Luke Shaw hopes he will be back in a Manchester United shirt before the end of the season.
The left-back suffered a horrific double fracture of his leg in United’s opening Champions League match of the campaign against PSV Eindhoven on September 15.
He has not yet returned to full training but is happy with how things are going and is targeting a return to the first team.
Shaw told the United website: “I’m back outside now. Still with the physio but day by day I’m getting better and fitter.
“I’m just going to keep pushing now until the end of the season and see what happens but at the moment my leg feels really great every time I go outside.
“There were a few aches at the start but now they’re all gone so it’s back to hard work and hopefully I’ll see the fans before the end of the season.”
Manager Louis van Gaal has already talked about Shaw potentially playing in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on May 21.
England boss Roy Hodgson, meanwhile, would consider taking the 20-year-old to Euro 2016 if he proves his fitness.
Shaw admitted the road to recovery has been tough, saying: “I missed football so much.
“It was hard for me to watch it at times because I missed it that much, I just wanted to be out there, but now I’m on my comeback I can start enjoying watching it because soon I’ll be out on the pitch with the lads.”
