Sun 18 July 2021 | 18:39

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Manchester United have not yet decided whether Marcus Rashford will undergo shoulder surgery before the start of the new season.

Marcus Rashford

has been dealing with the problem since the beginning of the last season and he was not completely fit during England’s Euro 2020 campaign.

The 23-year-old is now on holiday after the tournament and while he had been expected to have an operation on his shoulder the manager said the club have not made a decision over the issue.

"No, we're looking at the best options,"


said after United's 2-1 friendly win over

Derby County

when asked if surgery was needed for Rashford


"Of course, he went away just to reflect on it a little bit. We have to take the best course of action for him and the club.

"We're still addressing that with the experts."

While Rashford could be away in the early weeks of the season, Jesse Lingard looks set to fill in the void for United.

Jesse Lingard

appeared in the second half for United at Pride Park having returned following his successful loan spell at

West Ham

in the second half of last season.

"Jesse has come back, he's been bright and he wants to fight for his place,"

Solskjaer said.

"There's nothing better than seeing players willing to fight for their place. Of course, what he did towards the end of the season, that is the true Jesse.

"That's what we know he is capable of. I think we saw towards the end [of our own season] that we lacked maybe some options at times."
