Luke Shaw set to see out the final year of his contract despite run-ins with Mourinho

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is prepared to stay put for the final year of his Old Trafford contract despite receiving limited gametime under Jose Mourinho last term.

Earlier in March, the Englishman was reported to be considering a summer exit after falling out with Jose Mourinho in an FA Cup quarter-final game against Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, Shaw thereafter managed to start a few games towards the end of the season and he is now keen on remaining with the club despite offers from Chelsea and Tottenham, The Mail reports.

Shaw was recruited under Louis van Gaal from Southampton in 2014 with a view to becoming the club’s left-back for the long-run. But things have since not gone as planned for the 22-year-old but he appears optimistic of regaining the confidence of Mourinho.

Shaw’s poor attitude and fitness concerns have been echoed by the Portuguese on many occasions and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Englishman, should a new player come in.

Alex Sandro of Juventus have been touted as the leading target for this summer’s transfer window with Mourinho allegedly wanting to replace Ashley Young in the left-back position next season.
