Manchester United want Marcus Rashford to build muscle mass to limit the chance of further injury as the attacker is ready to return.
Rashford will be available for the first time this season against Leicester City on Saturday, following shoulder surgery in August.
The 23-year-old added 4kg of muscle to his lower body as he worked his way back to full fitness. But due to limited mobility in his left shoulder, Rashford has lost muscle mass in his upper body.

United believe that if he gets bigger, he has a better chance of meeting the physical demands of the Premier League and staying injury-free going forward.
Rashford was previously hampered by a double back fracture, which took him five months to recover from last year.
He opted for surgery this summer on his troublesome shoulder injury, after playing with pain for nearly a year. He now appears to be in good shape, scoring twice in a closed-door friendly against Blackburn last week.
Rashford has not played a competitive game since the European Championship but will now increase Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wealth of attacking options.
