MARCUS Rashford is set for global superstardom after getting the go-ahead to trademark his name in the US.
And the Man United ace, 23, has already been signed up by billionaire hip-hop entrepreneur Jay-Z.
The music and business mogul wants to turn the England star into a Stateside success via his £75million Roc Nation management agency.
Rashford’s lawyers have trademarked his name against a range of products in the US, including clothes, sportswear, grooming products and games.
Jay-Z met the footballer when he travelled to Miami, Florida, in February to watch the SuperBowl as a Nike guest.
Rashford took his brothers Dwaine Maynard and Dane Rashford to the star-studded American-football final.
The pair have guided their sibling’s professional career through their firm DN May Sports Management.
Rashford has made headlines around the world for his free school meals campaigning.
And Jay-Z has said he and his team will manage the player’s off-field branding and philanthropic activities rather than his football career.
The rap artist impressed Rashford with his company’s humanitarian work, explaining how, in exchange for producing the SuperBowl half-time show, the NFL had pledged $100million (£76million) to social justice causes over ten years.
