quick players in their attacking lineup and club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has used the pace of his players to devastating effect at times as the fallen giants are in a bid to qualify for the Champions League.

Summer arrival Daniel James made quite a name for himself at the start of the term with his impressive pace much like Marcus Rashfrod did when he first burst onto the scene early in 2016. Both United forwards, Daniel James and Marcus Rashford are renowned for their lethal pace in attack and the duo have combined on four occasions this campaign to produce a goal

There’s been plenty of debate on who among Daniel James and Marcus Rashford is the fastest player at Man United. However, Daniel James has confirmed that he would probably ‘edge it’ while speaking to Sky Sports. James also revealed that Rashford and himself should have a race to settle the long-standing debate.

22-year-old Marcus Rashford believes that the former Swansea winger Daniel is the quicker among the two and while speaking to the United Review, the English forward said that ‘there is no way’ he would race against the Welshman.  Daniel James’ blistering pace has impressed Man United fans in his debut season for the Premier League giants.

Despite the competition between the pair, another prodigy Mason Greenwood clocked a sprint at 37.60 km/h during United’s draw against Everton which is the top speed recorded by the club’s official website. The teenager is then closely followed by Brazilian star Fred, who recorded 37.29 km/h. But Daniel James has recorded the top-speed while playing in 12 of Manchester United’s 29 games this campaign while Marcus Rashford is second on that list with nine instances before suffering a serious lower back problem that ruled him out for the majority of the season.
