Marcus Rashford will wait until the end of Euro 2020 to decide whether to have shoulder surgery.
The 23-year-old, who is currently on international duty with England at Euro 2020, is considering going under the knife after breaking through the pain barrier with the injury since November.
At the time, the forward tore a muscle in his left shoulder, but postponed the decision to undergo surgery until the tournament ended.
The forward, who has yet to start a game for England at the tournament, could miss Manchester United’s start to the Premier League season if he decides to undergo the surgery.
“It’s either an operation or I am not getting an operation,” he said.
“I’m not 100% sure I need it yet, so I’ll take it as it comes. I’ll end up strong here and have a few weeks off to just relax and decide what I’m going to do. “
Any subsequent surgery and rehabilitation following England’s participation in this summer’s tournament could make him questionable for Man United’s Premier League opener at home against Leeds United on August 14.
On potential delays, Rashford added: “The doctors haven’t said yet. The reason I don’t know is that when the season was going on, and before I came here, I knew he wasn’t. There was no way I would get the operation, so I didn’t know how long the operation was going to put me out.
“I’m fully focused here. When the tournament is over, I’ll ask the question.”
Rashford then admitted he hadn’t been at his best for England so far in this tournament, but didn’t blame his injury issues for his current form.
“Obviously I’m not giving my best and I know I can do it,” said Rashford.
“Either way, it doesn’t really matter because it’s been going on since the start of the season. I’ve managed to get through the season with United.
“I think I had 36 goals so I can’t go back over the year and say ‘mmm, I should have taken the time to do this and do that.’ It’s just not my way. to see things. I just want to be available for every game. “
