Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford has split from childhood sweetheart, Lucia Loi, after being together for eight years.
The duo split amid the pressure of the COVID-19 lockdown but are said to be on good terms and share “mutual love and respect”.
According to The Sun, Lucia has also moved out of the England star’s house in Manchester following the break-up.
A close family source who spoke with the paper said Rashford has been devastated following the split.
“After eight years together, Marcus and Lucia have made the mutual decision to part ways.
“It is a result of the pressures and strains of the COVID pandemic and lockdowns.
“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,” the source said.
Lucia has been with Rashford even before he made a name for himself with Manchester United and later as an England international.
