Louis van Gaal has claimed this weekend that there is a possibility of Luke Shaw featuring for Manchester United in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace.

Shaw attended an event at Carrington earlier in the week, and has spoken about his recovery from the injury last year which has seen him miss out on the season so far.

I have missed football so much. It was hard for me to watch it at times because I missed it so much and I just wanted to be out there. Now I am on my comeback and I can start enjoying watching it, because soon I will out on the pitch with the lads. It is great to be back in the changing room with them so I am really looking forward to it.

I am back outside now, still with the physio but, day by day, I am getting better and fitter. I am just going to keep pushing now until the end of the season and see what happens. At the moment, my leg feels really great every time I go outside. There was a bit of aching at the start but now they are all gone. It is just back to hard work now and hopefully I will see the fans before the end of the season.
