Luke Shaw is set to undergo a second operation on his broken leg today, according to reports.

The Manchester United defender was carried off on a stretcher with an oxygen mask strapped to his face on Tuesday after he broke tibia and fibula following a challenge by Hector Moreno in the 15th minute of his side's Champions League contest with PSV Eindhoven.

The 20-year-old had surgery immediately after the match at the St Anna Hospital in Geldrop and Manchester United confirmed on Wednesday that he would remain in the Netherlands to continue his recovery.

Should the second operation be a success, United will look to bring Shaw back to England this weekend.

He is expected to be out for around six months.

The injury is a huge blow to Manchester United with Shaw being arguably their best player of the season so far. He had started all of United's eight games and also featured in England's Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland.
