Manchester United Transfer News and Luke Shaw Update

Luke Shaw suffered a horrific challenge in the Champions League group loss to PSV Eindhoven. A two-footed scissor challenge from Mexican centre half, Héctor Moreno, resulted in the United left back suffering a double Tibia fracture in his right leg.

Shaw has been kept in Eindhoven due to his first surgery, and now the Englishman is to go under the knife again to further attempt to fix his broken leg.

The Red Devil left back is set to miss between 3-6 months with his injury but, may end up missing the entire season if he struggles in the rehabilitation stage of his recovery.

In a logical turn of events, Manchester United have cast their eyes upon PSV left back Jetro Willems as a replacement for their injured defender.

Jetro Willems, 21, has been PSV’s first choice left back for the last 4 seasons, and is one of the best young defenders in the world. He has 8 goals and 27 assistsin 142 appearances for the Dutch side.

Luke Shaw, 20, has never scored for neither Southampton nor Manchester United, and only has 3 assists in those 95 appearances.

The Manchester United medical staff are keeping Shaw in Eindhoven until all necessary procedures are completed and he can safely return home.
