Marcus Rashford has been sidelined since the summer after undergoing surgery on his shoulder but Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed when he expects his return.
With the arrival of good friend Jadon Sancho and the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, the 23-year-old faces a battle to regain his place as largely an ever-present in Solskjaer's side.
The Red Devils boss has indicated when the No. 10 will be available for selection, though, who has been an absentee this season like left-back Alex Telles.
“Yeah it’s going well,” he told manutd.com. “They’ve worked really hard, both of them.
“Alex is a bit further on than Marcus. I don’t think we’ll see Marcus until after the international break but Alex has worked well and will be in the squad [for West Ham in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday] as well.”
United's first outing after October international break is a trip to Leicester City, before a trip to Italy in the Champions League for a clash with Atalanta.
It then gets no easier, with matches against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur before facing the Serie A side again followed by the small matter of a Manchester Derby, so having the No. 10 available could prove to be a valuable boost for Solskjaer.
