United are said to be ‘delighted’ with how Rashford has bounced back from the procedure, although their academy graduate is continuing to use a brace.

With a specially-designed programme set for the Three Lions man over the next fortnight, United hope he could be available for selection by the end of September.
Rashford and his club initially set a return date in October, meaning that the latest development is a promising one as United push for the Premier League title.

He was notably struggling with the issue after sustaining the muscle tear back in November
After England’s heart-breaking defeat by Italy on penalties at Wembley, which saw Rashford miss a spot-kick, he admitted he struggled on and off the field last season.
Last month, he underwent a scan on his shoulder in Liverpool, which revealed that the damage was unlikely to get worse.
He was keen to fix the problem once and for all, however, having required painkilling injections to turn out last season.
