Marcus Rashford reported for Manchester United’s Monday training session in a spare £600,000 Rolls-Royce after crashing outside Carrington on Saturday night.
The England forward damaged his £700,000 Rolls-Royce after the collision with a 74-year-old grandmother’s vehicle following United’s win at Burnley.
A traffic light post and bollard were also damaged in the accident, which occurred around midnight after the United squad had returned to their Carrington base by bus from Turf moor.
On Monday afternoon, Rashford was photographed driving in for training in a Rolls-Royce Cullinan 4×4 as preparations continue for Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup tie with Crystal Palace.
Both Rashford and the woman, who was said to be returning home from babysitting, were reportedly left unscathed but shaken up by the accident. Both were breathalysed on the spot by police officers.

Rashford was looked at by United’s doctor who also offered medical help to the woman following the crash, according to The Sun.
Club officials also paid for a taxi to take the grandmother home, The Sun reported, because she did not want to go to hospital.
No arrests were made following the incident, however, and police officers did not call an ambulance for the female driver.
Rashford was also left unscathed, which sources said was down to his ‘incredibly robust’ car.
One told The Sun: ‘Both drivers were badly shaken. Marcus immediately checked to see if the woman was okay and swapped details.’
Another insider added: ‘The woman was on her way home from babysitting her grand-daughter. She’s a cautious, careful driver and even more so when it’s raining — which it was.
The impact caused the airbags to go off. She was very, very shaken and confused. She’s not a football fan and didn’t have any idea who Marcus Rashford is.’
A third source told the Mirror: ‘Modern vehicles are incredibly robust and that helped to protect Marcus.
‘He got out of the car unassisted and his first thought was for the [other driver] to make sure that she was not hurt.’

Maintenance engineer Peter Laycock, 36. caught the aftermath of the crash on his phone, arriving at the scene around 12.20am.
He explained that ‘loads of police’ had blocked the road, asking vehicles to turn around because of the debris.
Mr Laycock said he saw people wearing United clothes while bystanders whispered ‘it’s Marcus Rashford’s car’.
Footage showed Rashford’s bumper ripped off the rear while hazard lights flashed.
The incident followed United’s 1-0 win away at Burnley in a 40mph zone on Carrington Spur near the Aon training complex.
Another eye-witness filming at the scene, who was being diverted a different route home by police as a result of Rashford’s crash, claimed Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes was quick to check on his team-mate as he too was heading home from the training ground.
While Rashford has been left shaken up by the crash he avoided any injury and has not yet been ruled out of contention to feature in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup meeting with Crystal Palace.
The 25-year-old is an avid collector of luxury cars and recently added a third Rolls Royce – a £560,000 Cullinan Blue Shadow – to his growing stable of supercars.
Other cars in Rashford’s expensive collection include a £280,000 McLaren 765 Long Tail and a £350,000 Lamborghini Urus Performante.
