The full-back will have surgery on his return to England after sustaining the serious injury during Manchester United’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to PSV Eindhoven
Manchester United have confirmed defender Luke Shaw has suffered a double leg fracture and will have surgery on the injury on his return to Manchester.
The defender was caught by Hector Moreno after breaking into the box, and play was delayed for around 10 minutes before he was eventually helped from the pitch.
Our thoughts go out to @LukeShaw23, who has suffered a double fracture of the leg. He will have an operation on his return to Manchester.

Marcos Rojo came off the bench to replace the former Southampton left-back, with Louis van Gaal consoling his player as he left the pitch.
The England international has been a key player for United this season, starting all seven matches to date as well as both of England’s European Championship qualifying clashes.
This is not the first time Shaw has suffered injury problems in his time at Old Trafford after struggling with fitness during his first season with the 20-time Premier League champions.
