Manchester United have been handed a boost with the news stating Luke Shaw could recover from a double leg-break before the end of the season, and will be fit in time to make it to the European Championships.
The English international has been out since suffering a horrific double leg break during the Red Devils’ Champions League clash with PSV.
England manager Roy Hodgson, however, still hopes that the 20-year-old left-back will be available for Euros, according to Manchester evening News.
“We’re still monitoring Luke Shaw,” the 68-year old said.
“He is making good progress, we are also monitoring Jack Wilshere, who is making very good progress. But we have to accept in March (friendlies against Germany and Holland) we won’t have those players, but hopefully in May, when I have to make a decision, they will be available for selection.”
His return would also be a huge bonus for Louis van Gaal, who has named Shaw in United’s Europa League squad with the hope that the youngster will play in the latter stages of the competition if the Red Devils advance.
England captain Rooney is also on the sidelines with a knee injury, and Roy Hodgson has given some updates on his situation as well.
“Our doctor speaks to their (Man United’s) club doctor, and we were told that it was probably going to take six weeks – at the very, very worst or could take a week or two more, which would take him into the first week of April.”
