Manchester United's Marcus Rashford says he feels "10 times better" than he did at the start of the month.

The England striker is nearing a return to full fitness after suffering a double stress fracture to his back in January.

Rashford says he'll have another scan next week but things "are looking positive" and that he expects to step up his recovery soon.

"I feel much better. I have a scan in another couple of days and that should solidify it, but I feel much better compared to two or three weeks ago," the 22-year-old told Sky Sports News.

"I feel 10 times better now. For me, now it's just about getting ready to build up back up to training and then playing games for the team.

"I'm in a much better place. I'm much happier than I was about a month ago so things are looking positive.

"I've just been in my house doing my gym work and recovery, reading books, watching Netflix and just doing what I can do to make the time pass further.

"There's not really anything you can do that comes close to being in the changing room and being in the team, so I'm not trying to chase that high.

"I had to have time off anyway because of my injury but I'm fortunate enough to have a bike in the gym downstairs. Not much in that sense has actually changed for me because I can still do my daily routine that I was doing."
