MANCHESTER United ace Marcus Rashford is back dating his childhood sweetheart — just eight months after their “painful” split.
University graduate Lucia was then spotted getting into the England forward’s car following United’s 1-0 defeat against Wolves on January 3.
She also posted a cryptic picture on Instagram of a tattooed man’s hand resting on her boot.
A source said: “The intent for them to get back together has always been there.
“The break was good for their relationship as it offered them both space and assurance that they wanted to make this work moving forward.
“They have been together since school so an opportunity to breathe and focus on themselves was important.”
Another source said: “They have a shared history. She is one of the people who knows him best. They got back together before Christmas and are taking things slowly.
“But they make each other happy and he knows she is loyal and he can trust her.”

The Sun told last May how Marcus and Lucia had ended their relationship and she had moved out of his home after the Covid lockdown created issues.
At the time, a source said the pair — who had spent eight years together — had a “strong mutual respect and love” for each other.
Last year, Marcus was made an MBE after he helped raise £20million for children to receive free school meals during the pandemic.
His campaign resulted in the Government providing summer vouchers for 1.3million children eligible for free school meals.
