Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will reportedly miss the start of the upcoming Premier League season after deciding to have surgery on a shoulder injury.

The 23-year-old, who was part of England's Euro 2020 squad, is expected to be out for around 12 weeks, the BBC reported.

Rashford had suffered with a shoulder problem during the latter part of the season and he had only a limited role with England during their run to the final.

The forward was one of three England players, along with Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, to miss penalties during the shootout defeat to Italy at Wembley on Sunday.

All three players were the targets of online racist abuse that drew wide condemnation from the squad's captain, manager, royalty, religious leaders and politicians.

The striker's absence is bound to hamper manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's preparation and start to the new campaign at Old Trafford.
