Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is at St George’s Park with England squad continuing his rehabilitation from injury

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw was expected to miss the rest of the season following an injury relapse.

However, he could be back before the end of the campaign following an update from The Times chief football writer Henry Winter.

According to the journalist, the Red Devils star is currently continuing his rehabilitation with the England squad at St George’s Park.

Shaw will not be involved when England meet Brazil and Belgium on Saturday and next Tuesday, respectively.

However, manager Gareth Southgate’s invite speaks volumes as England want the Man United defender at the European Championship in June.

The 28-year-old was withdrawn against Luton Town last month following a knock and has played just 15 games across all competitions this term.

Man United manager Erik ten Hag was forced to play Aaron Wan-Bissaka at left-back against Liverpool last Sunday.

He could keep the former Crystal Palace star in the position after the international break after Victor Lindelof returned to centre-back for the FA Cup game.

While the Red Devils are short of options at the back due to the injuries Shaw and other defenders have sustained, England do not have such problems.

The Old Trafford club could do with him right now as they look to end the season by securing a place in the Champions League next term. However, Ten Hag will not want to rush Shaw back into action.

England are interested in his recovery despite the plethora of options available in the position as he brings much-needed experience to the table.

Shaw will be hoping he can return on time and make the squad to Germany for the tournament.
