Manchester United will face an anxious wait this summer after it was revealed that Marcus Rashford is expected to have surgery on at least one of his injuries after this summers European Championships. The forward has powered through the season through a number of problems but is set to be assessed before the start of next season.
Rashford missed the first six months of 2020 with a hairline fracture in his back but made a return to the team in Project Restart and returned to form. But not long into the following season, the 23-year-old suffered a shoulder injury which he has been carrying for the entirety of the 2020/21 campaign.
It was believed that Rashford could play on for the rest of the season but after another injury, this time to his ankle in March, training appearances were rarer and he could only take part in matchdays without preparation.
And it’s not reported by The Mirror that Rashford is expected to have surgery on at least one of his injuries after the Euro’s. The suggestion that Rashford should pull out of the tournament has never been in consideration but should England go as far as to the final, United fear that their star academy graduate could miss the start of next season, which is due to commence on August 14.
England and Gareth Southgate are heavily reliant on Rashford and he is likely to be a key figure for the Three Lions but involvement until the middle of July could now hamper Solskjær’s preparations.
