Luke Shaw to miss the rest of the season for Man United, could miss Euro 2024

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw could miss the remainder of the campaign due to a recurring leg injury, according to the Daily Mail.

Shaw was forced off late in the first half of United’s win at Luton Town last weekend, and there are new concerns over his fitness. 

The England international recently returned from a three-month thigh injury lay-off and was looking to play an integral role in the final stretch of the campaign, but the club fears his season is over.

This latest setback comes just a week after he was substituted at half-time against Aston Villa.

The 28-year-old leaves a hole in manager Erik ten Hag’s squad, particularly with Lisandro Martinez also sidelined with a knee ligament injury. 

Replacing Shaw is a massive challenge, considering his natural deputy, Tyrell Malacia, is unavailable after knee surgery and faces further recovery delays.

To make matters worse, United have terminated Sergio Reguilon’s loan when it looked like his services would no longer be needed, and he has since joined Brentford. 

Reguilon’s departure leaves Victor Lindelof and Sofyan Amrabat, who have struggled in the left-back role, as potential options.

Shaw’s injury is also a major concern for Gareth Southgate, with crucial European Championship preparation matches on the horizon.

He will miss pivotal friendlies against Brazil and Belgium and potentially the tournament.

With 13 Premier League games and the FA Cup campaign remaining, United must face the harsh reality of navigating a crucial period without their key left-back. 

Despite missing some key players, Ten Hag will be desperate to turn this season into a success story after their struggles, and they will be keen on a top-four finish. 

The Red Devils have won four games on the spin, climbing up to sixth in the Premier League, five points away from Aston Villa in fourth.
