The 19-year-old attacker sat down with the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain star in a restaurant and managed to get a picture with him.

Rashford posted the image on Instagram with the caption, "Nice to sit down and chat with the king."

While the Manchester United player was happy to meet one of the greatest of all time, Ronaldinho felt a mutual admiration for him and shared the same picture.

"He has quality as a footballer, besides being a good and humble person," the 37-year-old wrote.

Ronaldinho has been out of the game since leaving Fluminense in 2015. 

Still in the early years of his career, Rashford is expected to be a big part of Jose Mourinho's team next season, having made 53 appearances in all competitions last term.
