Manchester United is hopeful that Luke Shaw will return to play for the first-team before this season ends.

The 20-year-old left-back has not featured since suffering a double-leg fracture against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League in September.

According to a new report from The Telegraph, Shaw is in line to return to full training next month.

While it was originally believed Shaw’s season was over after the injury, Louis Van Gaal surprisingly included his name on Manchester United’s Europa League roster. The final for that competition is set for May 18, with Shaw given an outside chance of being fit should United advance that far.

Shaw will also be hopeful of returning to try and earn a spot on England’s national team for EURO 2016. After featuring for England at the World Cup in Brazil, Shaw looked on track to be a starting defender for Roy Hodgson’s side.
