Man Utd 'fear Luke Shaw injury is worse than first thought with defender set for MONTHS out' | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED fear Luke Shaw's injury could be worse than first feared, according to reports.
The England left-back was initially expected to be out for weeks in a huge blow to Erik ten Hag.
It is reported the 28-year-old has suffered a muscular injury.
In a statement, Manchester United confirmed that he would miss "a number of weeks".
However, the Manchester Evening News state that after further assessments, Shaw could miss up to two months of action.
That has left Ten Hag with no senior left-backs in his squad as Tyrell Malacia is also crocked.

It means Diogo Dalot or Lisandro Martinez could fill in this weekend against Nottingham Forest.
Shaw has started both of Manchester United's matches so far this season.

They then play Arsenal before the Premier League pauses for an international break.
Shaw could have expected to be a part of Gareth Southgate's England squad for the games against Ukraine and Scotland.
The former Southampton youngster has been blighted with injuries during his career, although last term he was unavailable for just three games because of injury.
In 2021-22 he missed 18 games because of multiple issues, and sat out of the same number of matches the year before that.
Manchester United allowed one of Shaw's understudies, Brandon Williams, to go on loan to Ipswich earlier this week.
The news comes in the same week that Mason Mount also suffered an injury.
The summer signing is out until at least the international break, and potentially longer.
In more positive news, fellow new arrival Rasmus Hojlund could make his debut this weekend having arrived at the club injured.
