Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal has tipped hs 20 year old left back Luke Shaw to have an impressive 2015-16 campaign.

Shaw struggled with successive injuries in his first season at Old Trafford and could not have a regular starting place for the club after joining the 20 time English champions from Southampton.

The 20-year-old appears to have put those woes behind him, having featured in all three of United’s International Champions Cup fixtures after taking a fitness coach on holiday to Dubai in a bid to stay in shape.

“Luke Shaw is a big talent,” Van Gaal told the press. “He’s very young so it’s not so easy for him to come from Southampton to as big a club as Manchester United.

“He has the benefit that he’s an Englishman. Memphis Depay is a Dutchman and it’s a different culture, a different rhythm to the game.”

“So I think that it shall be the season of Luke Shaw, that I believe. I believe in him and he has to feel that and I hope he shall show it.”

“But he’s only 20 years old. How many players of that age are playing in the Premier League?”

Manchester United have so far signed four players in this window in the form of Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin and having a good pre-season campaign.
