Rashford took to Instagram to thank Cristiano Ronaldo for his gift.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was in his generous mood, sending a pair of his Nike Air Max 97 CR7 shoes to Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.
Ronaldo collaborated with Nike to produce the Air Max sneakers. Known as the 'Portugal Patchwork' design, the new trainers have been designed to pay homage to Ronaldo’s mum who used to patch the forward’s shoes when he was younger.
The trainers carry Ronaldo's CR7 mark on the heel inside a golden sphere.
As the sneakers went on sale, the 33-year-old sent a pair to fellow Nike athlete Rashford.
The Manchester United forward was definitely delighted when he received Ronaldo’s gift.
“Thanks for the gift @cristiano,” the 20-year-old forward wrote alongside a photo of the sneakers on Instagram.
