And the Red Devils want him to stay available for as long as possible.

As a result they will look to him to do some serious work in the gym, according to the Mail.

Rashford is available for selection against Leicester on Saturday,

The 23-year-old gained four kilos of lower body muscle during his rehab but has dropped mass in his upper body as a result of his restricted shoulder movement.

The Red Devils think additional muscle mass up top may help to fend off injury in the future.

This recent lay-off is not Rashford’s first having taken five months to recover from a double back fracture last year.

And then, after playing through the pain for nearly a year, the England ace had shoulder surgery in the summer.

Having had another lengthy spell on the sidelines, Rashford is back and scored twice in a warm up friendly against Blackburn last week.

He hasn’t played competitively since the Euros in August.

And Rashford is up against some serious talent and will look to shift Jadon Sancho or Mason Greenwood from United’s starting XI.

Rashford recently said: “My recovery is – I wouldn’t say coming to an end because obviously I have to keep looking after it – but I’m in a much better place physically and mentally.

“Last year was a very long season for me, I got this injury at the end of September and gradually it got that little bit worse, but now I’m fully free of that, I feel much better physically and mentally.”
