Louis van Gaal has revealed Manchester United defender Luke Shaw could return to England on Saturday to continue his recovery from a broken leg.

Shaw broke his right leg in two places during United's 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old had an operation on the night of the game and has stayed in Holland since to continue his recovery.

But Van Gaal said he could return to Manchester on Saturday.

The United manager said:

"His family is there, we have sent people with him and he will come back when he is prepared. Maybe tomorrow."

"I called him last night. He sounds very strong, which was amazing for me - a big surprise."

"It is a good signal, but he knows he has long way to go and it is not easy... He will have a long period of rehabilitation (when he is back) and he has a long way to go."
