Marcus Rashford has reported for Manchester United pre-season training in the best shape of his career ahead of a make or break campaign.

The 24-year-old struggled last season and scored just five goals in all competitions - his lowest total since bursting into the scene in 2016.

Rashford lost his place to Anthony Elanga and he even found himself out of Gareth Southgate's England team.

With new United boss Erik ten Hag on the scene and the World Cup only five months away, Rashford knows he is at a crossroads.

The forward is part of United's summer tour and the squad took part in an open training session in Bangkok this morning.

Rashford looked noticeably bulkier and he has clearly worked on his physique in the break.

Last month, he posted a video of his training regime to Instagram and captioned it: "3 sessions in and feeling good after an amazing break with amazing people. Back to work."

Fans have reacted to Rashford's appearance and they are hoping he can return to his old form.

One person commented: "Let's hope he will get back to his best."

Another said: "Been evident in most of the pre season footage he’s looking in great shape."

A third tweeted: "Hopefully this lifts his confidence."

While someone put: "Redemption season for our boy I can feel it."

United confirmed the signing of Tyrell Malacia last week and are expected to announce Christian Eriksen's arrival soon.

Cristiano Ronaldo's future is still a hot topic however and the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is not on tour with United due to family reasons.

Ronaldo has asked United to accept a 'satisfactory offer' in the coming weeks as he wishes to play in the Champions League.

United finished sixth in the Premier League and will be playing Europa League football next season.

Ten Hag was asked about Ronaldo ahead of Tuesday's friendly with bitter rivals Liverpool and he is confident his star forward will stay at Old Trafford.

He said: "He is not with us due to personal issues. We are planning with Cristiano Ronaldo for this season. That is it.

"I am looking forward to working with him. Cristiano is not for sale. He is in our plans. We want success together."
