#3 Anthony Martial (79 goals)

Manchester United have signed some of the finest youngsters in the past. Anthony Martial was touted to be one of them but it does not look that way right now. After an impressive start to his United career, the Frenchman has struggled with his form on a consistent basis.

The former AS Monaco forward was signed under the management of Louis van Gaal and since then has played under two different managers. Jose Mourinho was quite critical of Martial's attitude and with time it looked like he might be right in his opinion.

The French forward has looked lethargic at times and it hasn't bode well with the Manchester United fans. With that being said, in more than six seasons at United, Martial has scored 79 goals for the Red Devils. The tally propels him to third place on this list.


#2 Marcus Rashford (90 goals)

The Premier League is blessed with some amazing English youngsters and Marcus Rashford is right up there with anyone. His off-the-field achievements have been significant and he surely is going to achieve more on the field.

With his blistering pace, quick footwork and knack for scoring goals when desperately needed, Rashford is one of Manchester United's biggest assets. Injuries have marred the speed of his development but he is now fit and raring to go again.

The forward has already scored 90 goals in his Manchester United career and surely he'll be scoring more in the near future. His ability to take on defenders at will is something that will be desperately needed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.


#1 Cristiano Ronaldo (124 goals)

There is no difficulty in predicting Manchester United's current player with the highest number of goals. Cristiano Ronaldo has achieved a lot in his career and it was all triggered by his move to United in 2003.

In his first spell with Manchester United, Ronaldo was a menace going forward, almost unstoppable at times. His mind-boggling dribbling skills, superb speed and brilliant ability to find goals made him a superstar at United. He left the Red Devils in 2009 to play for Real Madrid and has only gone on to achieve bigger things in his career.

He returned to Manchester United this summer and it is a dream come true for most Manchester United fans. Cristiano Ronaldo has so far scored 124 goals in his United career and with two more goals he will be surpassing his current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the goal-scoring charts.
