Marcus Rashford has reportedly broken up with his long-term girlfriend Lucia Loi.
The footballer, 23, and Lucia Loi, also 23, are thought to have called it quits earlier this year, according to The Sun.
Lucia was with Marcus as he made his name with Manchester United and England as they had been dating since high school.
However, a source told the publication that despite ending things for now, there is still hope that the pair might ‘reconcile’ after some time apart.
A source close to the Manchester United star said: “After eight years together, Marcus and Lucia have made the mutual decision to part ways.
“There is a strong mutual love and respect for one another, having met at school, and there is a continued dialogue with the hope of a reconciliation in the future.”
It is reported that Lucia has moved out of the United star’s home in Manchester but that things were left ‘amicable’.
The pair first started dating in high school, or more specifically at Ashton on Mersey School in Sale, Greater Manchester.
Lucia has been seen supporting Marcus at football games over the years, including during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
She was also by his side during his recent fight against the government in support of feeding Britain’s starving children – something that he received an MBE for back in October.
Food redistribution charity, FareShare, teamed up with the star and said donations from the England footballer and his fans have funded more than 21 million meals.
FareShare handed out the equivalent of 128.5 million meals in the year since March 23 2020 – more than double the number in the previous 12 months.
However, Marcus’s focus will now be on Manchester United’s Europa League Final game against Villarreal, which takes place on Wednesday 26th May.
Rashford’s performances on the field this year have helped Manchester United secure Champions League football next season.
He’ll also be in the England squad for the Euros, which starts in June of this year.
