Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Marcus Rashford may still not have surgery on the shoulder injury which is threatening to rule him out of the start of the season.

Rashford had a scan on Tuesday and reports claimed it showed the damage was so severe that he must have an operation.

Rashford scored 11 goals in 37 Premier League appearances last season but struggled to make a major impact for England at Euro 2020.
