According to the report, Rashford could decide to have surgery on his shoulder, but he will do so after the European Championship, which starts in June, as he made himself available for selection for the Three Lions squad.
It is believed that his current foot injury was the reason he missed World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.
Despite not fully recovering from both issues, Rashford played in all of United’s last nine Premier League games. He hasn’t played a full 90 minutes since their 1-0 win over West Ham on March 14.

Speaking of Rashford’s recovery, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: ‘Marcus, yes, we managed him and we actually had to manage him for a long time.
‘Of course with his back last year, then he had his shoulders, which he has recovered very well from, and I feel he has been through the worst of this foot as well and he played almost a full game against Leeds.’
Since the start of the 2019/20 season, Rashford has played 93 times and scored 42 goals for the Red Devils.
