Rashford scored on his Red Devils return at Wolves but Southgate, who has other attacking options in Jack Grealish, Phil Foden and James Maddison, is monitoring the behaviour of his stars ahead of Euro 2024.

Southgate said: “We’re five weeks away from picking a squad. So much happens to players over the period between November and March that we’re always sitting and observing everything on and off the pitch.

“In a few weeks’ time we’ll have decisions to make on the whole squad and there’s going to be a lot of attention on that because it’s the final squad before the Euros.”

Southgate has not yet spoken to Rashford over his back-to-back nights out partying in Northern Ireland.

The Three Lions boss added: “I haven’t spoken to many of our players at all since December. I’ve let them get on with their club football.

“Generally they are back from their clubs and it’s not for me to interfere.”

While Southgate is keeping tabs on Rashford, the England chief is also watching United team-mate Kobbie Mainoo.

The 18-year-old midfielder has impressed for the Red Devils in a breakthrough season and Southgate says he is already in his long-term thinking.

Southgate said: “He’s doing brilliantly for a young player and had an excellent start for United.

“I’m not certain he’s necessarily going to be a defensive midfielder, as such.

“He’s quite a progressive player. But he’s had a fabulous start to his career and it will be good to monitor him as we go forward.”
