Marcus Rashford offers to become a global superstar by using his name as a trademark in America, reports said.
The Manchester United star was announced last month to have signed with American rap star Jay-Z’s sports agency Roc Nation.
But The sun now claim that the 22-year-old has submitted official documents that would allow him to market hundreds of products.

The report adds that the product marketed can range from deodorants and shaving gel to binoculars, sports bags and computer games.
The same outlet claims that the filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office has been accepted and will be published Tuesday in the U.S. Trademark Official Gazette.
The application will then be approved, unless someone with an objection lodges a complaint within 30 days.
The news comes on the heels of the United star who received an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester this summer for his campaign against child poverty.

Rashford partnered with the charity FareShare to raise £ 20 million for food donations during the coronavirus pandemic and also helped convince the government to extend their food voucher system for children over the summer holidays with free school meals.
Before joining the impressive Roc Nation customer base in April, his career was led by his brothers Dwaine Maynard, 36, and Dane Rashford, 27, through their sports management company.
His brothers will continue to pursue his football career – after carefully guiding his career over the past four and a half years and negotiating the signing of a new contract 12 months ago – while an offshoot of Roc Nation will deal with his off-field activities.

Jay-Z also flew with the trio to Miami for the Super Bowl 2020 that took place in February.
Roc Nation was founded in 2013 by American rap star and entrepreneur Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter, who opened offices in the UK in December.
The company’s clients include Rashford’s team-mate Eric Bailly and his former striker Romelu Lukaku – now with Inter Milan – as well as Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne, Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings and South Africa’s world cup winning captain Siya Kolisi.
