Louis van Gaal has revealed that Luke Shaw could return to action before the end of the season as the defender continues his recovery from his horrific leg break.

The England international has been out of action since September after suffering the injury during United’s Champions League defeat at PSV Eindhoven.

Shaw has been stepping up his rehabilitation in recent weeks as he looks to return to full fitness as soon as possible.

Asked if Shaw could make his return to action before the end of the season in the Europa League, Van Gaal told a news conference on Friday afternoon: “He could play in the final, eh? Maybe you don’t think that but it’s still possible that Shaw could play in that final. I have said that to him.

“You never know. Still, it is halfway [through the recovery]. It can slow down, his revalidation, so we have to wait and see.”

Shaw will no doubt be keeping a close eye on proceedings as Van Gaal and his Manchester United side are preparing for their Premier League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils are currently fifth in the table and five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.
