Rashford undergoes surgery and will miss Manchester United until October

England international Marcus Rashford may miss the first two months of the new season with Manchester United after opting to undergo surgery to treat a long-standing shoulder problem.

The England international has been playing with the pain of a shoulder injury since the end of last year, and he underwent a test on Tuesday, and the examination showed that the problem had not worsened, but Rashford is concerned that the injury has not improved over the past nine months.

According to the newspaper, "The Telegraph", Rashford prefers to undergo surgery this summer in an attempt to reduce and overcome the injury that afflicted him.

Rashford is expected to face six to eight weeks off action after the surgery, which is due at the end of the month, meaning he will likely be out until October.

United start their Premier League campaign at Old Trafford against Leeds United on August 14.

A absence until October could result in Rashford missing from Manchester United's first seven games in the Premier League, as well as the opening two rounds of the Champions League.

Rashford received great support from the public in the past two days, after he was subjected to racism by some English fans, after he missed a penalty kick in the Italy match in the Euro 2020 final, which the Azzurri won 3-2 in his favour.
