Marcus Rashford Fitness Update Emerges Ahead Of New Season

A decision is set to be made in the next few days whether Marcus Rashford will have surgery on a persistent shoulder injury.

The forward has been playing through the pain barrier having suffered a muscle tear last season and is keen to go under the knife to have it repaired.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted the decision to have surgery to fix his shoulder issue, which would rule him out for at least a couple of months, to be best for Rashford and for Manchester United.

“With Marcus, we'll probably make a decision in next few days when we check him up, the last decision-making, what's best for him and best for the club has to be considered,” said Solskjaer.

United will have a squad back in training on Monday, less than two weeks before the season begins against Leeds United on August 14, and Solskjaer is unclear how the fitness levels of those players will be.

“For the boys who've not come back yet, I've not got a Scooby-Doo how they are fitness-wise, everyone's due in for training Monday, then it's three weeks since their last game, Fred in the Copa America and the English finalists, so we'll see how they are because it's down to them what they've done during the holidays as well,” said Solskjaer.
