Rashford will now be fully focussed on participating in the upcoming Euros as England start their journey on Sunday 13 June, when they face Croatia in the group stages.
The Red Devils will be starting their 2021/22 pre-season campaign in July but the Academy graduate is likely to miss out as he is rumoured to be going under the knife immediately after the Euros to rectify a chronic muscle problem.
