Marcus Rashford underwent surgery last month to try and resolve a long-term shoulder issue; the England forward posted on Twitter: “I see the doctor on Friday for a consultation. All being well, I will get the green [light] to join in with contact training again.”
Marcus Rashford is hopeful of a return to contact training soon as the Manchester United forward continues his recovery from shoulder surgery.
Rashford is yet to play this season, having undergone an operation on his shoulder last month.
The 23-year-old posted on Twitter: “Happy Monday. I see the doctor on Friday for a consultation.
“All being well, I will get the green [light] to join in with contact training again.”
Having played with a shoulder issue for much of last season, Rashford decided after being part of England’s Euro 2020 campaign that he would have surgery.
The operation took place on August 6, with Rashford saying four days later that “everything went well”.
He has missed eight matches in all competitions so far this term for United, who suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday against Aston Villa.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side host Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday before Everton visit Old Trafford three days later.
Rashford also missed England World Cup qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra and Poland earlier this month.
England boss Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad on Thursday for the matches against Andorra and Hungary on October 9 and 12.
United then return to action by away to Leicester City on October 16.
