Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has been carrying a troubling shoulder injury since January and Manchester United have confirmed that the 23-year-old will perform a surgery on it this summer.

Rashford’s form was below par last season as he was hampered by fitness issues during the second half of the campaign. He had chosen to delay surgery in order to give himself a chance of representing his country.

Rashford was barely used by Gareth Southgate during the Euros, and he’s now set to undertake the surgery.

Manchester United released a statement today which reads: “Following consultation between Marcus, the manager, club medical staff and specialists, Marcus will undergo surgery imminently to resolve his shoulder injury.

“He will now focus on his rehabilitation in order to return as soon as possible.”

Rashford is now expected to miss the first three months of next season.
