Summer signing Luke Shaw set to miss 1st 4 weeks of Man United's season with hamstring injury

  • Print

MANCHESTER, England - Luke Shaw, one of Manchester United's two major signings this off-season, has been ruled out for about four weeks with a hamstring injury.

United announced the injury to the England left back on Wednesday, three days before the club begins its Premier League campaign against Swansea.

Shaw, who became the world's most expensive teenage player when he joined United for a reported 27 million pounds ($46 million) from Southampton in June, has struggled in preseason with fitness problems.

With United having sold long-time left back Patrice Evra to Juventus, new manager Louis van Gaal is expected to start the season with youngster Reece James filling the left-sided berth in the Dutchman's 3-5-2 formation.
