Shaw has been injured since September of last year having suffered a double fracture of his right leg against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.
It was feared that Shaw would be out of action for the rest of the season but he is ahead of schedule in his recovery.
The 20-year-old is expected to return to training following the international break and he could be back in action in the final few weeks of the campaign.
Shaw had been superb for Man United prior to his injury and it would be fantastic to see him back in the side before the end of the season.
There will be fears that the club are rushing him back too soon but United have a wealth of world-class medical professionals at their disposal and they will know exactly when to bring him back into the fold.
