And Marcus Rashford is certainly not holding back when it comes to romantic rendezvous as he is said to have forked out a whopping £240,000 to rent a plane to New York for himself and his soon-to-be wife.
The Manchester United footballer, 25, chartered a Boeing 737 to whisk away his partner to New York City for a romantic break.
And the plane, which costs a whopping £240,000, can normally carry over 125 passengers.
A source told The Mirror that Marcus is ‘loved up’ and that renting the plane was a ‘grand gesture’.

Marcus and Lucia enjoyed their trip to the Big Apple last month after Marcus was ruled out of England’s games due to an injury.
The footballer made sure to document his much-needed trip by sharing a few snaps with his fellow followers.
In one particular snap, the happy couple could be seen posing in front of a fountain in the famous Central Park.
Marcus and Lucia met at school in Greater Manchester when they were just 15.
And the soon-to-be newlyweds revealed that they were engaged last May.
Lucia has been seen supporting Marcus at football games over the years, including during the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and has been seen in the stands at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
However, some fans have recently criticised the timing of the couple’s trip while the three Lions played the Euro Qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine.
Boss Gareth Southgate, 52, quickly come to Marcus’s defence and said ‘Once Marcus is ruled out of the squad, it’s entirely up to him how he spends his time.’

The trip to New York comes after Marcus – the top scorer this season with 28 goals – injured himself again and limped off the football pitch after a recent match against Everton.
The footballer, who joined United’s youth set-up aged seven, now reportedly earns £200,000 a week.
And in recent years during the pandemic, the legend launched a campaign to feed the most vulnerable children in society.
