Manchester United star Rashford was seen chatting with the American former welterweight champion after his win against Tyrone McKenna.

Rashford was overheard in a video clip asking Prograis to tap in his Instagram handle, so he could follow him.

The Man Utd forward is enjoying time away from Manchester after he was subjected to heckling by Red Devils fans following defeat to Atletico Madrid that condemned them to Champions League exit.

The 24-year-old was accused of swearing at the fan after being seen pointing a finger.

But the MBE - who raised £20million to feed kids in need during the pandemic - denied the claims, revealing he pointed his index finger, not his middle, as he reacted to the heckling.

Despite that, United star Rashford has apologised for 'letting emotion get the better of me' - saying he's 'only human'.

Rashford can enjoy the luxury of a holiday after he was left out of Gareth Southgate's England squad for the upcoming friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast.

He has struggled this season - scoring just twice since November.

However, Rashford played through the pain-barrier for TWO years with a shoulder injury before having surgery after Euro 2020.

As a result, he missed the opening few months of this campaign.

But he is said to be considering his future after losing his first team place.

Barcelona are believed to be watching developments closely.
