Marcus Rashford missed pre-season due to plans to address a bothersome shoulder and will miss a large chunk of this season, having gone under the knife earlier this month.
The 23-year-old sustained the injury as far back as late 2020 but continued to feature regularly for his club, postponing any intervention until after this summer’s European Championship.
Now, in a huge boost to the club, the tricky winger is said to be making ‘steady progress’ on his recovery from the surgery and is having rehab sessions two times per week.
That’s according to The Sun, who also claim that Manchester United are hopeful of returning to action next month, weeks before his estimated return date.
Rashford could start light training in the next ten days and is in less pain than previously but, as things stand, is still restricted by a shoulder brace.
The versatile forward, who scored over 20 goals in both of the full campaigns under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will now be on a special programme as the club continues to map out a return.
