This is a huge loss for Man Utd, with Rashford putting together some of his best form for the club’s first-team this season with 19 goals in 31 games in all competitions this term.
It’s hard to see how United will replace Rashford on the pitch, with signings surely needed this January to ensure they don’t have to rely on just Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood in the months ahead.
Still, off the pitch, Rashford has made it clear he still wants to attend team meetings and be involved with his team-mates even when not playing.
Here are his tweets below, which are bound to go down well with MUFC supporters…
Blink and I'll be back, fitter than ever. See you soon ?? #GGMU pic.twitter.com/EejJR1wTrX
