Man Utd star Luke Shaw becomes dad for second time as partner Anouska Santos gives birth to baby girl

LUKE SHAW is a doubt to feature for Manchester United against Crystal Palace on Sunday following the birth of his second child.

The Red Devils face the Eagles away at Selhurst Park in their final Premier League game of the season.

Manchester United lefft-back Luke Shaw has become a dad for the second time

Shaw’s partner Anouska Santos gave birth to a baby girl on Friday

Failure to beat Patrick Vieira‘s side could see United drop down into seventh and into the Uefa Conference League.

United must claim the three points in South London or hope West Ham fail to beat Brighton at the Amex Stadium to secure a place in the Europa League.

But they could be without left-back Shaw for the match after interim gaffer Ralf Rangnick confirmed the England international has become a dad for the second time.

Their family has become four after Santos gave birth to a baby girl on Friday.

Rangnick has since stated that the player may not be available with the defender unlikely to feature in United’s final training session before travelling to the capital.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday, the German said: “We once again, unfortunately, have quite a few players missing and another couple of players with question marks so we have to wait for tomorrow’s last training session.

“As it stands now, there will be quite a few players missing, but I am still positive there will be a strong starting line-up and finish the season on a higher note than we did at Brighton.

“There are a few players missing but I don’t want to name all those names right now.

“A few are still question marks, Luke Shaw’s wife gave birth to their second baby today and he was supposed to be back for training tomorrow but apparently he isn’t.

“So we will have to see if he is at least able to go on the bench on Sunday.”

Shaw hasn’t featured for United since the 1-1 draw against Leicester on April 2 after he came off at half-time through injury.

Alex Telles has deputised in his absence, but the Brazilian has been guilty of poor performances at the back.
