He is expected to face six to eight weeks off after the operation, which is expected to take place at the end of the month, meaning he would likely be out until October.

An absence in October could see Rashford miss United’s first seven games of the Premier League season, as well as the first two rounds of the Champions League.

England also have World Cup qualifiers against Hungary x2, Andorra x2 and Poland in September and October.

Rashford is hopeful that the focus can now shift to football, after a few turbulent days since England’s final Euro 2020 defeat to Italy.

After missing a penalty in the shootout, Rashford was the victim of vile racist abuse; a mural in honor of the attacker has been disfigured.

Rashford has received huge public support over the past two days and thanked those who showed up at the mural in Withington to support the 23-year-old.
