Marcus Rashford could make a training comeback at Manchester United by the end of the month, weeks before his expected return date, after his surgery.
Forward Rashford went under the knife two weeks ago to correct an issue with his shoulder, and his impressive recovery has led United to be hopeful of a return soon.
The Sun claim that the 23-year-old may undergo light training inside the next 10 days, with Rashford already working on his build his strength back up.
United are said to be ‘delighted’ with how Rashford has bounced back from the procedure, although their academy graduate is continuing to use a brace.
He gritted his teeth to play through the agony during England’s Euro 2020 campaign, having initially sustained a muscle tear back in November.
It is believed that Rashford is now in less pain, and the same report adds that he is also having two rehabilitation sessions per week.
With a specially-designed programme set for the Three Lions man over the next fortnight, United hope he could be available for selection by the end of September.
Rashford and his club initially set a return date in October, meaning that the latest development is a promising one as United push for the Premier League title.
