Marcus Rashford has sent Jose Mourinho a message and has been working hard preparing for pre-season training on his holiday in Dubai.
He will enjoy a minimum three-week break after his international commitments with England at Euro 2016, but could play a vital role in Man United’s pre-season tour of China.
Mourinho will head to China to face Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai on Friday 22 July, before they fly to Beijing on Monday 25 July for the highly-anticipated Manchester City clash. They will then take a trip to Sweden to play Galatasaray in Gothenburg on Saturday 30 July, before they head to Old Trafford for Wayne Rooney‘s testimonial game on Wednesday 3 August.
Rashford only came on for four minutes in England’s shocking defeat to Iceland, but still completed more dribbles than any of his teammates managed in the previous 86 minutes and was highly praised for his short performance.

His rise to the top has been a fairytale story since his debut in February and it’s hard to believe he is only at the start of his blossoming career.
Rashford has joined several other Man United youngsters including Jesse Lingard, Memphis, Andreas Pereira, Adnan Januzaj and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who have uploaded work of their gym sessions to social media.
He looked extremely comfortable on the first-team last season under Louis van Gaal and I can’t wait to see him alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic under Jose Mourinho next season.
