Manchester United have been dealt a huge injury blow ahead of the new Premier League season as they will be without one of their main stars. 

Marcus Rashford will be ruled out of the opening 12 weeks of the 2021/22 campaign, after deciding to undergo surgery on a persistent shoulder problem.

The 23-year-old was forced to play much of last season through the pain barrier, which ultimately caught up with him in the summer after he missed much of Euro 2020 with Gareth Southgate’s England side. 

Rashford is likely to miss at least the opening nine games of the campaign, which includes clashes against Leicester and Liverpool as well as the opening trio of Champions League group fixtures. 

The England star has been carrying the injury for nine months after tearing a muscle in his left shoulder during a clash against Arsenal in November. 

His struggles continued over the course of the season, notching just 11 goals in the league, six short of his tally from the previous campaign.
