Manchester United have confirmed that Marcus Rashford will undergo shoulder surgery and will not be available for at least two months.

A United statement read: "

Following consultation between Marcus, the manager, club medical staff and specialists, Marcus will undergo surgery imminently to resolve his shoulder injury

.

"He will now focus on his rehabilitation in order to return as soon as possible."

Last month, Rashford acknowledged that shoulder pain prevented him from performing well in the second half of the 2020-21 season.

"

Obviously I am not performing at my best and what I know I can perform to,"

the United academy graduate said three weeks ago.

"Whatever that is down to, it doesn't really matter because it has been going on since early on in the season. I managed to get through the season with United.

"I think I had 36 goal involvements, so I can't look back at the year and say 'mmm, I should have taken time off to do this and do that'. That's just not the way I look at things. I just want to be available for every game."

Asked if there is a physical reason, he said on England duty: "

I don't think that's a secret, to be honest with you

.

"I think it's quite well known and to get to this stage where I am now, it was a massive aim of mine back at the beginning of the season.

"So, like I said, I'm happy, I'm prepared mentally and physically for the games."
