Man Utd's Shaw returns to training

Luke Shaw

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw returned to training on Monday for the first time since breaking his leg almost seven months ago.

The England left-back, 20, suffered a double fracture in the Champions League defeat at PSV Eindhoven in September.

Shaw’s return was confirmed by United team-mate Juan Mata, who uploaded a picture of the pair on Instagram.

“My friend Luke Shaw just came in from running out on the pitch! Getting closer,” added the Spain midfielder.

Shaw is still in contention for Euro 2016, according to England manager Roy Hodgson.

Hodgson wants United to allow Shaw, an England regular before the injury, to prove his fitness before naming his squad on 12 May.

However, Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal said last week he does not think Shaw will play for the team before the tournament.
