Manchester United defender ‘determined’ to win starting spot under Jose Mourinho


England international Luke Shaw has reportedly made his mind up to fight for his Manchester United and he has no plans of leaving the club during the final year of his contract.

The 22-year-old had another average season last term where he was subject of public criticism from Jose Mourinho and he ended the campaign with just eight starts in the Premier League.

Despite this, Shaw has not lost hope of reviving his United career and he is prepared to utilise the pre-season tour of the United States to push for a regular role in the absence of Ashley Young, M.E.N reports.

It is added that the former Southampton graduate is keen to fight for his first-team position during the 2018/19 campaign and he remains keen on extending his contract beyond the summer of 2019.

Shaw has not quite convinced Mourinho to hand him a regular role at left-back but he could change the manager’s perception on him with an impressive showing in pre-season.

Young is not expected to start the Premier League opener after his World Cup exploits and Shaw has his best chance yet to prove his credentials with not much competition behind them than Matteo Darmian.

So far, Mourinho has not shown any ambition to pursue another left-back this summer and this has, for now, stalled Darmian’s exit after Daley Blind  was permitted to seal his return to Ajax.
