Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that defender Luke Shaw will undergo a scan on Friday as he continues his recovery from a serious injury.
The England international broke his leg in two places during the Red Devils' Champions League defeat to PSV Eindhoven back in September, but it appears that the former Southampton man is making good progress at this early stage.
In fact, Van Gaal previously hailed Shaw as 'unbelievable' after the full-back started walking back in October.

But, with an important scan around the corner, it appears that Shaw will find out how far he has come over the coming weeks. Of course, with Euro 2016 on the horizon, the talented defender will no doubt be desperate to prove his fitness sooner rather than later.
The Old Trafford faithful certainly won't want Shaw to rush back, however, as it's crucial that he handles himself correctly upon his return to the game.
Shaw may well be in attendance as the Red Devils welcome PSV to Old Trafford tomorrow night. United can secure their place in the Round of 16 of Europe's elite competition by securing all three points against their Dutch counterparts.
Currently sitting at the summit of Group B, United fans will be expecting their side to deliver on home soil. With the talent available in Manchester, there's no reason why the Red Devils won't secure qualification.
Attention will then turn to Saturday's top of the table Premier League showdown against Leicester City on Saturday. United will be determined to inflict revenge on the Foxes after being on the end of a 5-3 defeat to the league leaders last season.
