Manchester United are prepared to end their association with Luke Shaw when the transfer window reopens in less than 50 days’ time. The England international has struggled to settle at Old Trafford since his £30m move from Southampton in the summer of 2014.
According to The Times, Jose Mourinho is prepared to part ways with the left-back in the New Year, should any club match his £20m valuation. The Portuguese tactician has criticised the Englishman for his poor work-rate and attitude in the past, and he appears to have finally given the green light to cash in on the 22-year-old.
Turkish giants Fenerbahce are already said to have approached over a loan move in the January transfer window, but both the player and club are looking for a permanent deal in order to end their association once and for all.
As per The Times, a host of Premier League clubs including former side Southampton are keeping tabs on the left-sided defender, who requires regular first-team football to make a point to the national team coach ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
Shaw has made just one start for Manchester United this season with the likes of Ashley Young, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian preferred ahead of him in the left-back/left wing-back position.
