Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has hopes of returning to the training pitch this week.
In late July, it was decided that Rashford should undergo surgery to clear up a nagging shoulder injury. At the time, the prognosis was for a break of about 12 weeks.
However, the 23-year-old is on track to return sooner than expected. Rashford says he is going for a medical check on Friday.
If things goes well, then he'll be ready to resume full training with United.
Rashford posted to social media: "Happy Monday. I see the doctor on Friday for a consultation. All being well, I will get the green to join in with contact training again."
