Man Utd to decide if Rashford will undergo shoulder surgery

Manchester United are set to decide whether Marcus Rashford will go under the knife and risk being sidelined for months.

The striker had a scan earlier this month to determine the severity of the muscle tear in his shoulder he has been managing since last November.

Rashford, 23, took pain-killing injections to ensure he was available for the Euros.

But after the problem failed to improve, he could now be set for surgery that could rule him out for at least the opening two months of the Premier League campaign.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now said he will decide in the next few days whether the ace will have the shoulder operation.

He said: “With Marcus, we’ll make a decision in the next few days, check him again.

“What’s best for him and the club has to be considered.”

Rashford was subjected to vile racist abuse earlier this month after he missed a crucial penalty for England in the Euro 2020 Final shootout defeat to Italy.

He received a huge outpouring of support in the aftermath with Red Devils fans looking forward to his return.

Solskjaer also has a number of other decisions to make before they kick-off the season at home to Leeds on August 14.

He will look at teenager winger Amad Diallo’s short-term future after he returns from Olympic duty with Ivory Coast.

Meanwhile, Axel Tuanzebe could be heading out on loan to Newcastle while Raphael Varane is finally on the verge of signing from Real Madrid.

And there could also be good news on the injury front.
