Luke Shaw is optimistic about his chances of featuring for Manchester United again this season and forcing his way into contention for England’s European Championship squad this summer, according to The Telegraph.
Shaw has been sidelined since September of last year having suffered a double fracture of his right leg in a Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven.
Louis van Gaal suggested that Shaw will find it difficult to play again this season last week but the player himself is hopeful.
The 20-year-old is looking to take some part in Man United’s final three games against Norwich City, West Ham United and Bournemouth beginning on May 7th.
The FA Cup final, should United reach it, would give Shaw another chance to feature on May 21st. England then have two friendlies, one against Turkey on May 22nd and one against Australia three days later, before boss Roy Hodgson names his final squad for the Euros at the end of the month.
United’s world-class medical professionals have helped Shaw’s recovery every step of the way and if they deem him fit enough to play, their opinion should be trusted. It is a long shot to make the Euros but Shaw will be determined to give himself the best chance possible of featuring.
