Injured Man Utd star ‘hopeful’ of being ready for first Premier League game

Several of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team regulars will need to be assessed upon their returns to the club this summer. Harry Maguire missed part of Euro 2020 with ankle ligament damage, Marcus Rashford is a doubt going into the season and new reports have cast doubts on Luke Shaw’s fitness.

A report on Tuesday morning claimed that Shaw had played up to four games at the tournament with broken ribs, having initially suffering the injury in the 2-0 win over Germany in the round of 16.

The injury evaded public knowledge for the duration of the knockout stages but could now be a cause for concern as Solskjaer awaits news over his first-choice left-back.

According to the Guardian, Shaw is ‘hopeful’ of being fit to feature in United’s Premier League curtain-raiser against Leeds on August 14.

The 26-year-old looked to be largely unrestricted in the three games that followed and even assisted twice and scored in the final after allegedly sustaining the injury.
