Marcus Rashford is edging closer to a full return to action with the side after featuring in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Blackburn last week. The 23-year-old has been out of action since the Euro 2020 final against Italy in July.
Rashford sustained a shoulder injury last season but managed it throughout the campaign. He decided to press ahead with plans to go under the knife following this summer’s tournament but is now closing in on a return. Earlier this week, it was revealed that Manchester United wanted Rashford to bulk up after losing muscle mass in his upper half.
Now, his three-month-long road to recovery has been detailed by the publication The Telegraph, who describe Rashford as ‘pain-free’ for the first time in two years – something Manchester United fans will be delighted to hear.
Furthermore, there has been no significant discomfort since he returned to full-contact training, with his determination to return said to be reflected from his long days spent at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground.
