The England international scored the opener in the Red Devils’ 2-0 victory over Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.
And Darmian has sung the praises of his 19-year-old colleague, insisting his all-round game will make him one of the best in the world.
“I think Marcus is a great player,” Darmian said. “He is still very, very young and I think he is very important for us.
“With his quality, he can be one of the top players, one of the most important players in the world.
“I think he is very good in every part of the game, he has a very good shot, movement, speed.
“Sometimes for a striker, it is a normal there is a not as good period [in terms of scoring goals] but I hope he continues like this, because it helps the team to reach the objective.”

Jose Mourinho speaks after Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea
Rashford has scored nine goals this season bettering his total of eight last season and putting pressure on Jose Mourinho to give him more game time.
An excellent display in last week’s Europa League quarter-final first leg may also push the Portuguese to keep Rashford in his starting line-up.
