Marcus Rashford has returned to training at Carrington as the Manchester United forward steps up his recovery from a shoulder operation this summer.

The 23-year-old has missed United’s first two league games of the season as a result of the operation undertaken to combat his long-standing shoulder injury that has hampered the England star for some years.

Rashford delighted in the outcome of the operation, taking to social media two weeks ago to inform fans that surgery went well, and now United have released footage of the attacker back at Carrington this week.

The Englishman was seen being greeted by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the playing field, with Rashford appearing to update his boss on the status of his shoulder following the operation.

The Red Devil was then seen being put through his paces with a number of running drills before enjoying some ball work in a positive session for the academy graduate.

Solskjaer revealed last weekend that he is hopeful that Rashford will not be too far away from selection, with the United star expected to challenge Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood for a starting berth on the wing.

The Man United attacker appears to talk to the boss about his recent shoulder operation 

‘He seemed very happy with the surgery,’ the Norwegian said after United’s draw at Southampton.

‘He’s working in the gym. We see him every day so he’ll be chomping at the bit when it gets nearer to the time when he can come back.’

Rashford is expected to be fully fit and available in October, with his availability huge for United as they bid to mount a title challenge this campaign.

The Englishman hit 21 goals in all competitions last term and will hope for more of the same

The Red Devils finished second last season behind Manchester City and, bolstered by the £73million arrival of Sancho and the £42m signing of Raphael Varane, will be expected to finally clinch silverware under Solskjaer.

United fell short in the Europa League final last season, losing out on penalties to Unai Emery’s Villarreal in Gdansk, Poland. 

Rashford scored 21 goals in all competitions for United last campaign in a strong showing for the England international.
