Marcus Rashford has allegedly parted from his sweetheart following eight years of dating.
The footballer, 23, and Lucia Loi, 23, are thought to have punched out recently, Asonaija reports.
Sources say the pair separated in the midst of lockdown pressures yet have a “mutual love and respect”.
Anti-child poverty campaigner Marcus is supposed to be crushed after his split from PR chief Lucia, who has since moved out of the Manchester United forward’s a rich cushion.
In any case, one source told the publication that in spite of them finishing things, for the present, there’s still an expectation that the school sweethearts might ‘reconcile’ after some time apart.
A source close to the football hero said: “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 and the confinement that has brought with it over the last 12 months.
“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 former couple first fell for each other at Ashton on Mersey School in Sale, Greater Manchester. She was with him as he made his name with Manchester United and England.
